Chef Eldad Shem Tov, who trained with some of Europe’s best chefs, is trying to bring Israelis inventive upscale culinary options like never before. But will his Jaffa-based food experiment survive? Haaretz reports.

New York Times Op-Ed page connects Denmark’s blazing innovation in food and new green technologies. René Redzepi, the chef at Copenhagen-based Noma, one of the world’s best restaurants, is married to Jewish woman.

Overwhelmed by the profusion of cookbooks and food books? Leah Koenig shares her picks for the essential Jewish cookbooks at Saveur.com and Serious Eats Food Labs posts on their required reading.

Food and Wine explains how to make matzo at home.
