Falafel

Falafel is a delicious meatless sandwich which is very popular in Jewish neighborhoods in many cities. I was introduced to falafel in college at an event sponsored by the Hillel Foundation. You may bake the falafel to reduce the fat. They aren’t quite as good, but they are healthier.

Buffalo Wings

This popular appetizer/snack was created in the mid 70′s at a place called the Anchor bar in Buffalo, NY. The level of heat is determined by how long the wings are dipped in the sauce after cooking.

Selaki – Dabgadz Banirov Beoreg

One of my father’s favorites, This Beoreg makes a delicious appetizer – very light and delicate. This dough is quite easy to work with. The thinner you roll the dough, the better your Selaki will be. You can also use a mild Feta cheese in place of the cottage and bleu cheeses. In Kessab, the name “Selaki” referred to several kinds of fried dough. Do not confuse this with the sweet deep fried dough served with sugar as a confection.
