New Kosher Cooking Magazine
A wonderful new magazine, Bitayavon, was just introduced in February and features "MODERN AND TRADITIONAL RECIPES FOR THE KOSHER COOK".
There was a time when the kosher cook only dreamed of such publications, but now it is a reality. Bitayavon, is an exciting, high end kosher cooking magazine – created by kosher foodies who combined their knowledge and passion for cooking to create a magazine to which they would want to subscribe.
Published every two months, it will "introduce readers to new ingredients, new ways of cooking and present traditional recipes in an eye opening way." The feature articles include Eating in Season, Kitchen Disasters, People on the Street, Cooking Competitions, Family Dinners and much more. The goal of Bitayavon magazine is "to satisfy the ever growing palate of the kosher cook in a unique, revolutionary way."
Bitayavon magazine shared two fabulous recipes with KosherEye:
• Seared Tuna with Pineapple Salsa and Balsamic Reduction – perfect for Passover and year round.
• Basil Pea Risotto – an Italian classic that is perfect after Passover, when you want to have a delicious rice dish.
Bitayavon magazine is available in supermarkets and newsstands throughout the USA and Canada. To learn more about them, or to subscribe, please visit Bitayavon.com.Add a comment
Passover Tabletop Traditions
A wonderful way to permanently preserve the names of those dear friends and family who attended Passover and holiday celebrations. Cookbook author and cooking school owner, Tina Wasserman asks her guests to sign a special tablecloth with an indelible pen – she then embroiders the signatures. A perpetual heirloom in the making. We love her idea! Tina's creative project can be expanded to celebrations throughout the year, whenever writing is not a Halachic issue. Tina can be contacted on Facebook, Tina Wasserman Cooking and More.

Purim Baking with Chef Laura Frankel
KosherEye's fabulous Foodie "Friend", Chef Laura Frankel, is sharing her wonderful recipes for homemade Hamantaschen with our readers. This year Chef Laura has decided to use a Persian theme for Purim – what fun!
From Chef Laura's website, Laura's Kosher Kitchen:
"Every year I wait until the last minute to even think about Purim and making hamantaschen and before I know it the holiday sneaks up on me and I end up buying hamantaschen at the store or bakery... This year I am armed and prepared to bake my own. I have a recipe for each week and if I stick to the plan I will have enough of the gorgeous goodies to serve my family and friends in my home and even enough to put in cute little bags for mishloach manot or gifts to friends."
To read the entire article and to follow her hamantaschen baking quest (complete with recipes), please visit her at Laura's Kosher Kitchen.Add a comment
We wish that we could eat these toffee, caramel, chewy, crunchy, luscious, rich milk chocolate coated confections as slowly as a turtle. But, instead they are so delicious, that we gobbled them right down. Each layer in this chocolate candy offers another taste sensation. What a bite.
The product has just been certified Kosher dairy (Kehilla kosher) and is available at select Whole Foods Markets in California. It will be going national soon. Visit ToffeeTurtles.com.

Popcorn and a Movie – or 10
When watching a movie, popcorn is a “must” for us. We love this sweet and salty homemade Caramel Popcorn recipe from Martha Stewart Living. Make a batch, settle back, watch the Oscars and munch away!Add a comment
Rösle- the Apple CORER of our eye
Although it is late into apple season, for us apple pie season never ends. So, we have been coring apples to store in our freezer! The fruit corer we love is our new discovery, the Rösle.
We have been testing this kitchen helper since December. It is easy to hold, easy to use, and can core an apple or pear with one twist. It is basically a long, sharp 18/10 stainless steel cylinder with a sharp serrated front ring. This narrow dishwasher safe tool easily cores fruit, and because of its shape is easily stored. This is a perfect tool to buy now, since apples and pears are in so many kosher for Passover baking recipes.
And,we are going to give it a try on pineapple too. Now, how we wish that we could find a peach stoner – since the southern peach season will soon be approaching! Anyone have a peachy suggestion?Add a comment
