Fashion Flash Book Review: Jack’s Wife Freda
I am on a seemngly endless journey to find recipes for health packed meals that are totally delicious. Not tasty, not decent, but knock your socks off lip smaking wonderful. On Mother’s Day my beautiful daughter Karen took me few steps closer to my goal with the gift of a new cookbook, Jack’s Wife Freda. I love the usually vegetarian food at this crowded Weat Village restaurant, but now I can recreate my favs at home.
Jack’s Wife Freda draws from the flavors of both Isreal and their Arab neighbors. The easy blend of flavors and traditions gives me hope for future peace in the area. Co-existance is just one of the lessons in this wonderful cookbook. Most of the ingredients are inexpensive, easily available , packed with flavor AND bursting with antioxidants. For breakfast/brunch, I never get tired of poached eggs with roasted tomatos and greek Haloumi cheese. Topped with a homemade salse verde, its rich, salty, and savory– all at the same time. It takes minutes to make with ingredients found in a well stocked kitchen. For lunch, I am addicted to the pea and ricotta toast, a low fat ( and affordable) version of everyday avocodo toast. For dinner I have two favs– North African duck tangine, rich with dried apricots , mint and cinnamon and the classic crisp Israeli schnitzel. Served at the same table its peace among neighbors the way it should be.
