On my recent vacation in Bali, I relaxed, shopped, went to the spa, made jewelry and learned to cook.

The Caraway Cooking Class teaches all kinds of cooking classes and is located near Nusa Dua in Bali.  That is where I learned to make my own spring rolls, use a mortar and pestle, wrap food in a banana leaf and make spicy sambal.

The sun was setting over the Indian Ocean at the Rock Bar at AYANA Resort and Spa.  The sky a mix of red, yellow, orange, purple and blue – like a box of crayons spilled across the sky.  The 21 hour, two stopover marathon flight from JFK was most certainly worth it for this moment.

If you’ve never been to Bali, it’s about time to add this beautiful island to your bucket list.  The people are incredibly friendly, greeting the weary traveler with the warmest of smiles.  Our driver, Nyoman, was a walking encyclopedia of Balinese culture, traditions and traffic avoidance techniques that would have made the late Steve McQueen proud.

You are sitting at home imagining yourself traveling from country to country. Whether it is Thailand, Korea, Japan, India or Vietnam. You occasionally stop to purchase a hotel or house, or sometimes just stop to think “imagine if I was in…”

Many of us have already visited Asia but we are not referring to just the countries, we are referring to the different kitchens and culinary inspirations.

Special diets due to allergies are seen more and more these days and Jenna Short is no stranger to allergies. Trained as a graphic designer, Jenna discovered a dairy allergy after eating her way through Italy – which you’ll hear more about later. Although finding out you have an allergy can be difficult, Jenna turned her discovery into a business venture. After some experimentation with cooking, she opened up her boutique catering company called ShortbreadNYC, and recently came out with a new cookbook, Cooking Allergy-Free, where every recipe comes with notes for specific allergies and how to adjust most to fit any diet.

At this moment I am questioning my life choices, I am enjoying a refreshing mango popsicle despite the fact that today was supposed to be day-two of the snow-pocalypse that turned out to be little more than a normal winter storm.  Tomorrow morning I won’t be able to escape a slippery-sliding trip to the subway on my way to work, but for now I can dream of recipes that will convince me that I have escaped to a warmer climate.

 


 

How To Celebrate a Tu b’Shevat Seder

Tu b’Shevat is one of these hidden minor holidays, which haven’t gotten much attention until the last few decades. It is kind of a New Age, cutting age type of holiday with no ‘don’ts’ and not even any specific must ‘dos.’ If you are looking for spiritual renewal through mystical teachings, meditational practice and conscious mindful eating, then Tu b’Shevat has much to offer.

On Tu b’Shevat, the sap in the tree begins to flow once again to revitalize the tree. The secret of Tu b’Shevat gently whispers; “when everything looks dead, dark and murky, life, light and glory is hiding just below the surface.” The time when nothing seems to be happening on the outside is the beginning of the richest inner life. Tu b’Shevat begins a period of renewal for the individual and the community. On Tu b’Shevat we can tune into the redemption of spring. Even though we may be experiencing the winter of exile in both personal and collective stage of our lives on the outside, a new life force begins to emerge within our souls on the inside.

Mediterranean Lamb Meatballs with Pomegranate Glaze Posted 01/27/2015 by ToqueandScalpel
As we celebrate the Tu bishvat holiday this recipe came to mind. The components of this recipe bring together flavors that are the essence of holiday. The earthy distinctive savory flavor of the lamb combined with lemon and garlic. Which is then complemented by the sweetness of the pomegranate glaze. I have paired this with a Couscous of dates and toasted almonds. When you take one bite your mouth will crave more.

The Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat is one of four “New Years” mentioned in the Mishnah and you don’t have to wait until midnight to start your celebration! Occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat, there is a widespread custom to eat foods of the Land of Israel, wheat, barley, grapes, figs and pomegranates, a land of olives and date honey.

In celebration of the grape, we wanted to introduce three special kosher wines from Israel to celebrate Tu B’Shevat:


 

Cooking With Joy: Chunky Red Chili

Over the summer we went to a BBQ festival as a family. We tasted every team’s chili, it was awesome! Our 6 year old loved walking around tasting the different tortilla chips that accompanied every team’s chili, so he was super thrilled to have “Team Mommy’s” chili to taste with chips at home. We were all really looking forward to dinner!

As per the recipe, this was only supposed to take 10 minutes to prep. I didn’t find it that quick at all, between opening the cans and browning the meat, it took more like 25 minutes. One thing that I didn’t understand about this chili was the need for the stew meat. While I am sure it added flavor, it never became soft, even after the 2 hours of cooking.  Next time we make this; I would either use just the ground meat, or maybe add in some brisket instead.

Because Tu B’shevat has fallen out on shabbos lately, I can’t seem to remember what it’s like to celebrate it outside of the normal shabbos meal.  I suppose it’s the same really, except that we get two celebratory meals in one week, and double the normal amount of cooking.  To help keep things simple, below are three Tu B’shevat menus that are holiday worthy, but won’t have you slaving away for hours in the kitchen after work.
