I WISH we were flying EL AL! I've never felt as safe on a plane as flying on EL AL and the food is excellent.

Plane Food for a LOOONG Flight--Frozen pastrami?

We fly internationally at least once a year, but this is the first time to South Africa. I had read a couple of blogs regarding this flight (the only non stop flight from the US to Johannesburg) and read comments about 2 small meals and snacks of oreo cookies or something like a hot pocket. Both of those people were flying business class. I called the airline and that was confirmed. So, I just wanted to make sure we had enough food...especially if one of us isn't able to sleep well.

Plane Food for a LOOONG Flight--Frozen pastrami?

Ha! You must be a fan of Katz's, too! What can I say...we went to NYC for the weekend and brought a cooler which we filled with goodies from Russ and Daughter's and waaay too much pastrami from Katz's. We'll steam the pastrami since it looks like it will not be joining us on our trip to South Africa.

I was surprised, too! But I called the airline to confirm. Only 2 meals and a snack of half sandwich if you request it. And that's in business class!

I can't remember which airport we were in (Pgh?) but there was a California pizza kitchen that was boxing whole pizzas for carryon. A lot of people were bringing them on the plane and I remember wishing I had, too.

Thank you! I'm excited about the trip, but am always nervous about flying. 16 hour flight and then a tiny plane with 10 seats. UGH!

Plane Food for a LOOONG Flight--Frozen pastrami?

I had read reviews about this flight and did call up the airline and indeed it is just 2 meals. The "snacks" will be half sandwiches if requested. Other people who have taken the flight have noted that it was not a lot of food for such a long flight.

I'm hearing everyone regarding the pastrami! Believe me the ticket was very expensive whether you were flying biz or coach! I certainly don't want to ruin anyone's flight because of the aroma. So I won't bring the pastrami.

Do you think it will be a problem since the meat will be cold not warmed up as we would usually eat it?

Plane Food for a LOOONG Flight--Frozen pastrami?

The flight leaves at 11 AM and lunch is served right after takeoff. It seems like a long stretch not to have something to eat in the evening, before we (try to) sleep.

Plane Food for a LOOONG Flight--Frozen pastrami?

We're flying to South Africa. The good news is that it is non stop, the bad news is that it is a 15 hour flight. The surprising news is that only two meals are served; lunch on takeoff and breakfast an hour before landing. This was pretty surprising to me, especially since it is such a long flight and we're going business class.

I want to take snacks on board. We have pastrami(from Katz's!) that is cooked and sliced that we vacuum sealed and froze. What do you think about taking it on board along with rye bread and mustard? Since it is frozen, I wouldn't need ice packs. Would it be "safe" to let it defrost at room temperature?

Thanks for input.

Paris Bistro in Chestnut Hill opening

We went last night and really enjoyed it. We ordered a lot...oysters, duck confit salad, mussels with frites (excellent). Wonderful Beef ribs and the special cote de bouef. The service was very attentive and the chef came by to say hello. A very nice addition to Chestnut Hill. We love Paris (France) and this has the feel of a brasserie. Looking forward to the jazz club and trying the burger which looked fantastic. We love Heirloom and are happy that Chef Paris has given us another fine place in our neighborhood.

Is Jewish Cuisine a Subset of American?

If any of you visit Philly, consider dining at Zahav. It is Israeli/Middle Eastern food that shows influences of different kinds of Jewish cuisines. Very creative and always wonderful.

Is Jewish Cuisine a Subset of American?

At Passover it is fun to have more than one charoset. I love trying Sephardic recipes...they always seem more "exotic" than what I grew up with.

Best (affordable) hotel breakfast in Jerusalem?

The Inbal hotel had the most amazing breakfast buffet I've ever experienced. We still talk about it. It was included in our room rate.

I also have to say that Shabbat dinner was spectacular at the Inbal.

Is Jewish Cuisine a Subset of American?

One of my favorite cookbooks is "Jewish Cooking in America". It has great recipe and includes lots of fascinating information about the history of Jewish cooking.

I'm Jewish and loved reading about the history of my people through food. One thing is certain....we love to eat and our holidays and simchas (celebrations) food is extremely important and plentiful.

Winter Storm--Cooking without electricity

Over 300,000 homes are still without power in my area. Fortunately we only lost electricity for 24 hours.

Since our gas stove was still working, I made dried mushroom risotto for dinner. It was easy...boxed chicken broth, rice, onion, dried mushrooms, seasoning, white wine and parmesan cheese.

Do you have any suggestions for stove top cooking during a power outage? Preferably using items just from the pantry.
