One Day at a time here is some more:
Farfel- Its farfalen The Heilege Bashefer miz shoin helfin!
Meirin- Mir zol merin gezinteheit!
You see sacrilege there are ppl even in todays dor who have better thought when they eat Shabbosdige macholim!!February 1, 2011 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #735086Derech HaMelechMember
Does anyone have the minhag to eat AMaLeK kugels? Apple Meal Lukshin and Kertufel?
Anyway, I think all (kosher) foods have (real) kavanos to them. If you know how to make gematrios you know that almost anything is possible if you know what to look for. I don’t think any food has a kedushah mitzad atzmo. Some as Mod-80 said have more chashivus.
What is true though, is that as a holy people we have the ability to raise food above its mundane state with our kavanos. The sefer Shulchan HaTohor is a well known example of that.
It was explained to me once that every action that we do has its parallels in shamayim in the holiest of places, even going to the bathroom. If we would be able to really integrate into ourselves how much every action we do as Jewish people moves worlds and worlds we would be afraid to lift a pinky not in service to Hashem.February 1, 2011 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #735087SacrilegeMember
I’d venture to guess Ptcha didnt come about from the wealthy.February 1, 2011 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #735088

“it doesnt become “holy” but a long tradition does give it a certain choshivus”
Oh, it’s holy alright, just like our holy mamah loshon.
Are there any mavinim out there who knows where they sell decent p’cha/gala in Brooklyn? It’s become a lost art and I’ve been searching for the real thing for a long time.February 1, 2011 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #735091lkwdfellowMember

When you do become one, lemme know, i’d like to stop by for some cholentFebruary 2, 2011 3:41 am at 3:41 am #735097oomisParticipant
Sapphire, let me state for the record that I can say anything I want about the way I feel about food. P’tcha is not a food. It is the extract of the bone marrow or some such gelatinous glop from calves’ bones, boiled and mixed with a lot of garlic. It looks disgusting, and I am certain the first person to make this delicacy probably had nothing to eat but the bones, so he or she tried to make a soup of it, and this was the end result. If you like it, KOL HAKAVOD. I do not like it Sam I am.February 2, 2011 3:47 am at 3:47 am #735098SapphireMember
(By the way, I never said I liked it. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted it.)February 2, 2011 3:57 am at 3:57 am #735099cherrybimParticipant
Oomis, I feel your pain but give yourself a chance. P’tcha is an acquired taste like fine dry wine and it’s full of nutrients. So don’t deprive yourself of this time tested and tasted cuisine and join us who are privileged to indulge.February 2, 2011 4:10 am at 4:10 am #735100
“Let me state for the record…
ptcha is not a food”
So how come we can digest it?
Do our bodies digest wood, metal
plastic? NO because they’re not
food, but p’tcha IS FOOD
You can voice your opinion, but
you don’t need to be so obnoxious

Thanks 1Day. I really wanted to get out peacefully and just leave this topic… but I think that there is a mentchlich way of expressing one’s opinion. Even if one doesn’t like something, there is a way to indicate so, and the expressions used are a reflection. I guess I just felt let down with the terms being used…February 2, 2011 4:43 am at 4:43 am #735102☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
P’tcha is an acquired taste
“Nobody ever had to acquire a taste for potato chips.” – Yankel Maza
BTW, I like p’tcha.February 2, 2011 4:49 am at 4:49 am #735103chayav inish livisumayParticipant
im a little confused is gala the same as ptcha??February 2, 2011 4:56 am at 4:56 am #735104smartcookieMember
Yes they are (I think).February 2, 2011 5:10 am at 5:10 am #735105usbaersMember
Food? You dare to call ptcha merely “food”?! Ptcha is ambrosial! Fit for the most discerning gourmands! Served at the tables of kings!
My father, he should live and be well and keep cooking, makes the best ptcha in the world (or at least, the best I’ve ever tasted). He will even customize a batch to individual palates, by adding olives or pickles or capers or hardboiled eggs or red onion (the best) or whatever.
Personally, I eat it with a fork. Go ahead, call me a litvack.February 2, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #735106
1 day at a atime:You don’t need to be a rebetzin to make agood chulent!! I make agreat chulent by the way. To everyones shock I never eat Ptze (as We pronounce it)but I make it and would never make fun of it!!February 2, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #735108
I thought p’tze was something else?
