About

Shalom!

I’m Chava Mazal of Almost Kosher  and I will be sharing with you some of my favorite memories, my thoughts, and my recipes.  I was born and partly raised in the Bay Area of California where most of my family still resides.  There, I learned to appreciate the myriad of ethnic flavors of the human experience. It was also there that the seed of curiosity was planted which has helped me to grow my passion for learning all about the diaspora of Jewish experience.

I am joined by my lovely husband who took many of the photos for the blog in the early days and is now teaching me how to do the photography.  He continues to take most of our travel pictures.

About “Almost Kosher”

Our blog name started out as a tongue-in-cheek reference to my status in the Jewish community as a convert.  Later, I tried to adapt my recipes to be kosher-style.  These days…it’s a work in progress!
