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


Dennis Warshal Cooks Kosher for Leah
Posted: December 23, 2012

It's year end, and what a year it has been. Business is, thank G-d, busy and busier. My only regret is not having had as much time to cook, post, write and make videos. There is always next year; G-d willing! I am planning a schedule and hope to stick with it. What inspires me? Those who try my recipes and let me know how things turn out.

I'm thrilled to know that Dennis Warshal has begun a new Chanukah tradition at his home; Spring Rolls! He has shared some photos and I'm honored to show them here. Dennis is a sculptor, custom florist and event ambiance designer. And, apparently, food stylist.

It's Chanukah! Time to Order for Passover!
Posted: December 4, 2012

Yes, I'm scrambling....weddings out to June already on the books. I need to post for for my secret ingredient to successful everything fried coming this week! I notice in my inbox that I have the order guide for Passover. Must be Chanukah, must be December, I must be nuts.

Further in my inbox I find images of one of the Best New Products at Kosherfest. This image of Dyana Furmansky standing by her product "Matzolah" - yep, billed as "The Trail Mix of the Exodus!" makes me laugh. This is seriously good food despite all the whacky fun Foodman's team is having marketing.

You'll want to fill your shelves at Passover with this item. It's gourmet granola made with matzoh sans the Birkenstock's. I'm thinking Matzolah brittle, Matzolah turtles, Matzolah crisp, or Matzohlah on top of ice cream. And, I suppose there isn't a halacha against eating it the rest of the year. I'm one of the lucky ones to have my own personal can NOW. Now, as in as I browse the order guide for Passover.....that is due this month!
