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


Where Have I Been in My Life???
Posted: October 17, 2013

It's 11:30 pm but I told myself to get back into the groove. I thank you patient readers and faithful users of the website. What has happened these past 6 months? As an official AARP member of the sandwich generation, I have been catching up on life.

My daughter Aviva graduated high school and I've gotten her settled in film school.

My mother's Alzheimer's has worsened and I spent every day between yontif that I wasn't cooking moving her into a safe, beautiful assisted living facility.

After 2 1/2 years without a real vacation, I took a few weeks off this summer. A rare opportunity for recharging coincided with a break in my catering schedule so I jumped on it. Two weeks on Washington's beautiful Hood Canal, another week in Marin County north of San Francisco was indulgent and necessary.

My siblings and their spouses all pitched in and revamped my mother's home for sale. I don't know if a work ethic is genetic but to the extent each of us had time, we compulsively cleaned, painted, and gardened until the house sparkled. It looks great.
