There is hardly anything more enjoyable on a Friday night than a pot Shabbat dinner — complete with canna-challah and potso-ball soup! I have made many challah’s in my day, and experimented with countless recipes, but hands down, my mother’s challah recipe is literally the best I have ever made…or had. So I decided to “kick it up a notch” (as Emeril says) with my favorite herb and some fun toppings. Bon appétit and Shabbat shalom!
It’s only Wednesday, which means you have two days to make this fluffy and delicious challah for Shabbat. Is it the best you’ve ever tasted? Have another recipe you prefer? Let us know!
The Shabbat after Passover is special to Jews around the the world, and even to foodies and bread connoisseurs —there is nothing like the smell of the dough rising and the taste of a warm piece of challah after almost two weeks of no leavened homemade bread.
Smells of kreplach and challah wafted into the Rykestrasse Synagogue in Berlin on a rainy Friday in March, as Israel-born chef Itay Novick and his staff hurriedly worked in the nearby kitchen to prepare Sabbath dinner for nearly 100 guests. The dinner was part of the first-ever Jewish food festival in the city, Nosh Berlin, and it was sold out — as were the three other Shabbat dinners being prepared across the German capital.
Challah has never been just bread to me. I grew up watching my father proof his yeast every Friday at dawn before he’d race off to do rounds at the hospital, returning at midday to punch down and knead the aromatic dough before braiding and baking it.
