This is actually a very nicely written piece about Jews and food and I certainly learned a few things from reading it.
Jewish food is varied and is not just Ashkenazi (i.e Gefilte fish). I had some very strange food deja vu moments when I went to Poland with my Dad, strange, familiar moments. It was really like being fed by my grandparents.
When I went to Israel and started to meet Jews from Arab/Muslim countries and from Europe and South America, I also got introduced to their food specialities. One of my absolute favourite dishes is an Iraqi-Kurdish Jewish soup-red Kubbeh.
I also love all the little salad appetizers that most Sephardic families put on the table before Shabbat or festive meals and I just learned how to make Matbucha-it came out great.
I can't do the traditional Persian foods but I did learn how to make some of their fancy rice dishes, using black eyed peas, carrots, almond shavings, etc...
Here's another cute piece on the same subject that I read yesterday-the Kugel Maven.
