As I was reminiscing about living in NYC, and getting kugel from the local kosher deli. And I thought why not…I could do this. If my grandparents could see me now they would be so proud, and very shocked! I remember once when I was younger visiting my grandma in the Bronx and eating at a kosher deli, I asked for an egg-cream with my pastrami sandwich…..oooh, the looks of daggers I received. I might know a fraction more than I did then, like meat and dairy don’t go together, but that is about it sadly. Along with kugel, I do love me a nice big bowl of matzo ball soup and a knish…now my goal is to make those in GF fashion.
This week started with kugel, and it came out great. I really think the key was the noodle. And since traditional kugel calls for egg noodles, us GF-ers are kind of out of luck, or so I thought. But one of my new favorite gluten-free products, a corn pasta from Hungary, Cornito fit the bill! Corn pasta from Hungary, who would have thought? But it is delicious and not only tastes just like traditional egg noodles, it is pretty cheap. (more…)
