Alice Medrich, chocolatier, author and creator of the “American” chocolate truffle, was instrumental in bringing awareness of artisan chocolate to the United States. In 1973 she promoted the appreciation of dark chocolate, attention to cocoa percentages and awareness of quality chocolate. She opened a chocolate and dessert store in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1976 and called in Cocola. (She made up the name to sound like a child speaking French. She sold what developed into a chain of seven Cocolat stores in 1989.)
While we weren’t intentionally looking for one, a theme quickly emerged at our recent taste test of “The Gefilte Manifesto,” and that theme was: “I don’t usually like” blank, “but I like this.” It started in the very first moments of our gathering, when our friend Fred took his first sip of the Celery Collins cocktail and loved it — despite a decades-long distaste for gin — and ended with all of us practically swooning over the orange-spiced rye honey cake, despite most of us describing our sentiments about honey cake as “meh” at best.
Tzimmes is a sweet Ashkenazi stew in which the ingredients vary depending on family origin and tradition. The dish is often eaten during the Jewish High Holidays to symbolically usher in a sweet new year. This sweet-and-savory chicken tzimmes is an easy dish with a built-in side. The juices of the chicken enhance the flavors of the carrots and prunes. It’s filling when paired with rice or kasha, and it’s colorful and complex enough to serve for the holidays. — Liz Alpern, co-author of “The Gefilte Manifesto.”
