Short Ribs Are Back

This lowly cut of beef, once popular for Jewish holiday meals in Eastern Europe, takes on the flavors of Morocco

In the “old country,” when people wanted something special for Friday night or holidays, they braised flanken, what many of us now call short ribs. They had no “brisket” as we know it—what we call brisket, now a staple for Jewish holiday meals, is an American cut of beef. In Europe, their cut was smaller, cheaper, fattier, and less uniform as it was difficult to saw around the bones.

From sweet black mission figs to the more delicate Adriatic and Kadota varieties, we're here to fulfill your fig fancy.


If you’re wondering how to eat a fig, you’ve come to the right address. I’m somewhat obsessed with figs, and am known to some of my friends and neighbors as Princess Fig, which obviously gives me the highest fig-titious certification that exists in the fruit universe.

This quinoa salad combines Andean grains with Asian fruit to make a colorful vegan medley for the holiday


On my most recent visit to San Francisco, I ate a symphony of persimmons. At Chez Panisse, Alice Waters’ famed shrine to local food in Berkeley, the bright-orange fruit was shaved paper-thin over salads, pureed with sugar, eggs, and cream to make the perfect persimmon pudding, and served whole in a copper bowl to be easily plucked for a fresh and delicious dessert. At Hardwater, a Bourbon bar opened by chef Charles Phan of The Slanted Door fame, I ate crispy Brussels sprouts coated with a persimmon and mustard jam. While at Greens Restaurant, a wonderful vegetarian eatery started by Jewish chef and now cookbook author Deborah Madison, I ate the best quinoa salad I have ever tasted, served with—you got it—persimmons.
