Zucchini or yellow squash are stuffed with a mixture of ground beef and rice. This dish is especially perfect for Sukkot when it is a custom to eat stuffed foods.

Note From Jamie: It was nearly impossible for me to get an exact recipe for Iprach from Rachel and Zukhit Aharon who taught me how to make this traditional Kurdish dish in the 2nd episode of Joy of Israel. So I turned to one of my go-to kitchen lifesavers, my Israeli born Kurdish sister-in-law Chanie. This here is her version. Rachel recommended making this the night before and refrigerating for at least 8 hours before adding the sugar, salt, lemon juice, oil and water and simmering on a low flame for at least 3 hours. You see here Chanie's instructions are slightly different but I imagine both ways work well. Enjoy!


Broiled Tomatoes


September 1st 2010By Jamie Geller

I love fresh tomatoes. Even as a kid in summer camp, I made a friend on the kitchen staff so I could have tomatoes smuggled to me. My taste buds haven't changed, just evolved. Nowadays, I love grape tomatoes, plum tomatoes or the expensive, imported Israeli or Holland tomatoes on the vine. Every now and then they're worth the splurge.
