Dan, how about Tzimmes? Actually, I would probably make Rugulach and a Challah. They taste great and carry well.

and for the person who called Brisket "Pot roast," please to be informed they are NOT the same.

I saw things like falafel and shwarma which would not be considered Jewish, but would be considered stereotypical Israeli food.

I actually disagree. Jews cook food of the places they live in. So Moroccan Jews probably have never heard of blintzes and Russian Jews for that matter never tasted Moroccan fish.

As for the original post, since it is a pot lock I'd recommend to cook the simplest dish and the one you are most familiar with. Basically you want to make something good and in the easiest way possible. I think the dish you are familiar with, the most, and have prepared many times is the one you want to make for people.

Sorry, I wouldn't even touch it if there was onion.

P.S. Though bagels in it's present form is as American as it gets. I've never even heard of bagels like this back in my Russian days.

This actually goes along exactly with what I said Charlie. Russian Jews are Ashkenazi while Moroccan Jews are Sephardic. We are saying the same thing my friend.

I understand, but I disagree with you about what you said about Israel. Falafel is as Jewish as it gets, just not for the ashkenazi jews.

Some might consider falafel Jewish food, but personally I think it is a stretch. Falafel originated in Egypt. It is a Middle Eastern food for sure, but not specific to Israel. Many different cultures other than jews eat Falafel every day. The word Falafel is not even Hebrew, it is Arabic.

I just know that in a cookbook I had, a fundraising cookbook by the women in the local temple, bagels were included in the recipes.

Nether are blintzes or borscht, or bagels, or cabage rolls or latkes for that matter.

If you are referring to being from Israel then yes I will agree with that Charlie, but the differences, to me at least, is that blintzes, borcht, bagels, latkes, etc. were first foods made and eaten by Jews around the world and then adopted by other cultures. Falafel did not necessarily originate with the Jews. Yes Jews eat falafel and it is a staple in Israel, but is it Jewish food just because Jews eat it or does it need to have originated from the culture in order for them to claim it as their own?
