Simple and


fter a season of
heavy eating,
with many of
us splurging on party and
vacation grub, it's time to
get back to reality with
dishes that are both simple
and healthily fresh.
First up: savory Turkish
meatballs made with lamb
(or beef if you prefer),
garlic and a hint of mint.
Serve them drizzled with
tahini-lemon sauce and with fresh pita.



Add a quick and healthy
Israeli chopped salad that's
bright with lemon and sumac
and still another vegetable side
dish — chatzilim (eggplant in
Hebrew) — a chopped eggplant
salad that's typically served as
an appetizer.
I like it with lamb or served
over freshly cooked rice — white
or brown. Add a little cumin
and tahini (sesame seed paste)
to the chatzilim, and you have a
chunky version of baba ganoush. ❑

A compelling brand new play about a Jewish scullery maid trapped in Edward III's castle
in 1360. The Black Plague has ironically given her access to a terrible secret about her father
and to the King, putting her on a collision course with history! Don't miss it!
