You can say the same about any traditional jewish food.

Put a loaf of Benz's gefilte in the oven smothered in fresh garlic and cracked peppercorn and try it before you knock it...
I wouldn't call that way of preparing it a traditional jewish food...
Almost any, and I do  ;D. Don't get me started on chopped liver and kishke.

Will do and report back.
Make sure it's cooked long enough to get a nice crust on top.

Or just make them eat an entire jar of gefilte fish-with the jelly.


For the life of me I can't understand who buys that stuff.

My father :-[.

Takes it along whenever he goes on vacation and claims its better than restaurant food :-X.

It isn't a way of making cholent at all. It is a different food.

I'd say Dan's recipe should be heavy garlic powder all around and then peppercorn on top. Maybe some fresh garlic too but the heavy garlic powder gives it the crust, and use pam so it sticks well.

Never realized that eating catfood and stuffed colons was an ethnic thing, I thought it was a "we can't afford real food" thing. Do foodies also appreciate POW (prisoner of war) food? I've read about what people have eaten to survive harsh conditions, not sure why that would be memorialized.

Oh, I'll cook it until it's got a crust that goes all the way to the center. Hopefully it will taste like burnt toast.

Right, because a crust meant that it's necessarily bad. As in this crusty loaf of bread is just awful.

It was not a can't afford thing. It was more of a mix of regional foods.

Yes, a bias it is. Nothing rational.

It actually was partly a can't afford thing. Fish was stuffed with flour because fish was expensive, so you got Gefilte. Meat was the same-so you got kishka.
The above is definitely a part of the reason (of the main/whole reason) these foods came around.

Yes on the northern pike, but to answer your question

Or a mixture of matzo meal and fillers with some ground white fish, pike, mullet and more depending on the brand

My favorite is the "Shabbos Fish" brand in Crown Heights.
No fillers.

Some do and in Europe everyone did. Of course the homemade is much better and had less fillers etc.
