I just love that I get to cookÂ alongside so many amazingÂ people. The winner of our first Kosher Master’s Competition, Avi Katz, visited our test kitchen in sunny Florida andÂ showed me my favorite new dinner hackÂ -Â Â chicken in aÂ bundt pan. YES! AndÂ like me,Â you’llÂ now be running to buy your very ownÂ “meat” bundt pan after you see this.Â The magic of course is a combination of the pan + the ingredients. Our friends at Colavita sent us a stash of EVOO so we just had to make sure our birdÂ had a nice spa day, which equals a well oiledÂ massage,Â pre spiceÂ rub. (Made with brown sugar, thyme, cayenne,Â and one secret ingredientÂ Â you’ll use over and over again.)
I also got to cook this week in Abhu Ghosh with Ibrahim and a special Brithright culinary tour run by Israel Experts.Â We learned how to make Kanafeh, a traditional Middle Eastern cheese pastry drenched in sugary sweet syrup. Kind of like a cousin to Baklava.Â Which I learned there are more than 75 version of – WOWZERS!Â I’ll have to make it myÂ biznassÂ to try each and every one of them!Â You with me?
