Cold moussaka with kalamata feta sauce

My dear friend Einav still speaks with envy of the time she sat with friends in Greece, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, and watched them digging into their moussaka. Layered with thinly sliced potatoes, fried eggplant that has become silky soft, and a rich, opulent bechamel sauce that pooled everywhere, this dish was the stuff…

My trip to Argentina ended up being less about food, and a lot more about people. However, the Young Jewish Travel Guide to Argentina would not be complete without the food.

I combed through Argentinian blogs, looking for the tried-and-true. I sat with Argentinian friends over steaming cups of yerba mate, writing down phrases…

Pan-seared cod with fennel-tomato ragout

A pot of fennel-tomato ragout is simmering on the stovetop, its aromas wafting throughout the house. Greg has his feet up on the table, his long body splayed along the sectional couch, limply holding a tall glass of ice-cold water in his hand.

The Young Jewish Travel Guide to Argentina {The people}

I sit on a tiny chair in an endless row of seats at the Pittsburgh airport, tightly hugging a backpack to my chest. Sobs wrack through my body, and I can do no more than bury my face in the rough, unpleasant canvas, trying to stop myself from hyperventilating. There are people all around me, and yet…
