    When I first gravitated toward writing about food and immigration to the United States as an ostensibly serious academic, colleagues asked me—and, frankly, I asked myself—the obvious question. Why food? Food perhaps lacked the gravitas and significance of subjects like political,...

  • Watch what happens when these non-Jews try Jewish food

    September 30, 2014 | 10:15 am

    Every year, Jews gather to celebrate the High Holidays: They blow the shofar, they fast, they ask for repentance, and of course, they eat. And every year, there’s someone new at the dinner table, tepidly prodding his or her gefilte fish, and assuring the cook with an unconvincing...

  • My family’s Karaite-style Passover

    April 4, 2012 | 10:43 am

    Never mind the gefilte fish and brisket, the mass-produced, cardboard-like matzah and the kosher-for-Passover wine. Instead, Passover seder at my parents’ Karaite Jewish home includes a mouth-watering menu of barbecued lamb chops, crisp homemade matzah, sweet raisin juice and chewy...

    How do you know it’s Spring?  The gefilte fish are running.  The news is full of stories, references and recipes to the iconic Passover food.

  • More cluck for your passover buck

    By Judy Zeidler

    April 5, 2011 | 6:16 pm

    I have always enjoyed researching and developing new dishes to serve during Passover, but have you ever heard of Mock Gefilte Fish? Because everyone loves chicken, I am constantly looking for new and different chicken dishes to prepare, and I find that each recipe has a story all its...

  • Shabbat Shalom and thanks for all the gefilte fish

    By JewishJournal.com

    September 7, 2007 | 6:43 pm


    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...

  • A sweet gefilte fish like his Polish grandma used to make

    By Judy Zeidler

    I've bought meat from the same kosher butcher shop on Pico Boulevard in West Los Angeles for many years. But it wasn't until recently that I asked G&K Kosher Meat owner Herschel Berengut, 58, about the Passover dishes he prepares at his to-go deli next door, Charlie's. His eyes lit...
  • PASSOVER: Prague’s Matzah Metamorphosis

    By Dinah Spritzer

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    An anonymous source breathes heavily on the other end of the receiver, softly intoning that the only way to get the goods is from an inside contact.

    The first time Tina Wasserman prepared gefilte fish for Passover, it smelled up her whole house. The fish was past its prime, but it wasn't spoiled, so "it didn't make my family sick," she said. But still, the experience was so horrifying that she didn't attempt to prepare gefilte...

  • Zen and the Art of Homemade Gefilte Fish

    By Donna Gordon Blankinship

    April 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I added a new experience to my Passover preparation last year. In addition to counting the haggadahs, practicing the Four Questions with my daughter, inviting guests, shopping and cleaning the house, I made gefilte fish from scratch for the first time ever.

    Neither my mother nor any...

  • Gramma Gene’s Gefilte Fish

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Passover is a special holiday for me and brings back many wonderful food memories. One of my favorites occurred many years ago, when I was invited to a Passover seder at the home of my husband-to-be. I still remember that evening, and especially the taste of the gefilte fish my...
