Grilled Eggplant with Feta, Mint, and Chili

2 Comments 27 March 2012

 

Besides being an amazing artist, my friend Rina is a gourmet cook who is always whipping up fantastic meals with her mom Barbara Azizo in their seaside home by the shore. Last Shabbat,  I decided to pop in on Rina and Barbara  as I was going on my daily walk/jog to the boardwalk. Fresh fruits and vegetables lined their kitchen counter.  Rina didn’t skip a beat as she prepared one main dish after another. One item that really looked spectacular was her grilled eggplant (grilled before Shabbat) that she was rolling with a delectable feta mixture.

When I snuck a taste of Rina’s rolled eggplant with feta, I knew that I had to get the recipe for my hostesses.

 Enjoy, and please follow Rina’s Facebook page, Project Face as she pledges to  recreate her “face” 365 a year! WOW!!! Keep up the great work, Rina!  Marlene

Two Classic Crispy Matzo Crust and Meat Filled Pie Recipes

Two Classic Crispy Matzo Crust and Meat Filled Pie Recipes

1 Comment 27 March 2012

 

image via http://www.thatssoyummy.com/

Dear Hostesses, As the countdown to Passover begins, we are all on the hunt for great Passover recipes. This Shabbat, while skimming through all of my cookbooks, I found 2 great recipes  that I know will be  winners. I am deciding between the two, and leaning towards the second recipe with the added potatoes. The second recipe  serves more guests than the first recipe.  

I am planning on making it and freezing this matzo meat pie before the final baking stage. I think it would be perfect for a holiday meat lunch, or during the week as a Passover meat dinner. Its a fun dish because not like some other recipes, the family will always remember these recipes as a specifically Passover dish.  Enjoy! Marlene

P.S. Comment below- which recipe would you choose? #1? or #2?

Recipe By: Claudia Roden, Adapted from The Book of Jewish Food

Serving Size: 5

  • 1 large onion — chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb — or beef
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (I would personally omit the raisins- my kids would never eat this dish if a raisin touched the meat))
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts — or walnuts
  • 1 cup beef stock — warm (buy without MSG)
  • 5-6 matzo crackers
  • 1 small egg — lightly beaten

In a skillet, fry the onion in 2 T. oil over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes until golden. Add the ground meat and spices. Cook, stirring, until meat has browned but is still moist, about 10 minutes. Add raisins. In another small pan, fry the nuts in the remaining 1 T. oil for about 1 minutes, stirring the nuts or shaking the pan until the nuts are lightly colored. Add to the meat mixture and stir.

Place the stock in a large, shallow, rectangular pan. Soak matzohs, one at a time, pressing them gently to absorb the liquid. Press 2 or 3 softened matzohs in a 9-inch pie plate. (You may to tear or cut matzohs with a scissors to accomplish this.) Place the meat mixture on top of matzohs, and use the remaining softened matzohs to cover pie.

Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush the top with the beaten egg and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.

This particular blend of raisins, nuts, spices and meat is characteristic of the Arab world.

 

Passover Matzo Pie #2

(adapted from “The Book of New Israeli Food”)

Serves 8


CRUST

  • * 1/2 cup olive oil (for brushing)
  • * 8 to 10 boards plain matzo
  • * Oil a deep 9-inch pie pan

Fill a large shallow bowl with cold water. Dip the matzos in the water for 10 to 20 seconds, then transfer them to a clean kitchen towel, making one layer without overlapping them. Cover them with another damp towel and set aside for 15 minutes or until the filling is ready. The matzos should be soft and flexible.

FILLING

  •  * 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • * 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • * 1 large onion, chopped finely
  • * 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • * 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or lamb
  • * Salt and pepper, to taste
  • * 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • * 4  eggs
  • * 2 tablespoons matzo meal
  • * 2  medium potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • * 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • * 1/2 cup chicken stock

Set the oven at 350 degrees.

In a small dry skillet, lightly toast the pine nuts over medium heat, shaking the pan constantly, for 5 minutes or until lightly brown; set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. When it is hot, add the onion and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Add garlic, beef or lamb, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the meat is browned. Stir in the cinnamon. Set aside to slightly cool.

Stir in the eggs, matzo meal, mashed potatoes, pine nuts, and parsley.

Brush each matzo with olive oil. Take one and place it in the dish oiled side down. Brush the top with oil. Do the same with other matzos until the bottom is covered, letting the matzos drape over the edges of the pan. Spread half of the meat mixture in the dish. Cover with 1 matzo, oiled side down; brush with oil. Spread the remaining meat mixture on top. Fold the draped matzos over the filling to cover the pie. Place 1 more matzo on top; brush with olive oil.

Set the pie on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake the pie for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, pour the chicken stock over the pie and return it to the oven for 5 minutes more or until the top crust is crisp.

Dear Florence, Thank you for sending in your gorgeous party pics! Its amazing that you made all of the desserts and displayed it all by yourself. It totally looks like you hired a party planner! You are fantastic! Marlene

“Hi Marlene!
I love your blog and I’m always checking in for beautiful inspirations!

I recently had my daughter Giselle’s first birthday party and I thought I would share the results. The theme was princessy with lots of hits of pink and royal purples. I made the cake, matching cookies, cake pops, chocolate lolly pops and macaroons all to coordinate with the theme.

I used mirrors and different shaped glass containers for the display. Martini glasses held pink or purple candies, a large square vase doubled as a biscotti cookie jar, smaller vases held pink and purple chocolate lolly pops while two trifle bowls were filled with homemade french macaroons and berry salad. I tied the tall vases with ribbon to match the tulips, one was dedicated to pink and one to purple. ”

3.  A Seder Tablescape that helps feed the less fortunate in Israel- by Miriam Kairey

“This year I have added a special mitzvah to my seder.  I purchased place cards from Meir Panim.  Each card represents a donation to feed the hungry in Israel.  So as we are feasting we can remember our cousins in Israel, some of whom are unfortunately not eating as abundantly. On my table is a chicken dish I just made up.

 Crunchy Chicken Cutlets

  • 2lbs. thin boneless chicken breasts
  • Breading: 8 boards matzoh
  • 4 Tbs dried oregano leaves
  • 2 Tbs. coarse salt
  • 2 Tbs. Paprika
  • 6 eggs

Break up  4 Matzoh boards in the Cuisinart.  Add half the other ingredients. Pulse until coarsely chopped.  Some of the matzoh will be finely ground and that is ok.  Empty crumbs into a bowl and repeat. Bread chicken by dipping into dry crumbs, then eggs, then dry crumbs again. Fry until golden.

Happy Pesach wherever you are!” Miriam

4.  Thank You  Patti Rotman!

“Our family has made the trek from Toronto to Florida for 23 years to celebrate Passover with special relatives. With so many decades and age ranges represented, our table always combines fun and tradition. From the frogs “jumping” out off each wine glass and a “plague” finger puppet at each place setting, to the cover for shmura matzah, we always celebrate in a joyous, traditional and inclusive fashion. Chag sameach to everyone at the Jewish Hostess” Patti Rotman

8. Bringing the Outdoors In! by Natalie Greenberg

Hi Marlene-
I was really inspired to create a beautiful seder table this year after viewing all of the ones on your website.
This year we will be so many people that we do not fit in my dining room! So I set up in the living room.
I have green accents in the living room so I used that idea to create a spring seder look.
I rented tables and cloth toppers ( they look like trellises!) from All Affairs, and everything else I own.
The created the place card holders from votive candle holders that I already owned and filled them with
babys breath and then a name card. I will use the leaf platters for all of the greens.
I am so pleased with my look- can’t wait to finish cooking and sit down to enjoy!
Have a very happy holiday- send my love to your family.
Love, Natalie Greenberg

“Dear Marlene,

Hag Sameach! I enjoy following your blog-

We had a fun seder for 24 relatives and friends.  My husband made the seder fun for the many kids at the table as well as the adults.  There were hand motions for the order of the seder, role-playing, lots of questions and festive singing.  For karpas we like to do a fun vegetable dish so that people do not wait to eat until too long.  This year, for karpas I served a roasted eggplant and tomato napoleons with pesto.   It was delish!  At dinner we enjoyed brisket, apricot chicken, quinoa salad, roasted veggies, and sweet potato.  For dessert, we had my signature Pavlova, an apple cake, and a chocolate mousse cake from my aunt.  All had a delightful time.  Thanks, Oksana V.

1  1/2 cups vanilla rice milk

2 tablespoons raisins

Thank you to the Mosseri ladies for sharing your gorgeous “Pretty in Pink” birthday party for your very special granddaughter. You really didn’t miss a single detail, and the  happiness and effort that you put into this table really shines through! I love how the pink and white theme was played up using flowers, your chocolate dipped strawberries, and even the Syrian rosewater pudding “suttlage” was dyed pink!!  Marlene
P.S. Every day or so I will be posting more dessert bar pics so that we can pick the winner of the Amy Atlas Sweet Designs book. You still have time to email your pics to my photos@thejewishhostess.com.

“As soon as my granddaughter Jacqueline was born, I knew I wanted to see her name in flowers. Once she was old enough to laugh and smile we knew that she was ready for her party. We planned Jacqueline’s party with a girly and feminine theme in mind. Everything was pink and white, including the tablecloths, flowers and the outfits of many guests. The party was a success because so many people helped including Shirley Barnathan who designed the flowers which fit the pink motif perfectly. Also Fortune Farca designed and created the cake which matched the pink with white polka dot napkins. Jacqueline’s party was exactly how we, my daughters and I, planned it to be.” Jacqueline Mosseri

The theme was Dylan's Candy Bar so I wrapped cubes with Dylan's wrapping paper and put octagonal 
mirrors on top for individualized food. The food was all homemade and placed in differently shaped mini lucite cups and bowls. 
(From left to right) mini penne noodles with sauce, mini veggie pizzas, calsones, mini pizzas, 
fried breaded fish, mini spinach cupcakes, mini salmon with teryaki sauce over couscous, 
sambousak, grilled french green beans with peppers, and mini challi rolls. 
The names for place cards were written on the little striped candy boxes and the napkins were 
Dylan's Candy Bar dessert napkins. For dessert there was 10 different hard and chewy candies in cones 
to choose from, mini Oreo cakes with frosting, mini fruit kabobs , Kit Kat and
M&M cake and Dylan's Candy Bar fondant cake. (All homemade)."

A Seder Table That Could Split The Sea!

11 Comments 12 March 2012

Dear Hostesses, Enjoy this seder table designed by two talented sisters for Passover 2011:
I’m so impressed with Alexis and Sarah Mizrahi. You can not put a price upon the creativity and energy that went into this table. Give these girls a round of applause for a job well done, and after Passover please call Alexis and Sarah for all of your gourmet flavored popcorn orders!!!  Marlene
“Hi Marlene,
Our Crazy Corn business was closed for Pesach – so we had a lot of extra time on our hands and wanted to surprise our mother with a beautiful table. We made our own hagadahs out of croc embossed leather we found in the fabric store. We had my father reprint the hagadahs we’ve been using in my family for years and covered them in leather and trimmed them with ornate ribbon and tassles. To top it off we had our names printed on them.
We bought some turquoise fabric, and used it as a tablecloth. We had extra leather and used that as the runner and then added another touch of the turquoise with pleated tulle running down the center – it definitely added to the holiday spirit by giving off the aura of the splitting of the sea. We got 4 tall skinny vases and place them along the tulle. As the centerpiece we put a modern white tall cake plate that we used as the ke’ara (seder plate)
To really tie it all together we found this crazy sequined trimming which we made into napkin rings.
We also found these gorgeous gold croc embossed chargers that took the table over the top.
My mother and all of our guests were wowed and really felt as if they were sitting by a kings table!! We’re thinking about switching our professions! lol
We went around the house and found things that we could put the symbolic foods in to complete the look. We put the celery and salt water in martini glasses, the endives in champagne flutes, bitter herbs in vases and the haroset in dessert cups. The guests found it cute, to be dipping into martini glasses, and pulling endives out of champagne flutes!!
We want everyone to know that its really not hard or expensive to set a table like this. we bought everything from save-a-thon (including the vases $5 each and chargers!!) ok, so the Hagadahs took some time, but everything else was done with ease!!
If this is what we can do to an ordinary table, imagine what we can do with popcorn!?!
email us 4 tips and ideas and of course to order Crazy Corn!
Alexis & Sarah Mizrahi”
