About Tori Avey

Thanks for stopping by! I am fascinated by the story behind the food – why we eat what we eat, how the foods of different cultures have evolved, and how yesterday’s food can inspire us in the kitchen today. Read more...

    When I lived in Fort lauderdaie, I ate at alot of Jewish delisand became fond of many sweets and savory dishes. This has been many years ago.

    I miss smoked fish the most, I’m living in S. Carolina and they never heard of smoked white fish or kippered salmon here. Do I miss it.

    I love black and white cookies! Yummy! How exciting to think of possibly winning a basket of goodies from New York. I have never been there, and would love a taste of some famous N.Y. goodies.

    Hi Tori,
    My name is Pauline, and I live in the Philippines. I lovr Zabar’s so much that i ended up going there every single day to for months for their soups and pastries.. I love their cheese selection too.

    I left New York now, and i’m back here in the Philippines. My mother, who now lives in long Island for 11 years have never tried Zabar’s! She has been in and out of the hospital lately from a hand injury and a possible breat tumor. It would mean a lot to me if you could send the Zabar’s gift basket to her. Chocolate rugelach have always made our day. the white and black cookies I always split when I was babysitting a boy who goes to Calhoun ( i get the black black side, he didn’t like it for some reason). Thank you so much for your time!
