Purim Table Decor That’s Fit For a King

6 Comments 20 November 2011

This Purim create a table setting that’s fit for a king… King Ahashverosh- Maybe?

I know the original Purim feast took place in Persia, but I imbibed this table setting with Middle Eastern flair from around the region including elements from India to Morocco.

They key to this super saturated and princely look is textures like bone in lay and pressed tin, with layers of handmade textiles and mixing colors with names that make your mouth water!

Happy Purim Everyone!

Almond Date Truffles for Tu B’shvat

9 Comments 01 January 2011

Don’t miss out on Tu B’shvat this year! We traditionally celebrate this day by eating fruits of the seven species from  Israel that is praised in the Torah: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranate, olives, and dates. Ancient Sepharadic Jews originated  the idea of a  Tu B’shvat seder, where participants enjoy munching on a variety of fruits and nuts, drinking wine, and discussing the day’s spiritual and mystical meanings.

Dates are a great Tu B’shvat ingredient for two reasons: first, they are one of the seven species.  Second, they are really delicious – available fresh in season and dried year-round, dates are super sweet and almost candy-like.  They are great by themselves or added to a variety of sweet or savory dishes.

Almonds, another one of the “Tu B’shvat seven”, are loaded with calcium and protein.  Traditional truffles are made of chocolate and heavy cream – yes, they taste great, but they’re far from healthy.  This modern spin on truffles  are a rich, sweet, and a wonderfully healthy alternative to their chocolatey counterpart. Encourage your kids to try these healthy treats and remind them of the the Tu B’shvat holiday. I will be serving them for Shabbat dessert this week so that we can get a head start on Tu B’shvat, which begins on Thursday, January 20, 2011. Enjoy! Marlene

Kosher Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dried dates
  • 1 cup chopped  almonds
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder and/or ground walnuts to coat (optional)

Directions for making this Kosher Recipe

  1. Grind almond in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a baking sheet and toast in oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until fragrant  and slightly darker.
  2. Place the dates, almonds, cocoa powder, and honey in a food processor.  Pulse the processor until the mixture comes together to form a ball.
  3. Form cherry-sized balls out of the mixture and roll them in cocoa powder , ground almonds, or coconut to coat.  Enjoy them right away or store them in the fridge for later!
