Cook the Book: 'Joy of Kosher' by Jamie Geller

I grew up in a non observant Jewish home, but had some friends who kept kosher. I remember having dinner at a friend's house and being confused by the fact that they had schmaltz on the table instead of butter for bread, and that they wouldn't let you put cheese on a burger.

In the monkey bread recipe, the importance of bread flour for texture is emphasized. I'm often confused about which flour to use, I'd love to hear a description of the difference in texture obtained with bread flour v. all-purpose.

Miami Recommendations?

I'm going to Miami next month for the first time. I'd love any good restaurant recommendations. Not necessarily high-end, just places to go for an authentic Miami experience for breakfast/lunch/dinner. We'll be there for 3 days. One person is a vegetarian but not fussy (he's okay with having a salad/side dish/dessert). Also any bakery/food shops/etc recommendations are welcome.
Thanks!
