Yield: 2 servings Risotto isn’t difficult to get right. It’s impossible. Cook it too fast, and it’s soupy undercooked rice. Too slow? And you’ll never get dinner on the table. What is it about risotto that makes me want to take a nap midway through? Try as you might to follow a recipe from a […]

Risotto, tomatoes, feta, paprika

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 16 cookies How much do I love Herb Smith? Exactly as much as Vern, with every bone in my body. He’s is one of my favorite cameos. Such confidence, such charisma, and such poor joke-writing skills. Did anyone else want […]

Brown Butter Rugelach

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 4 servings How beautiful is this salad! So good. So pink. So salady. But not too salady. Almost no green stuff, save for a few leaves of mint and pistachios, if you can count those. Use the ripest watermelon […]

Watermelon salad, feta, mint, EVOO, harissa

Note: this recipe was part of a book I wrote called Eat Like A Maisel. Yield: 4 servings The Weissmans eat salad more than a few times during the first season. Their tastes generally lean toward a simple lettuce salad—which surely has more to do with Zelda’s laziness than the fact that it’s a prop—but […]

Chickpea and Olive Salad

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 […]

farro salad, parm-reg, greens, seeds, olives

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 […]

I'm a comedian, chef, reluctant podcaster, actor, award-winning photographer, emotional minimalist, and for some of you, your biggest fan.
