More About Leah ~ Blog Posts

We are consistently voted "The Best Kosher Caterer" by local JTNews readers. Since my Orthodox conversion 18 years ago, I am dedicated to elevating the expectations consumers have about kosher food. The community has been supportive of my catering service in a way that goes beyond business as usual.

It is my good fortune to be from Seattle, a city renown for its foodies and eclectic social conscience. Within this Jewish community, we have a long-standing Ashkenazi and Separdi blend of food and ritual. I learn from some of the best Jewish mothers in the city ~ young and old! Through the pages of this website and over time, I look forward to expanding my own learning of the foods Jews eat; classic and trendy, vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free and dairy free.....and, all kosher.

Feeding a community

All aspects of Jewish life are expressed with food, both traditional and trendy. Kashrut adds layers of holiness and meaning. Join me in a community of Jewish cooks who are excited to share their regional specialties and global perspectives on food in a Jewish context. Become a Supporting Member ~ its' FREE!

May we all be blessed for the love we share through food ~ Leah


Benoit Daures ~ The French Guy
Posted: November 30, 2010

What can I say about Benoit and Leah's Bakery and Catering? Could it even exist without all the long hours and bickering we put into the endeavor? I owe Benoit much for all his coaching and prodding and knife sharpening and running around. His dedication and fabulous customer service made him the face of Leah's Catering. Most people still say to me, "Oh, you're Leah".

Judith Gamoran ~ My Adopted Jewish Mother
Posted: November 29, 2010

The week my daughter Aviva was born, Judith Gamoran arrived in Seattle with her newly retired husband Rabbi Hillel Gamoran. I don't know which event has the biggest impact on my life; giving birth to my daughter or meeting Judith. Missing the welcome-to-town party as a guest of the University of Washington Jewish Studies contingent, I met the Gamorans for the first time at my Shabbat table. This is the beginning of the Leah's Bakery journey. Judith took a bite of my homemade challah and said, "you should sell this".

Chami Gross ~ My Foodie Rebbe

Years ago I auctioned off a "Hawaiian Dinner" for a half dozen couples. My friend Chami, the original foodie in the community, made her gorgeous ice bowl.
