Last week I attended a great cooking demonstration presented by a very talented woman in our community. It's one in what will be an ongoing series of cooking classes with theme being traditional foods made for Shabbat and then transformed into other dishes for different days or just some variety at home! The idea is that once you are cooking anyway, make a larger batch (for leftovers or to freeze) and then you have the basis for numerous dishes!
This cooking demonstration began with how to make 'shimmering' chicken broth, a staple in many Jewish homes on Friday night. The variations on that recipe were wonton soup, herbed matzah balls and chicken matzah balls. The wonton soup was absolutely delicious, way better than anything from a restaurant. And herbed matzah balls were so tasty, I'll definitely want to make them that way next time, the herbs add such freshness.
