Bring the holidays home with these French, Spanish and Greek recipes

We’ve been doing a lot of reminiscing, sitting at the kitchen table after supper, like three old crones – even though my sons are just 16 and 22 – recalling holidays. ‘Remember when!’ has become a common exclamation since we’ve replaced going on holiday with recollected fragments from past ones. ‘Remember when we went to Paris, and I could see the Eiffel Tower from our hotel room!’ Yes, and I remember when I sat with my then six-year-old, enchanted as the tower lit up for the evening, and we picnicked on baguette, cheese, rillettes and jus de pommes.

Food chat: How to extend the life of marble rye, or any bread

The Washington Post Food staff recently fielded questions about all things edible. Here are edited excerpts. Q: I bought a delicious half-loaf of marble rye at an upscale deli. The bread definitely was fresh; I had a slice as soon as I got home. (The deli sliced it for me.) But after maybe 5 days, it gave off a moldy smell and a day or two later, the mold was clearly visible. I read here in a chat that bread should not be refrigerated, so the marble rye sat in its plastic bag on the counter. Could I have done something to keep it fresh longer? Does marble rye go bad sooner than other breads? Could the problem be the way it was displayed at the deli - unwrapped, on a wooden shelf shared with other breads - or the slicer? Thanks for your thoughts! P.S.: it's possible I bought it because of Seinfeld's marble rye episode.

Growing up Jewish meant challah! On Friday nights and special occasions, it was always one of the tastiest traditions — nothing compares to the beautifully braided shape, the shiny crust, and the soft, squishy texture.

But then I tried this easy recipe, and now I'm back to ripping off pieces of challah and making next-day French toast — that is if there's any left over!
