About this blog:


schmaltz (Photo credit: pinprick)

Schmaltz is Yiddish for chicken fat. This fat was used in Jewish cooking because unlike butter (milk) or lard (pig) it was kosher for cooking all kinds of meat. Sounds good, right? I don’t use it to cook either. My attempting-to-not-eat-so-much-high-calorie-food-mostly-vegetarian diet gets in the way of that.

What I’m trying to do is create delicious, healthy, and schmaltzy food. However, to make it healthy, I won’t be frying everything in chicken fat, though I’m sure it would make anything taste amazing.

Likes and Dislikes:

Obviously, I cook food that I like. So, if you’re looking at my food blog, you should probably be aware of the  things that I like and dislike. My likes (in terms of food) include but are not limited to: fruit, coffee, vegetables, oatmeal, avocado, sweet, chocolate, bitter, sour, lemon, salty, beans, savory, lentils, whole grain, tomato and spicy. My dislikes include: peppers (not chili peppers, but the mild ones you find at the store), chai (I just can’t seem to develop a taste for it), and meat (actually, I like meat, but I am (mostly) vegetarian).

About me:

I am student living in Boston. I am a pescetarian with a passion for food and cooking. I also enjoy exploring, getting lost, blues music, and hiking.
