    Lesson from the master: Chicken soup
    Chicken soup is de rigueur at Passover. And with Passover looming, I called Papa. His chicken soup is a lot like my chicken soup, only better. He was happy to spill. "It's very simple," he enthused. "It's the Jewish way from Eastern Europe with all...
  • Cannes Film Review: 'That Lovely Girl'

    Incest continues to be inexplicably popular arthouse fodder, with Keren Yedaya's "That Lovely Girl" prolonging the trend. A hothouse story of a father-daughter's abusive (in all senses) relationship includes collateral issues such as codependency, self-...

  • The glories of spring alone are clear evidence that the world is not about to end!

    Q: I love your column. You're so open, honest and straightforward with your answers. I'm 61 (a widow for 35 years) and was raised Catholic. I watch the news each night and see the weather that's occurring in the U.S., people rioting, etc. I'm scared to...

    Phil Vettel recommends: Passover dining
    Passover begins at sundown Monday, and of course many of Chicago's restaurants are eager to help. Here are a few options; unless noted otherwise, special dinners are available Monday and Tuesday. Di Pescara: Seder plate and traditional dinner; kosher...

    Wine shines during Easter, Passover
    From the point of view of religion, this is wine drinking's annual high-water mark. Easter isn't Easter without its dinner of lamb or ham and their wines; Passover isn't Pesach without the mandated four cups of wine during the Seder and then more...
