Shabbat Menu – Kreplach and Surprises

Lech Lecha, tracing the journey of Abraham from his birthplace to his homeland, is about the hidden and revealed.  From hiding the identity of his wife, Sara, from his neighbors, to the unfulfilled promise of a nation, much is given to Abraham, yet the reason for his chosenness remains a mystery.  This week we celebrate Shabbat with kreplach, a traditional Jewish Shabbat food that appropriately conceals its true essence.  Kreplach is a reminder that sometimes food, like the world around us, needs to be opened up to be experienced.  (There is a surprise kreplach for dessert too.)

  2. Boy…did I need this!

  3. The kreplach are similar to Maltese ravjul; most often, we eat them with tomato and garlic sauce, but we also use them as above, or baked, like lasagne. http://5sensescooking.blogspot.com/2011/08/recipes-ravjul.html
