Jewish Princesses Reveal Kitchen Secrets

 

How do you describe your cooking style?

 

“Rustic Fantastic,” “Silver Service,” “Health Nut,” and “Look Don’t Cook” are among Tracey Fine and Georgie Tarn’s favorite kitchen and cooking styles.

Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a beginner, this cookbook created by the “Jewish Princesses” is packed with easy-to-follow recipes, plenty of wisdom, classic Kosher recipes with a modern-day twist, and often times hysterical narratives.

Fine and Tarn are co-authors of “The Modern Jewish Table: 100 Kosher Recipes from Around the Globe,” a comprehensive “Yes-You-Can-Cook-Jewish-Cuisine guide to extraordinary “Jewshi,” a culinary term Fine and Tarn describe as the result from mixing a little bit of this with a little bit of that. You’ll discover kitchen secrets and dozens of suggestions to help you prepare your dining table for a variety of occasions that range from a “Rustic Lunch” or “Bagel Brunch” to a “Posh Princess Dinner Party.” If you’re not inclined to create the whole caboodle, they offer recipes for small plates, soups, salads, main course meats, vegetarian recipes, and outrageously delicious Pareve desserts.

Upon opening The Modern Jewish Table, Chocaholics can immediately dive into the pages in an entire chapter dedicated to “Couture Chocolate.” You can plan your meal around dessert and then work your way back to “Small Plates” or take the time to read and appreciate the self-proclaimed foodies’ vast experience in the kitchen.

Don’t be fooled by Fine and Tarn’s playful spirits. Their style is overall casual but their collection of classic recipes is both hardcore trendy and classic. Fine and Tarn build on traditional favorites but also aren’t the least bit reluctant to incorporate ingredients from other cultures into their repertoire. The dishes you create from recipes contained in The Modern Jewish Table could, in fact, become your next family tradition.

Product Review Joan Matsui Travel Writer
Green’s Your Colour Inc.

With countless water bottles on the market that promise to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, how do you narrow down the selections?

Green’s Your Colour Inc. is “tastefully” number one on my list. Whatever beverage you choose to fill this outstanding vessel comes out at the perfect temperature with absolutely no aftertaste.

I have two bottles I carry along with me while fly fishing. One dedicated to hot liquids and the alternate is filled with chilled water or tea. The 17-oz./500 ML “Jammin’ Jade” insulated bottle is my all-time favorite. In fact, after I purchase a second bottle, I’ll ditch my old orange one and drink exclusively from a “Green’s Your Colour Inc.” bottles.

Jammin’ Jade keeps cold for 36 hours and hot for eight hours, although I’ve had mine beside me indoors and outdoors and my coffee was hot for at least 10 to 12 hours. The bottle is 18/8 stainless steel, BPA and Phthalate free, leak and sweat proof, with no plastic inner liner and non-leaching.

But best of all (in my opinion), the tea and ice strainers that are included with each bottle, are IDEAL for transporting your favorite herbal drink or ice cold water. One strainer is designed to keep the drinking spout free of ice or fruit and the second is used as a tea infuser to strain your tea leaves, herbal blends, and tea bags.

Green’s Your Colour Inc. can be used for coffee, tea, water, juice, pop, soup, and yes, alcohol. (Maybe a Margarita or Egg Nog, depending on your preference.)
