Have you ever tried cooking your chicken low and slow? It is a common method of cooking the best brisket, but not as well known for chicken.  There are a few ways to do this, our recipe takes advantage of garlic and lemon and some chicken broth to really bring out all the flavor.  Our chicken cooked for a few minutes at 400 degrees, but then the oven temp is reduced to 250 and the chicken cooks for another 1 hour and 45 minutes until it reached the perfect golden color you see in the picture.   The meat is moist and delicious and the skin comes out perfectly crispy.

Sending Mishloach Manot to friends and family is an obligation on Purim, but coming up with new ideas for your Mishloach Manot each year can be difficult. We all want to be creative and ‘wow’ our friends and family, but there are so many great ideas out there and narrowing it down to just one can be hard.  On Purim, there is an obligation to drink alcohol and cocktail inspired Mishloach Manot is a creative way to connect the obligation of drinking alcohol with Mishloach Manot. These three Purim inspired cocktails can easily be turned into Mishloach Manot using the packing instructions below and adding the cocktail ingredients.

There are quite a few secret pantry ingredients we all like to keep around, one all time favorite is Gold’s Duck Sauce.  It comes in a few flavors including hot and spicy and sweet and sour so you can tweak each recipe as desired.  The duck sauce provides a flavorful coating for any protein source, meat, chicken, fish and even hot dogs.  The texture of the sauce helps keep the food moist and tender and every recipe is quick and easy and absolutely delicious.

The Jewish holiday of Purim begins this year on Wednesday evening at sundown on March 4, 2015, and continues through Thursday night, March 5th.  The customs of Purim include “feasting and merrymaking,” in addition to “sending gifts to one another and presents to the poor”.  At Joy of Kosher the weeks leading up to Purim and through Passover include a lot of wine tasting.  It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!


 

Celebrate Purim With A Vegetarian Seudah

When you’re away from home, eating kosher can be difficult. You might be able to find a suitable restaurant nearby, but maybe not. For many of the people I know, it’s easier to eat vegetarian meals in those circumstances, so there’s never an issue about kosher meat or mixing meat and dairy.

That’s precisely what Queen Esther chose to do when she lived at King Ahasuerus’s palace — at least according to most historians. And so it has become tradition to celebrate Purim with a vegetarian seudah.

Iranian Cuisine is a unique and beautiful cookbook with recipes written in both English and Persian. Author Vida Leveim was born in Teheran and Persian culture and cuisine is close to her heart. The recipes are very authentic with ingredients like rosewater, cardamom and saffron in many of the dishes. It is a great cookbook to use to experiment with a new culinary tradition especially during Purim-time when you can impress your guests with a delicious Persian Seudah!

Not long ago I was eating a delicious Crème Brûlée at a popular restaurant in Tel-Aviv when I noticed the chef had used sesame as his main ingredient. As I savored my dessert, I started thinking about these flavorful little seeds and just how central they are to Israeli cuisine.

In fact, you could call sesame the king of Israeli cuisine.

Who is to say whether or not the banquet Queen Esther planned for the King didn’t include some plant-based dishes? There is talk about her vegetarian stance in the palace and just maybe her switch to eating more fruits, vegetables, tubers, legumes, and whole grains impacted how she felt in her body and in the world.

We asked two top kosher chefs to share their favorite way to prepare quinoa. Chef Yosef Schwartz of Hassid+Hipster, based in South Florida, shared a new technique in prepping quinoa. Chef David Kolotkin of The Prime Grill shared a savory quinoa pancake.
