Cheesecake. It’s a totally modern invention.January 24, 2017 4:18 am at 4:18 am #1216198
From About dot com:
“Cheesecake is believed to have originated in ancient Greece. Historians believe that cheesecake was served to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C….
Alan Davidson, author of the Oxford Companion to Food, wrote that, “cheesecake was mentioned in Marcus Porcius Cato’s De re Rustica around 200 BCE and that Cato described making his cheese libum (cake) with results very similar to modern cheesecake.”
The Romans spread cheesecake from Greece to across Europe. Centuries later cheesecake appeared in America, the recipes brought over by immigrants.”January 24, 2017 4:19 am at 4:19 am #1216199

Pork. :). To the extent you intended a list of kosher food unknown to rashi, corn and quinoa and basically all of the new kitniyot.January 24, 2017 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #1216202👑RebYidd23Participant
Why does it matter what Rashi ate?January 25, 2017 5:45 am at 5:45 am #1216203
Because if you write Rashi’s historical cookbook, then the publisher might drop you when it finds out that Rashi could have never eaten some of your recipes.January 25, 2017 5:47 am at 5:47 am #1216204

RASHI NEVER ATE MASHED POTATOES OR ANYTHING POTATO. THE POTATO DIDN’T COME TO EUROPE UNTIL 1500 FROM SOUTH AMERICA. NEVER ATE YAMS EITHER. OR TURKEY. DEFINITELY NEVER HAD SNICKERS CAUSE ITS NOT CHOLOV YISROEL.January 27, 2017 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1216208akupermaParticipant
In medieval Europe, sugar was used only to sweeten bitter medicines. It was still too rare for cooking. It was an additive, not a food.
All the American foods were unknown in Europe before 1492, including potatoes, tomatoes, corn (maize) and chocolate. Coffee had also not been introduced in Europe.January 27, 2017 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1216209

Freese drying foods are done in temps -40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder
Did Rashi have a way to get food that cold?January 27, 2017 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #1216214
Did Rashi eat braided challah?January 27, 2017 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #1216215golferParticipant
I like your question, lightb.
I hope someone can give us a good solid answer.
Or at least hazard an educated guess.January 29, 2017 3:29 am at 3:29 am #1216217
Thanks golfer! Baruch Hashem, I didn’t think about it all Shabbos. Totally was wrapped up in Shabbos matters.
Yet, now that the shavua has begun anew, I really pray to have some answers this week.January 29, 2017 5:55 am at 5:55 am #1216218yehudayonaParticipant
Speaking of freeze dried raspberries, I inquired of a certain kashrus organization about their granting hashgacha to a product containing them, given that raspberries are basically unusable because of bug problems. They said the processing makes it virtually impossible for there to be bugs, and besides, the freeze dried raspberries were under the hashgacha of other major national kashrus organizations.January 29, 2017 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1216219
That’s what I learned too about freeze dried fruit. The insects fall off in the process.
About how insects are eliminated during freeze drying (OU):
“This great problem [of insect infestation] is resolved through the drying procedure itself.
Not only is moisture removed from the freeze-dried product, but from any insects present as well.
Once the insects are dried, invariably they will break apart and be reduced to dust.
The drying procedure eliminates infestation concerns by destroying any possible insects.
This also holds true for dehydrated, or air-dried, fruits and vegetables.” (OU)
YY, Thanks for pointing that out 🙂February 15, 2017 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1216220

Did Rashi eat honey cake on Rosh Hashanah?September 20, 2017 1:21 am at 1:21 am #1367538
Rather, ask if Rashi ate honey at all Rosh HashanahSeptember 24, 2017 12:39 am at 12:39 am #1368004ilovetohockParticipant
He probably did eat rice. It was around in the time of the gamarahSeptember 24, 2017 7:23 am at 7:23 am #1368026

The Navi in נחמיה says regarding Rosh Hashanah אכול משמנים שתה ממתקים basically means drink sweets i.e. honey. Based on that the Geonim drank a honey drink. dipping in honey is bought down in later works.
So I guess Rashi possibly drank honey.September 26, 2017 12:20 am at 12:20 am #1369784
Speaking about Rashi drinking, he did NOT drink Bartenura Wine. But he definitely drank RASHI Wine.September 26, 2017 12:21 am at 12:21 am #1369785
