I received the following text from my roommate on Rosh Hashanah: “Is this the holiday where you eat and drink wine or fast? If it’s the former, I’m in, if it’s the latter, you’re on your own.” That got me thinking a bit about Jewish holidays. It’s either feast (Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah, Passover, Sukkot) or fast (Tish B’Av, Yom Kippur). Or fast and then eat a huge meal. Either way, food is the center of most celebrations.
What did y’all have at your break fast last week? Ours wouldn’t be the same without Bubbe’s potato kugel. With it’s crispy top and fluffy base, no wonder this was a break fast staple. When it came time to recreate Bubbe’s famous kugel, I took the traditional onions and caramelized them for extra sweetness, and added Sriracha for heat! Oh boy did I!
