This is food from my own cultural heritage, much of it learned growing up in family kitchens and later adapted for vegan versions. My Aunt Rose was 9 when she left Hungary in the 1930s and came to Brooklyn, NY with her parents and sister. She was and always will be a huge influence on how I approach cooking, whether I am making her dishes or not. Tonight I am making her dishes as we celebrate the Jewish New Years, on the eve of the Day of Atonement.

Menu detail

Kascha Varnischkes
Small Plate
Kascha are buckwheat kernels. Here served in a pilaf with mushrooms and bowtie pasta.
Small Plate
Starch heaven! This was one of Aunt Rose's absolute specialties. Schlishkes are a variation on gnocchi only made by a small area of Hungary's Jewish population. Potato dumplings are boiled, then rolled in vegan butter and breadcrumbs and baked. Everyone loves these!
Cabbage leaves stuffed with bean balls, simmered in tomato sauce. A vegan version of childhood favorite of mine!!
Beet Salad
Small Plate
Roasted beets, pickled red onions and greens
Small Plate
Carrots simmered with prunes. Colorful, sweet and delightful
Sourdough Rye Breads
Small Plate
some sourdough rye will help soak up the golumpke sauce.
Small Plate
housemate garlic dill cucumber pickles
Another of my Aunt Rose's specialties, made even better by my sister Barbie! Simply put, Barbie stuffed more into the pastry than Aunt Rose, thus making them better. Ruggelach are a pastry filled with jam (Masumoto peach), nuts (walnuts and pecans) and dried fruit (raisins) for this version.
