Ursula- I love matjas herring and spinach tho I never tried them together. what is marmite?May 12, 2011 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #769914
Marmite is a savory (i.e., salty) yeast spread that looks like tar and tastes like … what you’d expect yeast to taste like. It’s popular in UK and Australia (there it’s called Vegemite). It keeps the spinach in place!May 12, 2011 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #769915
Sounds good. I’ll have to try it. 🙂May 12, 2011 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #769916
OK, we can stop this thread right here and now.
Here is THE definitive answer to the question…
THE best meal is roast chicken stuffed with my mother’s (A”H) recipe for stuffing.
Ahhhhhh…. GADLUS!!!May 12, 2011 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #769917

cookies: “Sushi! Am I old-fashioned?”
I went to a fancy wedding once, with many food stations. Two older ladies were examining the sushi platters. One asked me what it was. I told her it was raw fish with vegetables, kind of like herring, wrapped in seaweed. She said, “Darling, you can have mine!”
(I did, with extra wasabi, and it was goooood. :))May 12, 2011 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #769924
from the NY Times:
“Most recently, such concern has been expressed over the dangers of eating raw saltwater fish in the forms of Japanese sushi and sashimi, Scandinavian gravlax, South American ceviche and raw or green herring, which is popular in the Netherlands.
When raw, most saltwater fish that are eaten can be carriers of anisakis simplex, a parasitic roundworm that may invade the gastrointestinal tract of humans, causing mild to serious complications.”May 12, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #769925
Re sushi at simchas…
Personally, I don’t eat sushi, but I gotta say that I always feel a little bit bad for the (usually) hispanic servers at the sushi table at the smorg, – that the caterer has dressed up as if they were Japanese!
Do ya think they feel a bit dumb?!?May 12, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #769926
Moderator 80: Do you use real heavy cream in your Brandade? Obviously not chassidish!May 12, 2011 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #769927
I don’t eat sushi that often. Although I do like it. But you’ve got a point on that one I won’t argue withMay 12, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #769928

Moderator 80… Obviously not chassidish
If Mod 80 can dare question one of the basic tenets and focal points of yiddishkeit, herring for shalesheedis, then he’s obviously not chassidish! I mean, cholent can also cause mild to serious complications but we still eat that, dont we! Lol 🙂May 12, 2011 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #769929
I love sushi but only vegetable rolls. Raw fish grosses me out.May 24, 2011 12:01 am at 12:01 am #769930
i agree with you dunno, raw fish is nasty. but isnt it against the torah anyway to eat something raw? so then that means that the fish in the kosher sushi is cooked. so then how can something cooked get those worm thingies that mod 80 was talking about? okay now im just confusing myself lolMay 24, 2011 12:09 am at 12:09 am #769931
