While serving a congregation in South Africa, I became acquainted with a fish called snoek, which actually has no equivalent in North America. However, I have found that smoked Lake Superior whitefish is an excellent substitute .This is an excellent brunch dish.
I can hardly believe that I am including a meatloaf recipe in this online cookbook. Going all the way back to my childhood, I hardly ever enjoyed meatloaf. It was always too dry or simply too boring for my taste.
The thrifty Italian Jewish cook wasted no part of the chicken. And it’s easy for us to buy inexpensive giblets for this rich and delectable risotto.
Some recipes, although not actually Jewish, just seem that way, probably because they are the favorite of so many traditional cooks. This recipe is an especially good example. It is often served at a brunch or the “break-the-fast” at the end of the Jewish Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) It is pretty enough to serve on a festive occasion.
This is an easier and much lighter version of a traditional Jewish recipe. The use of wonton wrappers (squares) gives these kreplach a much airier texture. Rather than tasting mostly dough, which more often than not is pretty heavy, the taste and texture is primarily that of the filling.
