New Jewish Foodie Blog

Ruti Abusch-Magder, a scholar-in-residence at the University of Chicago Hillel is doing outreach based around food and gender (sometimes together, sometimes not) and has set up a blog to promote and record what she’s up to.  The blog is pretty new so there isn’t much there, but she does have a post and a poll about the annual Latke/Hamentaschen debate which was started at UofC, and some interesting things to say about the origins of Israeli breakfast.  Head over to Challah Maven, vote for your favorite (latkes or hamentaschen) and stay tuned for more interesting discussions.
