After reading this week’s portion of Metzora, it’s understandable if you’re not the least bit hungry.   Leprosy and the details surrounding ritual impurity do not exactly give one inspiration for a Shabbat menu, but the challenge remains.  The kohen (Jewish priest) purifies the recovering leper with an elaborate ritual involving two birds, spring water in an earthen vessel, a piece of cedar wood, a scarlet thread and a bundle of hyssop.  Somehow, we’ve got a mouthwatering menu that includes EVERYTHING if you consider Saffron the scarlet thread.  Who knew this parsha could taste so good?

  1. Took a stroll around your website and am entranced by the flavors. I read cookbooks like some people read novels. I would love to have a regular dose of your recipes.
