Ten For ’10

Looking back on a very good year for kosher wine.

Special To The Jewish Week

When 2010 drew to a close, it ended what had been a remarkable decade for the kosher wine industry. In the past 10 years the quality and quantity of kosher wines around the world has expanded at a far more rapid pace than anyone would have predicted.

A good year for kosher wine

The Art Of The Meal

Editorial Assistant

What is the perfect dish to enjoy while watching a film about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? It must be a pastry marrying a saffron- and rosewater-scented kataifi base (a Turkish delicacy) topped with a New York-style cheesecake.

Dessert and dialogue: A film of conflict will be the backdrop for a pastry uniting two cultures.

Making Winter Sparkle On A Budget

As we turn the page on 2010, it’s time for a Champagne cocktail.

Special To The Jewish Week

Got the deep-freeze, wintertime blues as New Year’s approaches? Sun lamps can help you beat back the feeling. So can a weekend trip to a tropical locale. But personally, when the snow and ice has me feeling a bit glum, I find that a nice glass of Champagne always hits the spot.

Time for a Champagne cocktail.

Fortified Wine: A Good Fall Bracer

A warming choice for the season.

Special To The Jewish Week

After a warmer than usual September, autumn has started in earnest —making this just the right time of year indulge in a warming glass of fortified wine.

Fortified wines are wines to which distilled alcohol, usually brandy, is added during the wine-making process. Not only is the wine’s alcohol content increased, but the process can have profound effects on the wine’s flavor and mouth feel. Indeed, fortified wines often seem to combine the flavors and heft of wine, with the warming sensations of distilled spirits.

The Tio Pepe Kosher Fino Sherry got high marks in this month’s tasting.

Making It A Rosé Summer

Special To The Jewish Week

When it’s “hot town, summer in the city,” as the iconic song says, few potations are quite as refreshing as a nice, ice cold, glass of rosé.
