Monday March 12th: The Biblical Feast 

I got the inspiration for this wonderful meal some years ago during a fascinating visit to Naot Kiddumim, near Jerusalem, where everything that was used to grow and harvest the "Sheva Minim" (olives, pomegranates, figs, grapes, dates, barley and wheat) is still intact, just as in the ancient days when it was operating. They even have a wonderful restaurant that serves their timeless goodies. I promise you a great throwback!


I'll be demonstrating:

  • Trout baked in grape leaves
  • Chicken with pomegranate sauce
  • Date-nut bread
  • Barley pilaf with kabocha squash and raisins
  • Almond, olive oil and honey spread
  • Warm fig tart

My Recipe for Spelt Linguini in Fennel Tuna Sauce   


If it is true that opposites attract, no dish would bear this out better than this one. Tuna  and Fennel! Besides, here is a whole new and fun way to eat canned tuna! Do not be alarmed by the fact that I don't drain it-that's practically all the oil contained in the dish, and that's where all the good flavor is. No added salt, please, as the tuna has enough to season the whole dish.
You need not write off pasta as a high-carb dish: Choose spelt pasta, or soba noodles, or rice noodles etc.... and enjoy pasta as often as you like, as do I!
