I’ll never look at a food magazine article the same way again. You know how you open up a summer issue of a food magazine and admire the lovely pictures of seasonal ingredients? Well that article wasn’t written and photographed when said ingredients were in season and plentiful.
This goes a hundred times for Pesach (Passover) food articles. I was in the grocery store frantically buying more potato starch, watching people happily anticipate the start of Purim shopping. And when all I wanted to do was bake fancy Purim cookies, I was putting the finishing touches on my pesach cookies.
I’m not complaining though. The end results of my recipe testing were fantastic (let’s not discuss my near breakdown after a(nother) failed attempt at Passover muffins…). Want to see them?
Well, firstly, there’s a couple of my recipes in this month’s Joy of Kosher Magazine. I’m featured in their Dinner Tonight column, along with some really delicious Pesach food. This was my first experience having a professional food stylist and food photographer capture my recipes, and I have to say it was a treat compared with pressuring myself to get “that perfect shot” for the magazine! On the other hand, it was interesting to see how different the food stylist’s version of my recipes were compared with my own. It was in interesting lesson though, that people will always interpret my recipes slightly differently.
Not only are those my flour-less fudge cookies on the cover, but that’s my picture!
My next feature (quite an exciting week, I must say!) is in Ami’s Whisk Magazine. I present two amazing cookie recipes that totally didn’t taste like Passover cookies. Of you are gluten free, you should really get your hands on a copy of this magazine and try my cookies!
Make sure to pick up a copy of Ami to get the recipe for these amazing (no-flour!) chocolate almond tuiles! Plus, they’re gluten free!
My last Passover magazine feature is going to be in an upcoming Whisk Passover Recipe supplement. This was also photographed by a professional, and I’m excited to see what they came up with!
If you’ve seen or tried any of the recipes I mentioned, please let me know what you think! Pesach cooking is such a challenge and I’m excited to be a part of the solution!
I have another amazing soup recipe to share with you soon, so stay tuned! -Miriam
