Bulgarian Bird of Paradise Bread - Khliab Raiska Ptitsa - is a yeast bread that gets its name from the decorative placement of cheese, ham, olives and red pepper on the top. If you like a thick slice of cheese as I do, the bread will have a sunken middle, which is OK. But the rising dough will be better able to support thin slices of cheese and ham so the entire top is puffed up. Here's a larger picture of Bird of Paradise Bread. Makes 10-12 servings of Bird of Paradise Bread
, I decided to modify the recipe by using most of the same ingredients, but making it a baked dish rather than a tagine.
Fred Bernstein shared with me this recipe from his mother, Mildred Bernstein, who was a much-loved caterer in Charleston, South Carolina. She and her partner, Minnie Weinberg, were famous for their babkas and other baked goods. This rich yeast dough is rolled around a filling of cinnamon-scented sugar, pecans and currants to create a pastry that looks like a snail, thus the name, schnecken, the German word for snail. Plan ahead because this dough has to be prepared the night before and refrigerated. Note: Recipes in Marcie Cohen Ferris’s book Matzoh Ball Gumbo were compiled from a diverse mix of Jewish Southerners who have blended religion and region through home cooking.

Its sweet note of honey and its aromatic cumin seeds give this salad a Moorish character. The sharp, nutty manchego cheese shavings add another taste of Spain. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes, plus 1 hour of salting time. Notes: Salting the sliced carrots makes them release their liquid, so it doesn't dilute the vibrant vinaigrette; salting also makes the carrots slightly tender. Toasting and grinding whole cumin seeds tempers the bitter overtones of raw cumin. Manchego, a firm sheep's-milk cheese from Spain, is available at gourmet, specialty, and Whole Foods stores. Use one with a good, strong flavor (ask for a taste before you buy it).

When I was in Altamura, in Puglia, I worked with a family of bakers who all lived in the same big house. Each part of the family had its own living-room and kitchen. I went back home with them one day and four different families were cooking four different meals ? it was very surreal. This pea soup was one of the dishes being made. And it's so simple ? just four ingredients and 15 minutes simmering is all it takes. I've only ever made this soup with freshly podded peas, but frozen peas work well too. If I'm using fresh peas, what I like to do to make the soup even more tasty is to boil up the stock with the shells of the peas. You can do this while you're frying the onions. Then you can strain the stock onto your onions and peas when they're ready and fill the pan up again with water to boil your spaghetti while the soup simmers.
