Now we know this whole thing can be gamed, as I’m sure everything […] more…

Getting ready for the “Super Sunday Gravy Throwdown”

I did a practice run making gravy this weekend. With a few minor tweaks, Nikki thinks that team Jew has a pretty good shot at winning. If I do win, it will be because of the meatballs. My meatballs rock the house y’all. Just to whet your appetite, here is a pic of said meatballs […] more…
Cablevision and Scripps get their shit together!!

Cablevision and Scripps get their shit together!!

Welcome back Food Network, it’s about time. I’d like to think that the two companies settled their differences due to the roaring success of “That Jew Can Cook”, but maybe not. Now that I got the bug creating videos, there’s no turning back — Episode 4 will be on its way! more…
Season 1 – Episode 3: Jewish Wedding Soup

Season 1 – Episode 3: Jewish Wedding Soup

With all the advertising dollars rolling in, we really went out on a limb for this episode with multiple camera angles (albeit a little overexposed and out of focus) and a wardrobe upgrade. I almost made it through the episode without touching my face... more…
Opus One

Opus One

This summer we went to Napa for a few days, and we made it a point to hit several high profile wineries. Opus is renowned for their cab and while the wine was quite good, it was not worth the money nor dealing with the attitude from the employees (and even the architecture). I did […] more…
Potato Zucchini Torte

Potato Zucchini Torte

Here is the recipe from Episode 2, which is a slightly modified version of something I found in Bon Appétit.  If the measurements seem different from the video, its because that was a scaled up version to serve fourteen people. Bon Appétit’s original recipe was good, but was a bit bland and needed a more acid […] more…
Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

For those of you that couldn't follow along with Episode 1, here is the butternut squash soup recipe in its entirety. You'll notice that I left out the step about dropping a pot of hot curry squash broth on the floor, it tended to make the cook a little bitter! more…
Season 1 – Episode 2: Potato Zucchini Torte

Season 1 – Episode 2: Potato Zucchini Torte

This video is me making a potato zucchini torte for our New Year’s party (which is the same party we served the soup). Things went a lot smoother in this episode but it wasn’t nearly as entertaining as the first one, which I attribute to lack of bacon.  It is definitely a lot better than […] more…
Kale Crostini

Kale Crostini

Kale is like some crazy prehistoric spinach. I don't know why broccoli rabe gets all the spotlight while kale is relegated to garnish at crappy salad bars or buffets. more…
Season 1 – Episode 1: Butternut Squash Soup

Season 1 – Episode 1: Butternut Squash Soup

This was my first attempt at doing a cooking demonstration. I could tell you who is not “The Next Food Network Star”, or the next “Top Chef”. I learned a lot from making this, “don’t touch your nose when cooking”, “look into the camera”, “know how much fits on a memory card“, “prep everything first […] more…

The fun begins…that Jew can blog too

Today I published the first episode of “That Jew Can Cook”, the video series. While I need a lot of work on the production side and hosting talent,  it should be good for a laugh or two.  Make sure you stick it out to the end… more…
