Mixing Bowl: Olive Season in Israel; Famous Vegans; Perfect Shabbat Chicken

After our Q & A earlier this week with Matisyahu, we’re thrilled to read the Village Voice headline: “Meatless Moguls: Bill Clinton, Russell Simmons, and Steve Wynn Among the Planet’s ‘Power Vegans’.”

And for those who like meat, but prefer their veggies, New York magazine announces “Here Come the Vegivores” in an article that explores restaurants taking on Meatless Mondays.

Ha’aretz asks Israel’s most famed food critic, Daniel Rogov, “Can fleeting culinary trends help Israel find its staple cuisine?”

Café Liz reminds us it is olive harvest season in Israel and shares a recipe of how to cure olives at home.

The Food Section gives us the perfect way to roast a chicken (think shabbos dinner) from Rozanne Gold’s newly released cookbook “Radically Simple.”
