Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Zeidler, food columnist, television chef, and co-owner of L.A.'s Citrus restaurant, cooks sophisticated food that is kosher. Here she gathers more than 500 of her recipes and arranges them into menus for the Jewish holdidays, ``international entertaining,'' and other special occasions. There is a Two-Day Rosh Hashanah menu and a Nouvelle Hanukkah Dinner; kosher but authentic Chinese, Mexican, and French meals; a New Year's Eve dinner and an Israeli Bar Mitzvah buffet; and more. The appeal of these recipes should not be limited to kosher cooks. JS

MINI-MATZO BALLS

KNAIDLACH

3 eggs, separated
1/2 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 to 1-1/2 cups matzo meal

Put the egg yolks, water, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks: do not overbeat. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the yolk mixture alternately with the matzo meal into the egg whites until well blended. Use only enough matzo meal to make a light, firm dough.

Spoon this mixture into a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch round tube opening. Hold the bag over the simmering soup and squeeze out the dough in 1-inch lengths, cutting them off at the tip of the tube with a sharp knife. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes; do not uncover during this cooking time. Ladle into hot soup bowls.
