Among the specialties presented by the chefs at “Sweet and Savory Spectacular,” a tasting party that took place recently at the International Culinary School in Santa Monica, California, we found several dishes that we plan to prepare at home.The value of learning from restaurant chefs was emphasized by Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek in their new book, Secret Restaurant Recipes from the World’s Top Kosher Restaurants. “Restaurants give us an opportunity to try dishes we might not have thought to prepare on our own... Probably every time we eat out, we bring their influences back home to our tables.”
