“About once in every couple of weeks, perhaps more often than that, someone asks me for a recipe for some dish or another that I’ve served at one time or another on some Shabbos table or another at some point in my married life. I’m not really sure why. I don’t consider myself to be any kind of culinary genius, although I have always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. Also, for a year or two back at my real home in Jerusalem I ran a small, home-based catering business. Also, this past year, I have hosted something like 1,000 guests for Shabbos – for the second year in a row. Also, we’ve been having guests for Shabbos meals on average I would say about 45 weeks out of the year each of the almost 5 years since the week after the week after our Sheva Brachos. Not to mention the fact that I’ve run about 20 challah baking/gourmet cooking workshops out of my house over the past 2 years… I guess that does add up to a lot of cooking…”
