Scenes from a Jewish Deli

A lovely brunch was had this weekend at the Ashkenaz Deli. For quite some time, the B-man has strived to expand my horizons/vocabulary in regards to Jewish food....Matzo Ball Soup was this outing's lesson, and all I can say is Oy!

We ordered and lugged what had to be a 10-lb bag of food home, then I was quickly shooed out of the kitchen so Bosco could assemble our "feast." To my horror, sitting next to a very tasty looking pastrami on rye, pickle and slaw was what could only be described as a gigantic hairball floating in pan drippings!

Part of these little "experiments" in the cuisine of The Chosen People is to prevent a major faux pas when I meet the infamous bubbe. Her delightful grandson has yet again failed to find a nice Jewish girl and if this point cannot be underlined by the spewing of her homecooking back onto my plate, so much the better!

Apparently, the "matzo ball" is an attempt at making matzo more edible by adding eggs and turning it into a dumpling.....if this is the "more edible" version, I'd hate to see what the less edible options were!

Suffice to say, I managed to drain both bowl and ball (the broth was quite tasty!) and will gladly go back to bagels-n-schmear until the next culinary adventure arises....next up? KUGEL!
