Jewish Cooking Course – Menu B

Meat Soup with Matzo Balls

It is the most famous Jewish soup. My husband’s grandma makes meat soup with chicken or beef and a lot of vegetables and cooks it very slowly. This dish requires time. Related to matzo balls let’s discuss matzo a little bit. Its origin is connected to the Jewish exodus from Egypt. The pharaoh gave the Jews permission to leave Egypt. They had to act fast and had no time to raise dough so they prepared bread without leaven. Today’s matzo is made in large amounts. Its ingredients are only flour, water without salt. When we make the Matzo balls, we add many ginger and so the result is a majestic soup.

Main ingredients: beef meat, root vegetables, Matzo meal, ginger.

Honey Chicken with Dried Plum and Rice

This dish surely shows you how fantastic Jewish gastronomy is. A lot of sweet dishes that may taste even sweeter than what we are used to. As I am writing these sentences it has just come to my mind that this could be in connection with the sweet tooth of my husband and son.

Maybe this is encoded genetically?

Main ingredients: chicken, cinnamon, chilli, honey, dried plum and apricot and fruit brandy.


This the the most popular Jewish dessert in Hungary.

Everybody knows and love this and I can only talk about it at high level. It is a layer cake with four different fillings: poppy-seed, apple, walnut and plum jam. I think this list also shows, it is a unique dessert and of course one cube is enough because it is very rich. The making is not complicated but time-consuming. It is worth to surprise the family because loves this. Can we start?

Main ingredients: flour, egg, dairy-product, sugar, raisin, poppy-seed, walnut, apple, plum-jam.
