Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, a two-day celebration that begins in early autumn on the first day of Tishrei (the seventh month of the Jewish calendar). Rosh Hashanah begins the High Holy Days which end ten days later with Yom Kippur. It is a time for introspection, looking back at the mistakes of the previous year and planning changes to make in the new year.
During the holiday, it is customary to refrain from bitter, sour and tart foods, and to eat foods that symbolize hopes for a sweet, pleasant year ahead. Keep reading to learn more about the traditional foods of Rosh Hashanah. Continue reading →
Mollie Stone’s will be hosting our very first series of pop-up lunches around the Bay Area at our different locations. Find Mollie’s Traveling Chefs at their pop-up tents outdoors firing up the grill this summer! See the current schedule above. We’ll be serving up delicious grilled sandwiches like Pesto Portobello Mushroom, Smokey BBQ Aioli Chicken Breast, Roasted Red Pepper Honey Aioli Tri-Tip and more. If you’re not a fan of sandwiches, we’ll also be offering these gourmet proteins as plates.
After browsing through the cookbook brimming with more than 100 drool-worthy ice cream recipes, we asked Jeni if she would let us share one of her most popular recipes: Salty Caramel Ice Cream.
Even though there is the tricky step of dry-burning sugar to make the caramel, Jeni’s recipe is written with very clear instructions that ensure a good result at home. We can’t wait to make this, then taste it side-by-side with a store-bought pint of Jeni’s Salty Caramel (available at Mollie Stone’s).
SALTY CARAMEL ICE CREAM
Excerped from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home by Jeni Britton Bauer (Artisan Books). Copyright 2011.
It was at a French bakery where I worked throughout high school and college that I first heard of salted caramel, called “salty” caramel by a chef in his thick French accent. For years it has been the most popular flavor of ice cream in our stores, accounting for more than 20 percent of sales, and we still make it the way we always have, one batch at a time, the sugar hand-stirred in a pan over a hot burner. The reward: no better flavor in the world.

Awareness of one’s own health is important. Eating healthy and exercising enough are not enough! Steps must be taken to make sure the body is in proper working order. Just as one would take their car to the mechanic when it “just doesn’t sound right” or “doesn’t drive right,” one must also “listen” to the body’s signals of possible problems. Health Screening by Heart Watch IV is an excellent beginning, and will be at Mollie Stone’s in January. Keep reading for more information about these screenings. Continue reading →
