Round-Up – November 13th

I’ve been hard at work preparing Nosherium’s Thanksgiving coverage – cooking, baking (beautiful pumpkin bread, for example), making a right old mess! The posts will be up next week, and will help you master making the iconic dinner for smaller groups with varied culinary and dietary needs. Vegan stuffing? I’m your food blogger. Gluten-free guests? I’m your food blogger. In search of a simpler way to make turkey? I’m your food blogger.


In the meantime, check out my round-up of the best of the quirky culinary internet!

  • They say our palettes change over time, if you want proof and a good giggle, watch what happens when children are given fancy chocolate.
  • The sad, beautiful, and very culinary story of James Hemings, Thomas Jefferson’s enslaved, French-trained chef.
  • Autumn is the time for experimenting with interesting spices. If you want to explore the world of warm, comforting seasonings, check out this post about alternatives to the ubiquitous pumpkin spice.
  • The queen of delectable cooking in a tiny space, Deb Perelman, gives a tour of her kitchen.
  • We all know that tensions are high in Israel and the region, and one restaurant is doing their part to boost Jewish and Arab friendship. Anna Ahronheim from i24News reports.
  • As a child, I hated mushrooms. Now they are one of my obsessions (they will feature in my Thanksgiving menu!). Here’s how to get perfectly golden results every time.
  • Michael Solomonov’s new book Zahav sounds sublime – beautiful, refined takes on Israeli foods (no mixing of meat and dairy in any of the recipes! Kosher win!). This cardamom-infused Turkish coffee ice cream sounds dreamy.
