(The Nosher) Drive down any main highway in Israel on a Saturday, and you’re bound to run into a makeshift jachnun stand on the side of the road. The best-known food of the Yemenite Jewish community has now become a part of mainstream Israeli cuisine, along with a whole host of...
(The Nosher) There are so many wonderful Jewish foods to enjoy: sabich and pastrami, kubaneh and knishes, babka and bimuelos. But there’s also some seriously cringe-worthy traditional Jewish foods that still grace many holiday and Friday night dinner tables. Of course there is the argument to be made that one man’s gefilte fish jelly is another man’s caviar....
Somebody Jewish must be working for the Starbucks website. The site includes description pages for each of their products, including the Plain Bagel. Included on the page are nutrition facts.

Except, that is, in the...
(The Nosher) You may have grown up with your mom, dad or grandma frying up latkes at the stove. Probably for hours and hours. Frying up donuts may be slightly less common, at least for American Jews where the latke still seems to reign supreme over sufganiyot. But donuts are not super...
(The Nosher) When you look at the menus of the new Jewish restaurants opening around the country, the dishes most often focus on smoked meat sandwiches, hand-rolled bagels topped with colorful vegetables and cured fish, and the uber-popular (and super Instagram-able) shakshuka. Foods like tongue, herring, or borscht? Not so much. Except at...

Of all the kugels out there–potato, broccoli, sweet potato, and even carrot kugel–sweet noodle kugel is by far my favorite. Some are studded with raisins and cinnamon, some with dairy, some with cranberry. But we thought it would be fun to get a little wacky with noodle kugel and add some...
(JTA) — Not even couscous is safe from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For decades, Israelis and Palestinians have fought over land. They’ve fought over history. They’ve fought over holy sites and religious doctrine and water sources. Now, apparently, they’re fighting over the delicious grain dish that I always buy when I...

(The Nosher) With eight days, and three meals a day, Hanukkah offers ample opportunities for trying out all kinds of fried foods. You can definitely find enough latke and sufganiyot (donuts) recipes to fill up every day of Hanukkah (and then some), but there’s fortunately a world of oil-centric food...
(The Nosher) Everyone loves cookies, and we Jews are no different. Our cookies are diverse, originating from all over the world. But there’s no question: they are all delicious. Here’s our official ranking of Jewish cookies based on taste testing, research, and of course, feedback from our readers.   Rugelach Rugelach are...
