Jewish, Japanese, and Delicious

I am all too familiar with a story like Francesca Biller’s, who shares this week what it’s like to be Japanese and Jewish, especially where the kitchen is concerned. As an Italian-Jewish hybrid myself, I love exploring how to create mash-up combinations of classic Jewish food with Mediterranean flavors. Balsamic Apple Date Challah anyone?

Francesca-(Udon)

Franseca grew up with charoset and mandelbrodt served alongside chicken gyoza and udon noodles. What a lucky lady!

And we are lucky too, because she shared two of her family’s Japanese-Jewish mash-ups on the Jewish& diversity blog this week, including Chicken Udon Noodle Soup. Just when you thought chicken soup couldn’t get any better.

Shabbat Recipe Roundup: Chinese “Takeout”

Christmas is here, and Chinese restaurants are preparing for the Jews to take over. This week I’ve put together some Asian inspired dishes to grace your Shabbat table, and relieve the Chinese takeout industry.

To start, why not try this Jewish Turkey-Wonton Soup, which actually uses traditional kreplach as the wontons! It looks amazing.

You could also start with these Crisp Orange-Chicken Spring Rolls from Gourmet Kosher Cooking.

My husband and I love this recipe for Sticky Sesame Chicken Wings and we make them all the time! Even my brother who is a bit of a picky eater likes the recipe. This would go great with some perfectly cooked white or brown rice, and perhaps a slaw such as this Asian Slaw with Ginger-Dressing.

If you want to serve a more basic salad, why not dress it with this Carrot Ginger Dressing from The Kosher Foodies.

For dessert? Keep it simple and put out some sliced pineapple or orange wedges. Ah, brings back fond Chinese restaurant memories.

Shabbat Shalom, Happy Cooking, and Happy Holidays!
