Greek Feta French Fries with Roasted Garlic Aioli

Here’s the thing about potatoes, specifically french fries, they are great on their own. You know, french fries are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, golden brown and hot from oil… I mean it’s just perfection. But when you add a few key ingredients it gives them an extra boost of flavor. You literally are taking your fries to a whole new level! To elevate, these fries I have cooked them using a double fry method and topped them with loads of crumbled feta, a generous sprin...

Traditional Mosbolletjies

When researching for interesting bread from around the world I came across this South African bread called Mosbolletjie.  I then played round in the kitchen, developing my own version of the recipe, and after a single bite, I fell in love with this delicious bread. The best way to describe mosbolletjies is that it’s a sweet brioche, traditionally made with fermented grape juice and flavored with aniseed. There is just nothing on earth like a torn piece of mosbolletjie ...

Chicken Tinga Tacos

Hey Guys! I had a crazy busy schedule this weekend. For my brother Yoni's birthday, we went to a restaurant Saturday night, which was really yummy and fun. The following morning, I spoke on a student panel at my high school's open house then met with my stylist for a photoshoot of me in the outfit she styled for the event later that day. That evening I headed into the city for the 5th Annual Orthodox Jewish All Stars Awards where I was a judge at the cooking competition. It was such an incred...

But I'll be honest, when my cookie cravings come on I don't always want to wait for the butter to soften and to make a whole elaborate cookie. I need something super simple but at the same time yummy and satisfying.  These Chocolate Dipped ...

Redoing My Spices

Today is an exciting day! Hands down, my favorite ingredients in my kitchen are my spices. Whether I am mixing them together in a spice rub for fish tacos or frying them in some ghee for an Indian curry, I love cooking with spices. Spices are used all around the world to add flavor and aroma to our favorite dishes.  Up until now, at my house, we had a big collection of spices, but to be honest it was kind of a mess.  It was always hard to find the spice we needed and very often ...

Homemade Gnocchi with Browned Butter & Sage

Gnocchi are little Italian dumplings, primarily made of potato, that are the ultimate comfort food! I first remember making gnocchi at a culinary course I took a few years ago at ICC and have been making it at home since. I fell in love with Gnocchi’s plump, pillowy texture and mild, delicate flavor that pairs so well with many flavorful sauces. By itself, Gnocchi is great but when the little pillows are doused in this browned butter sage sauce and topped with nutty, freshly grated ...
