Kosher in Orange County, CA

"so there's no reason a small, high quality restaurant couldn't gain a following.
"--you mean like where I live, in the county just south?

http://www.sdjewishjournal.com/resources.php?cat=CON&sub=CHA a dozen Chabad houses (+ Pacific beach--not listed

http://www.sdjewishjournal.com/resour... the only ones still open are the last two--one in TJ (open by appt). Actually the last one has expanded to a dairy and a meat restaurant across from each other.

Help Please - the slow creeping beginnings of Jewish New Year cooking Angst

I don't go along with the mb mix--where we live the boxes are often old, and the contents rancid. If you are hesitant to make your own, perhaps you can find frozen ones for $1 each--I recall seeing these each year in the kosher stores.

brisket is pricey, so I always make 3 pounds. cook in whatever red wine that has been sitting the fridge and no one will drink (ie Man'z) or ginger ale--something sweet; lots of onions and tomatos; cook 3 to 5 hours. It's not a main course--everyone just takes a little, and remember it shrinks when cooking. It might be too hot to cook in a small apt.

gefilte fish is easy--either frozen, or use the can and bottle stuff and recook it. Don't forget horse radish or mustard or mayo for it.

But, for RH, you really need the "simanim"--apples and honey; maybe some carrots. Look up tzimmes--sweet vegetable stew--and just cook the ones you like. Here's an article suggesting different simanim, as well as a reminder to have a new fruit for the season so you can include a special blessing for being alive to appreciate everything at this time of year:

I wouldn't sweat the amounts--everyone just takes a percentage of each dish, and no one walks away hungry if you have enough salad, challah and spreads, and fruit.

OK. I"ve posted on the kosher board.
THanks for the cooking tip. THe cashier suggested using oil; adding vegetables sounds healthier!

Kosher bison? [moved from Midwest board]

I was travelling in St. Louis and got my first chance to sample this species. Simon Kohn's promised they could ship some to me by air. Has anyone had luck with this vendor; are there others? The friendly cashier suggested I try making a lean meatloaf or sticking with the hamburger that's on the menu. Has anyone seen any other ways to prepare bison?

Thanks
