Parsley is no longer just that nasty curly thing on the Passover table.
Parsley is no longer just that nasty curly thing on the Passover table. We now have easy supermarket access to the delicious Italian flat-leaf parsley which I like to remind my pasta class students is a “cooling herb.” Cheese is taboo on top of spicy pasta or seafood pasta, but parsley is more than welcome as it cools the flavors, creating a perfect palatable balance. Beyond its culinary wonders, parsley:
has diuretic properties.
is high in iron.
helps to flush out the glandular system.
contains myristicin, a chemical known for preventing tumors. (in fact, the National Cancer Institute includes parsely in a specialized group of vegetables with high anti-cancer activity.)
The kugel was amazing. My guests couldn’t believe it was non-dairy! Yum! I also made your roasted vegetables recipes. It was a great combination. So easy beautiful and tasted great. Thank you for helping me to make a wonderful meal for family and friends. L’Shana Tova.
Elana, your classes and the recipes I’ve learned have gotten me through the holidays. I cooked the brisket with some English accoutrements (minty peas, ginger carrots and Yorkshire pudding) on Christmas day, along with the pumpkin pie. On New Years I cooked your Chicken Tagine with Couscous, and your Blackberry Chiantishire dessert. Needless to say there was some great spiel over the food cooked and I’ve got you to thank for it. See you in class!
I love love love being in your classes!! You are bringing so much joy to so many people – and families!! Thank you.

Once again we prepared and ate a fabulous meal with our chef/instructor Elana Horwich! I’ve been to several classes and every single one has been outstanding – food, company and ambiance.
The Roasted Tomato on Multi-grain Toast with Raw Honey and Fresh Basil was an unexpected surprise!! I loved the combination of the sweet raw honey with the savory roasted tomato. I’ve made it several times already, and everyone loves it as much as I do!
Elana, thank you. The food was scrumptious and the spiels were terrific. I hope I can entice my children to attend one of your dinners.
I loved the class tonight and can’t wait to make the things we made tonight (yummm!) for my family.
Thank you for a most beautiful and delicious lunch. Elana is an excellent chef. It was beautifully presented and delicious.
I want to thank you so much for such a fabulous job at my house! I
know the circumstances weren’t perfect, but Elana really pulled it off!
Elana is one talented girl!!! Looking forward to more fun dinners with
