The Jew and the Carrot Round Up – 3/5/12

Here are some great articles from The Jew and the Carrot you may have missed last week discussing the latest in Jews, food, and contemporary life. Thank you to Hazon intern, Alyssa Berkowitz, for compiling this week’s round up!

We’re looking for writers to feature on JCarrot in the upcoming weeks! Spring is coming, and we’d love to feature articles that get excited for the coming season. Also, if you have had any interesting food experiences or fun recipe ideas, we’d be interested in hearing your story! As always, we’re here to help you brainstorm topics if you’re interested in writing for us but not quite sure of a topic. We need writers for end of March into the beginning of April, so please propose topics to us soon! We realize that Passover is an exciting opportunity for JCarrot submissions, and because of it’s popularity, please send us proposals for Passover submissions by March 15th so we have a chance to review them and select writers.

In the past few weeks, we’ve featured some great articles. We featured an article by Ilan Caplan of American Jewish World Service on the most recent happenings of the Farm Bill, a recipe for vegan hamentaschen (great for Purim this week) by Rachel Harkham, and lastly an article by Persephone Rivka and Sophie Vener about the eco-village “sprouting” at Camp Newman.

Chag Purim Sameach! 

This Week’s Featured Articles

  • Uncommon Hamentaschen by Rachel Harkham- “As a devoted, dessert-first, dentally-challenged lover of sweets I have often been disappointed by the hamantaschen. This iconic Purim cookie seems to me like a baked good whose main concern is its shape.”
  • Something’s Sprouting at Kibbutz Yarok– “In permaculture, Bill Mollison advises all gardeners and farmers to live in a tent on their land for a year before they start their design for one reason: observation.”
