    I would love to make the bene Israel fish curry

  • JamieSchler  on  4/30/2017 at 8:49 AM

    I love Joan Nathan's cookbooks - I own Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous and always find the perfect holiday dishes in it. I also love the stories she shares. I would love a copy of King Solomon's Table - as a cook, food writer, but especially as a Jew discovering Jewish recipes from other countries and other cultures fascinates me.

    Syrian-Mexican chicken with apricot, tamarind, and chipotle sauce sounds intriguing.

  • sgump  on  5/1/2017 at 4:39 PM

    I love matzo brei. I wonder how different this recipe would be from my standard version (though I have other Joan Nathan books and have likely tried at least a variation on a version appearing in an earlier cookbook)?

  • Karla123  on  5/3/2017 at 7:42 AM

    Falafel with cilantro, tahina sauce, and pickled mango sauce would taste great with pita bread.

  • finebec  on  5/3/2017 at 12:38 PM

    Charoset from Italythat was featured in the New York Times article about this book. I would probably not have time to do it on the eve of a Passover Seder. Nothing prevents me from eating the rest of the year
