We are working on creations for the ice cream bar but I have put together a draft of the menu for the restaurant.  For the record, we will be kosher and dairy so there will be no meat, no shellfish,  We are looking for feedback.  Which items would you order, as long as the prices are appropriate?  Any suggestions?

We are setting up as a non-profit and need donations.  We will be focused on employing people with Special Needs! Please take a look at at our website http://www.deliciousspoonfuls.com and our gofundme account at https://www.gfundme.com/we-employ-people-with-special-needs

Pesach Kosher Dinner Menus

8 Jan

I am starting to get calls about catering seders for groups for the Passpver seder. This year (2013/ 5773) Passover begins on March 26th. I am able to prepare food in my client’s home or kosher commercial kitchen. The most requested dinner items have traditionally been turkey or brisket. This year I have have been hearing from people looking at options at a lower cost (also healthier) such as shicken or capon..
I would of course prepare the traditional Seder plates, sides such as tsimmes and potato kugel,appetizer such as as gefilte fish and desserts as well as traditional matzoh ball soup. I have not figured out pricing exactly but we are probably talking about $36/per person with 10 or more people.

Chicken Soup with Matzoh Balls..Traditional!!

12 Apr
matzo ball soup

matzo ball soup (Photo credit: derek7272)

Fill a small stock pot with water and add a bit of salt.  While this comes to a boil add chicken necks and backs (if you like not wasting the chicken) or some chicken thighs,  Once it comes to a boil, add 3 to 4 peeled and roughly chopped carrots, 2 turnips and 2 parssnips (also peeled and roughly chopped along with 2 ribs of celery. a large onion and few cloves of garlic.  allow to simmer for at lest two hours (covered or not).

The recipe on the package of matzoh meal lists 3 eggs, e/4 cup of matzoh meal and 1/4 tsp salt,  my rercipe is just a bit different.  Beat up the eggs in a small bowl, add the salt, water (1/2 an eggshell full for every 2 eggs) and some fresh chopped dill and or parsly.  Then add the matzoh meal.  When it is mixed, chill it in the fridge for an hour or more and the matzoh meal wuill have a chance to absorb the liquids.  At that time, with wet hands, make mrble walnut sized matzoh balls in your hands and drop them into the slowly boiling soup.  (If the soup is not boiling, the matzoh balls fall apart in the soup….yuck) Cover the soup and let it cook for another hour .  then serve with matzoh balls…

Tov Ta’am…yummy

As my friend Jeff Popper answered when asked what a Matzoh Ball was, he answered, the only edible part of the matzoh
