To The Daily Sun,
Have you always wondered what good Jewish food tastes like? Well, here is your opportunity to taste some of those delicious homemade delicacies from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 12, at Temple B'nai Israel at 210 Court St. in Laconia.
Seventeen years ago, the first Jewish Food Festival in Laconia took place with only a few simple dishes. Now, there are dozens of foods made from authentic homemade recipes handed down from generation to generation. This year, there will be meat and potato knishes (flaky dough filled with a combination of meat and potato), stuffed cabbage (cabbage leaves filled with rice, onions and ground beef, then baked in a savory tomato-based sweet and sour sauce), matzo ball soup (rich homemade chicken broth and topped with fluffy matzo balls and carrots), Noodle Kugel (medium width noodles cooked in a sweet cream baked custard, topped with cinnamon frosted flake crumbs), cheese blintzes (lightly fried crepes filled with a mixture of farmers and cream cheese), potato latkes (grated potatoes and onions made into pancakes and fried), deli sandwiches stuffed with your choice of corned beef, pastrami, tongue, or beef brisket, and cold specialties such as chopped herring, chopped liver, or Israeli salad, plus a whole lot more. And to top it all off, there will be dozens of desserts, all homemade, and featuring such items as rugelach (triangles of a light cream cheese-based dough filled with pecans, raisins and cinnamon, rolled into crescents and lightly baked) and both raspberry and apricot strudel.
Because of unprecedented demand last year, all quantities have been increased to try to ensure that no one is disappointed, but come early anyway ... you never know how big the crowd will be this year.
