Looking for advice for guest with crohns

Are you sure the person has Crohns and not celiac? I ask because I know a few people with Crohns and cummulatively among them the restrictions are: no beans or lentils, no corn, no nut pieces (but oils are fine). People with celiac have issues with flour. If the Crohns guest said specifically that her/his restrictions are no [wheat?] flour and no sugar (no refined sugars? no fructose?) then it is what it is, but it seems odd.

Kosher vegetarian Italian sausage and other deli items

Let's start a company to bring excellent kosher, frozen tamales to the world!

I was so bummed to find out the tamales aren't certified. I miss having a freezer full of tamales and the ones I make aren't ever that great.

Tofurky makes an excellent Italian sausage. Their fake turkeys are horrible but their fake sausages and deli are great.

Now that foie gras is legal again in California

Interesting to know. I had only heard of geese being used for foie gras.

They don't use geese?

Question of kashrut and liver

I can't spread it with cream cheese, so it's just not worth it.

Question of kashrut and liver

When they say "dedicated toaster" under #5 ("A separate grill or other cRc approved heating device (i.e. a dedicated toaster) should be used.") am I right in assuming they mean toaster oven? I'm picturing liver getting plopped over the top of a toaster, waiting for the bottom part to pop up.

new kosher dressings!

I've noticed that there is often a lag time between kashrut announcements and changes in labeling. My guess is that they announce this when the decision is made but it take a while to work through old stock and old labels.

Babka filling- opinions please!

First one. Looks perfect. I like my babka a bit soft and bordering on mushy.

Doughnut Season

Recommendations on non-jelly donuts are welcome too!

Anyone have an answer or guess as to why jelly donuts have become the default Hanukah donuts?

Thanksgiving menus please

The recipe I use is super easy because it's in fours:
*4 cans of corn (2 kernels, 2 creamed)
*4 eggs
*4 Tbs flour
*4 Tbs milk (or plain non-dairy milk)
*4 tsp sugar (optional)
*spices to taste (I learned the recipe with just salt, but I like a bit of cumin or Old Bay)

Stir together in a bowl. Pour into a lightly oiled 9x13 and cook at 375 until the top is just golden brown and a knife in the middle comes out almost clean.

I have added cheddar cheese and bell peppers with the cumin and salt, if the meal is dairy and it is delightful. I've never tried, but I imagine chopped scallions would be too.

Pareve Mushroom Soup

It's too bad that the recipe doesn't specify what type of miso paste to use. There are a number of flavors. The lighter ones are relatively sweeter and the darker ones are more savory and saltier.

GMO

Captainnima originally posted this on the kosher board. I agree the topic is not related to kosher laws (kashrut), which is why I had asked the question before the thread was moved.

Did you actually get to try the Mikee Mac? I've never had a pareve product that featured cheese as a flavor that wasn't awful.

Is this conversation ever going to circle around to kashrut?

Also, tomatoes aren't allowed to ripen fully because they would end up in grocery stores as a bruised mess.

Matjes herring

Whose hashgacha? I'd done some Googling in the recent past and found nothing indicating that any IKEA food products.

As for chilling, I'm just fine. There had been a number of people posting responses without realizing it was a kosher board when Phreddy posted. Since Phreddy isn't a regular kosher poster, I was clarifying in case he hadn't noticed.

Portable, not easily spoilable and festive

I think this is the right idea. You never know if there will be problems with the flight or if you'll end up having to check your luggage at the gate or who knows what.

polly-o cheddar/mozzarella twists-OUD

I wasn't looking for something gourmet. I was looking for something with any sort of cheddar flavor. This was more like the regular string cheese with annatto coloring.

Dairy Friday night...

Yes. That would be awesome. Considering it will already be full of sweetness, that French toast would probably do better with marmalade or jam than maple syrup. Then again, I always adore the combination of chocolate and orange.

I tried them and was rather underwhelmed by the cheddar part.

Dairy Friday night...

Burritos. This is my solution for clashing food preferences/needs and people always love it. Best of all, some of the prep can be done between candlelighting and dinner such as veggie chopping and cheese grating. This means you can eat veggies with your dinner since the meal, as it stands, is starch with some cheese. My DH's preferences run like your brother's so I sympathize, despite having gotten him to branch out over time.

Matjes herring

Phreddy, this is a kosher board. The IKEA brand is definitely not kosher and different Costcos carry different brands in different parts of the country.

My knowledge of herring comes from the Netherlands where matjes refers to any brined herring that has been filleted with the tail still intact. THey're usually packed in a barrel, from which they are sold. Since being in NYC, I have seen chopped pieces of herring from a jar referred to as matjes as well, so you may run into confusion.

That said, you can order herring in wine sauce from Acme (OU supervised and all my fish-loving friends love them) from here: http://www.acmesmokedfish.com/herring.... If you're able to get to Brooklyn on Friday mornings, you can go directly to the warehouse to buy and I think buy at bulk rate. Either way, I'd suggest contacting them to figure out exactly what you're looking for. I doubt they'll share their recipes but at least point you in the right direction.

Thanksgiving weekend NY?

They don't have anything on their calendar, so it's worth a shot. I went on a retreat there in the dead of winter and it was still a beautiful place to visit. Thanksgiving is good because there will still be plenty of goats to play with, which might be more of a draw for me than others.

Mevushal wine pairing for cajun spiced food?

I'm guessing the wine will first be used for kiddush and then the rest of the bottle enjoyed as an option with the meal. That said, if kiddush is not a factor, I'd go with beer too. Something packed with hops or a brown ale to cut the heat a bit. Then again, these are the types of beers I always go for.

Tishbi's emerald Riesling is excellent and would pair well with the food.

Vegetable dishes for sukkot and beyond

Veggie quiches are always popular. Roasted butternut squash with a wild rice-dried cranberry stuffing, maybe with some sliced mushrooms.
