Building Community Together
BY ELANA HORWICH for JewishJournal
Here is a dish, chicken meatballs, that pays homage to the lost Jewish heritage of Sicily. In the Middle Ages, the vibrant merchant posts of southern Italy and Sicily were part of the Spanish Empire, and hundreds of thousands of Jewish merchants lived there, trading, studying Torah and complaining about the humidity. These Jews traded with Arab and North African neighbors, adopting elements of their cuisines.

Jamie Geller, The Joy of Kosher
Crispy, savory mushrooms are a delicious palate opener. This salad can be served in smaller portions as a starter or in larger portions as a main dish for warm summer nights.
