Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 4 servings Maybe Zelda has the night off. Or you’re more focused on a main item, like the Brisket (page 142) or the Rack of Lamb (page 151). Or maybe you just feel like a bunny. Doesn’t matter. This […]

Butter-Roasted Carrots

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 4-8 servings The kugel, to me (a gentile), is the epitome of Jewish comfort food. It makes me wish I’d had a bubbe to make this for me. Both the Weissman and Maisel households would have a kugel on rotation. […]

Potato Kugel

So I made this with asparagus, but after careful consideration [read: several helpings] I’ve come to the conclusion that it tastes better without. So. Add the asparagus if you like—it’s ~250 g, or about one bunch without the tips and woody ends—or not, your call. I’m not anti asparagus. I actually love the stuff. But […]

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 4–6 latkes Baz: “Next time, I’d like some latkes.” Midge: “I make great latkes. Genius latkes. You won’t be sorry!” Oh, Baz. He knows he’s in a great position. As long as he gives Joel a terrible time, he […]

Latkes

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 2–4 servings Cauliflower smells like farts. There’s no way around it. Hopefully the Weissmans knew this as Zelda prepared the pureed cauliflower for the failed Mordecai Glickman dinner (spoiler alert: Mordecai’s dead). Otherwise they assumed the worst of her. […]

Cauliflower “rice”, guanciale, pesto

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 2 servings We don’t see much fish in the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel world. Which is a shame. Fish are funny. Especially the clown fish! (Though they’re too slapstick for me…) Astrid is surprised her gefilte fish gift goes missing, and Susie’s […]

Pan-Seared Roughy, lemon, mint, chive butter

Note: this was supposed to come out on Father’s Day. But then I spent days and days editing it and then … forgot to post it. So, like many things I do, this one will be late. Father’s Day is here. And with it, my annual confusion over where to put the apostrophe. Is it […]

Father’s Day

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Ah, the G and T. The quintessential summer sipper. I highly recommend using good-quality gin and tonic. For gin, I love the citrus, spice, and Italian juniper The Walter Collective uses. Malfy also makes a fun gin. But use whatever […]

The Gin & Tonic

This light, airy chocolate pudding comes together in no time at all. If you use a darker chocolate than the 60% called for, feel free to add a few tablespoons of sugar to compensate for the increased bitterness. Serves 2 4.5 ounces (125 g) 60% dark chocolate 1⁄2 cup (110 g) heavy cream4 (140 g) […]

Chocolate Pudding

Makes 2 servings Canola or vegetable or, in a pinch, olive oil Beets Kosher salt, as needed Fill a small saucepan with two inches of oil. Depending on how many beets you’re making, this could be a large saucepan or small. I use a 1.5qt saucepan for 2-4 servings. Heat the oil to 375˚F (190˚C). […]

Beet Chips

Vesper, in Latin, means evening, which happens to be the best time to drink this particular cocktail. How coincidental that its name is also its prime drinking time? (Those Latins were on to something.) This is the drink that put James Bond on the map. Or maybe I have it backward (I do). Maybe I’ve had […]
