Adventures in Food: Part II

It's awesome having a Jewish boss, because you get to try cool things like gefilte fish (disgusting, by the way). We went to Zaroff's for Passover lunch; I tried their version of a potato knish (which honestly was not as good as Cecil's), and a hush puppy (beef frank surrounded by mashed potatoes and wrapped in some egg roll-ish material and deep fried). It was pretty good, but bigger than I thought it would be, and a little on the heavy side. Wait: a deep-fried hot dog...did I think that would be light?

The Canadians have this dish called Putin.. another of those lite dishes..Picture French fries, covered with melted Cheese Curds, toped with Gravey. Would go great with your Hush Puppies.

I rarely feel the need to defend my homeland(we're quirky and I've accepted it), but I can't let this slide. Putin, actually spelled Poutine, is a Quebec delicacy.

Now Quebec is Canadian, but when it comes to things like this, you are better off describing the dish as French-Canadian. You were bang on with the ingredients. Poutine is a little slice of death. Here's a little history lesson. Enjoy.

aaah... Gefilte fish. Judging by the recipe link provided, it's very similar to farshmak - same thing but Russian. Good stuff! I'd better ask my mom to make it when i go to Russia this May. By the way if somebody ever will call a dish after the name of the Russian president (Putin) - I will kRRush you! ;)

please, people. do not piss off The Russian.

Actually, I am cute and cuddly... and playful. ;)

Oh man...gifilte fish with a big old glob of hot horseradish...mmm. That's so good it'll make you wanna slap your momma. Especially since *my* momma likes to put beets in her horseradish, which is criminal because it cuts the heat. How are you supposed to make your nose run with that weak-ass horseradish? You just can't.

*gefilte, duh. I swear, I cannot tyep today.
