Berry Trifle Recipe

Just because we’re celebrating in smaller numbers this year doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in big, extravagant fashion when it comes to the food we’re serving. Our Berry Trifle with Vanilla Cream is a showstopper, both in its dramatic colorful presentation and its deliciousness. It’s the type of dessert that you can leave out while playing board games next to the fire and there won’t be leftovers. It’s sorta healthy. Sorta. We first heard of a trifle on an episode…

A Bishkek Tea Recipe

When we travel around the world, we pick up a few favorites. So today’s culinary inspiration is Bishkek tea from the eponymous capital of Kyrgyzstan (we know, doesn’t that roll right off the tongue?). But seriously, this tea is the stuff addiction is made of. That is if addiction was made of ginger, honey, fresh fruit, and your favorite tea, piping hot each time. A Crossroads in China, Russia, and Turkey This summer, I made a bucket-list trip to the…

Chef Shani’s Israeli Food Secrets

Major props are due to chef Eyal Shani, who went from zero to 60 with his restaurants — starting out with pita joints, which led to $36 avocados (massaged, by the way, until so tender they melt in your mouth — and worth every penny). Chef Shani created a whole category for Israeli food. Here he shares a few of his secrets. If you’ve ever dug into a whole roasted cauliflower at your favorite trendy restaurant (think Father Knows Best…

The Essential Guide to Israel

Right about now we know you’re starting to think big about travel plans — whether for the holidays or for next year. If there’s a destination that’s considered “It,” we’d like to nominate Israel. Take away the fact that it’s the birthplace of Western religion, as well as all the politics and economics in the region, and what do you have? You have a place where the Israeli wine flows, the nightlife extends to the wee hours, and the culinary…

A Turkish Breakfast

Before we get into it, let’s level set that this is not just a random breakfast. The Turkish breakfast, which in Turkey you can even get at a roadside equivalent of 7-Eleven, is a lavish feast. (And it was the best meal of a recent trip.) It’s where small plates of everything from cheeses to eggs to olives to cucumbers to honey are brought out, and you can’t help but get involved. Here’s how to do up your own. If…

Zoey Deutch

We’re dating ourselves, but we originally heard of Zoey Deutch because of her Back to the Future connection. Zoey’s the daughter of Lea Thompson, otherwise known as Marty McFly’s mom. But this up-and-comer proves she stands on her own, having crushed it in some major films this year. Also under her belt are these three top places to travel. Zoey Deutch is kind of a silent killer. She’s been on the Disney Channel, in blockbuster movies like Before I Fall, and…

Kazakhstan on the Brain

It’s not as random as it sounds, because I’m fresh off a trip to the Five Stans. It’s ok if you have no idea where that is; it’s not exactly mainstream. I get asked a lot about my bucket list, and this region, which includes Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and especially Uzbekistan, was at the top. This area was once part of the Old Silk Road trading routes. The region has natural beauty of the mountains as well as mind-blowing…
