Tablet Magazine - a new read on Jewish life
Feed Your Soul
Chicken soup is nourishing, as we know, not only for the stomach but also for the soul. No wonder it’s one of the most famous (and beloved) Jewish foods. But which recipe is the best? Late LA AIDS activist Mollie Pier made a classic version. Joan Nathan perfected traditional matzo ball soup. Or, if you want something spicy, try this Yemenite recipe. Heck, try them all!
The Doctor Is In
Joan Nathan mentions one of the people helped popularize shakshuka: Dr. Shakshuka, who operates a restaurant in the old city of Jaffa. You can read about Bino Gabso (the man behind the moniker), and how he refined his recipe in prison, in his Tablet interview.
