Not for nothing has Levana Kirschenbaum been affectionately nicknamed the Jewish Julia Child.

She was co-owner of the acclaimed eponymous Levana Restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and the pioneer in Kosher upscale dining. She is a cooking teacher and cookbook author, the diva of modern simple natural meals, and is entirely devoted to the busy health-oriented modern mom.
