To light the eternal flame, the children of Israel are commanded to bring pure oil of olives crushed for lighting, maybe that is where my eternal love of olive oil came from. I use olive oil in most everything. The diversity of flavors – from herbal to earthy can bring out the best of breads, salads, vegetables, fish, poultry and even steaks. Olive oil is a precious part of our Biblical tradition and our culinary heritage. Let's celebrate Shabbat with olive oil.
The fish course is usually cold, so don't save ceviche just for Summer. It is tasty and easy to prepare any time of year.
Nothing beats saffron when making Spanish food, gotta try this chicken.
Stuffed fingerling potatoes are a fun treat with a spicy bravas sauce.
These green beans are flavored with lots of onions.
Don't forget to feature the olive oil in your dessert!!
