1 Comment 17 December 2014

We are really lucky to have  this  Hanukka table setting from the famous Doris Dwek, an acclaimed party and event planner in the NYC area.

Doris, thank you so much  for all of your hard work and attention to every detail of your hanukkah holiday table decor!

Doris can  help you design a gorgeous one of a kind event invitation,  or if you want to create an impressive children’s party, bar mitzvah, or any type of memorable themed event!

p.s.  Thank you Grace Dabah for the gorgeous photography!

“Hi Marlene,

For this Hanukka display, I applied  gold paint  mixed with gold glitter  to wood branches as a centerpiece. I also dipped dreidels into the gold paint and  tied them on to trees with pretty ribbon for the Hanukkah centerpiece . Gold sparkly  initials attached to mirrored squares were used  as elegant place cards.

Organza ribbon and chocolate coins were assembled and used as a napkin ring. I used inexpensive fabric from Joanne fabrics to make a cloth runner .

The artificial silk flowers look  are from Paris and can be purchased from  Surrey lane stores in Brooklyn and Deal N.J.
The glass goblets can also be purchased at Surrey Lane also. Happy Hanukka to all of the Jewish Hostesses out there!

Doris Dwek”

Rosh Hashanah flashback-2011!
Raquel Habert is a very busy woman. Besides finding the time to cater everybody else’s Rosh Hashanah holiday table, she also found time to create a fabulous Parisian lunch for her entire family. This lunch is a perfect inspiration for SUKKOT, so keep these pics on your desktop and wait for your stomach to start rumbling!!! Call Raquel to cater your next party! Enjoy! Marlene

Hi Marlene,

Inspired from my trip to Paris last year – I wanted to serve all the food in individual portions Not being able to  find the right table cloth, so I went to the fabric store and bought a black leather cloth and made a runner from that black and white fabric. I happen to love inspiring messages, so each Eiffel tower place card holder  had a word printed on it – happiness, gratitude, honor, love grace etc … and each card also the guest’s name on it.

I found butterflies at Kitchen Caboodles and placed them on my napkins.
Mirrors were used as chargers.
I set up the food in the kitchen on display boxes with mirrors And I also bought lamp posts online to create the Paris street setting.
I also got the individual ramekins from kitchen caboodles and the martini glasses and large glasses for salads.

I’ll send over the pics now !

Kosher Contessa: Rack of Lamb Persillade

No Comments 17 March 2010

The Barefoot Contessa is one of the most talked about chefs nowadays. Her recipes are easy to do, and the end result looks as if you were slaving away in the kitchen. While many of her recipes mix dairy and meat, they can be adapted to fit our kosher lifestyle.

Rack of Lamb Persillade

Adapted from Barefoot in Paris

Persillade refers to a combination of minced fresh parsley and garlic that’s added to a dish near the end of the cooking.

Serves 4

2 racks of Lamb, Frenched

Good Olive Oil

2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, rinsed well and dried

1 tablespoon chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted margarine, melted

1 cup matzoh meal crumbs

2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

1. Place both racks of lamb in a roasting pan, fat side up. Rub the tops with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast the lamb for ten minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the parsley, garlic, and margarine in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until finely minced. Add the matzoh meal and lemon zest and process for a second until combined. Taste mixture and adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. Take the lamb out of the oven and quickly press the parsley mixture on top of the meat. Return immediately to the

oven and roast for another 15-20 minutes.

4. Remove lamb out of the oven and cover with aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes, cut in double chops, and serve.
