What’s the neatest thing you’ve got made thus far this yr? The matzah ball soup I made for Rosh Hashanah this yr was spectacular. My husband, Andrew, comes from Jewish background, and his dad who tried the soup mentioned “it’s the finest matzah ball soup [he] ever had!” My secret ingredient is a splash of fish sauce. Sure, it’s not a typical ingredient in Jewish meals, but it surely immediately provides a depth to my selfmade rooster bone broth!

Describe your most spectacular kitchen catastrophe. Oh, there are various episodes of kitchen catastrophe! My most up-to-date one was my try and make dumplings with tofu as a substitute of floor meat. I wished to make [the] dumplings [a] little wholesome, however the ultimate product was steamed mush. The feel was terrible, and there was no taste in any respect. I served it for dinner in any case, however even my four-year-old, who’s the best eater, didn’t wish to have the second chew!

Scorching udon noodle is one other favourite 🙂

By some means I at all times appear to neglect to place it on, and by the point I keep in mind it, I already made a stain on my white shirt, so why would I attempt to put it on at that time?!

What’s your favourite food-related scene in a film? My final favourite meals scene is from the timeless masterpiece, The Godfather, the place Clemenza gives [Michael] his tomato sauce how-to. It’s my favourite film to start out with, however the specific scene does such a improbable job portraying household, its ties and its custom. I additionally love Clemenza’s recommendation itself from the scene: “…somewhat little bit of sugar, and that’s my trick.” It’s such an amazing cooking tip.
