I’m a convert to Judaism and my family’s resident chef. My blog explores the history of Jewish cuisine as well as other historical and anthropological culinary topics. I am fascinated by the story behind the food– why we eat what we eat, how cultural foods have evolved, and how yesterday’s food can inspire us in the kitchen today. I also post free recipes that include step-by-step photos. It’s all about food here, and everybody is welcome!

Where’s the Beef?
During Lent, the observance of the liturgical year that lasts 40 days beginning on Ash Wednesday (February 22) to Easter Sunday (April 8), millions will give up meat as a form of penitence. Yard House, with 35 locations across the United States, offers observers an alternative to beef and poultry with its vegetarian menu made with gardein™, a brand of healthy plant-based foods with the taste and texture of premium lean meat.
“It’s been a tradition by many to refrain from eating meat during Lent,” says Carlito Jocson, executive chef and partner of Yard House Restaurants. “Those who enjoy the taste and texture of a burger or chicken can still satisfy their cravings with our gardein™ menu, which contains no meat, fish, poultry, shellfish or products derived from these sources. It’s a nice alternative that doesn’t compromise taste.”
Yard House, which has featured gardein™ for the past two years, offers its vegetarian menu for lunch and dinner. Some gardein™ selections are also available during happy hour and late-night happy hour. Yard House, with 35 locations across the United States, is open daily from 11am. To locate the Yard House nearest you, call 800.336.5336 or visit online at www.yardhouse.com. For more information on gardein™ go to www.gardein.com.
