Shabbat Shalom and thanks for all the gefilte fish

As the High Holy Days approach, many look forward to the traditional Ashkenazi ‘gefilte fish;’ others (like many in my family) not so much.

It’s an acquired taste, to be sure, and the stories about Grandmas Fannie and/or Yetta keeping a carp in the bathtub in preparation for the coup de grace always seemed a little too real for my sensitive, suburban homeboy ears.

I found an alternative in this week’s issue: For yummy Moroccan style fish for Rosh Hashanah, check out David Suissa’s article about his mom and her recipes.

And Shabbat Shalom!
