Jewish Passover Meal Foods

Passover is a grand Jewish festival that is celebrated over seven to eight days where a host of rich traditional foods are cooked. Families celebrate the ritual of serving the Sedar family meal on the initial two nights of the festivities. Some of the traditional Passover food is Matzoh, Maror, Beitzah and Charoses. There is the ritual of placing three unleavened matzohs within a napkin that is said to represent the hurriedness with which Israelites left Egypt. The Seder service generally serves two matzohs. Maror is a traditional dish that is generally composed of herbs. It is a bitter dish that contains horseradish or romaine lettuce. The bitterness of the dish is said to symbolize the harshness of slavery.

Charoses is a traditional Passover food that contains ingredients like apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine. Charoses is prepared as a paste that imitates the brick and mortar made by the toiling Jews for the Pharaoh. Beitzah is a roasted egg fish that represents life in all its beauty and the spirit of survival. A Passover vegetable dish is the Karpas and is generally made of parsley or celery. This vegetable dish is generally served with salted water in a basin. The dish Karpas signifies hope and salvation. Wine and Zeroah are some of the other traditional foods. Zeroah is a portion of roasted lamb shankbone. Four glasses of wine are consumed as a four-fold assurance of salvation. Some of popular soups served during the Passover festival are chicken soup and cream of carrots soup.

Authentic fried chicken that doesn’t include soaking in buttermilk?!

Dear Shaul’s,
How do you make an authentic fried chicken that doesn’t include soaking in buttermilk?
Barry, Brooklyn NY
We all love our fried chicken – the crisp coated outside, and the juicy tenderness of the chicken inside. In fact, if we try hard enough we can just smell it frying. At least I can. Can’t wait to do some finger lickin’.
You have an excellent question! And you are so right, Barry — when a kosher cook goes searching for authentic southern fried chicken recipes, we hit a MAJOR stumbling block: almost all of them call for dipping the chicken in buttermilk. Such a no-go in a kosher home!
Now, we agree that this authentic method is not an option, but no one wants to compromise on taste. So it’s up to clever kosher cooks to come up with a solution.
It took some trial and error, but I developed a recipe that proves you do not need buttermilk at all. Soy milk and vinegar do the trick! It’s real down home country cooking with a kosher twist! What do y’all think Paula Deen would say?
This chicken is so delicious and special it could even be great for a Shabbos meal! Keep the questions coming — we all have a lot to learn!
