A morning meal is a window into other communities and cultures
Schmaltz - rendered chicken fat - was common in our house growing up. When my mother (z"l) rendered it with onions, it became "gribenes" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gribenes - and we were told to stay away - it was saved for Dad (z"l) who then traveled for work and there for him when he got home to put on a piece of seedy rye. SO reading about lamb fat's use, I was intrigued. Does one render it like one did with chicken fat to make schmaltz? Do tell us please how best to use it and if we take from .. well, what piece of lamb and can one buy lamb fat in the US to use?
One of my most poignant memories of the years we lived in Beirut--pre civil war--was breakfast shared with a group of taxi drivers on the terrace of the Commodore Hotel. Olives, white cheese, fool (beans), yogurt, radishes, spring onions. Let's open a breakfast restaurant, Chef, and serve breakfast all day from all over the world. I'm in!
Would you consider doing a newsletter about places you recommend visiting in Spain? I'm taking my daughter to Spain as a high school graduation celebration this fall and we are such fans of your work and your humanitarian efforts, that we would love to hear your thoughts on favorite spots to visit in Spain.
There is a reason breakfast is the most important meal of the day! 😊
I love a savory breakfast myself. So eggs, bacon, cheese and all variations thereof are my favorite. I love hearing about breakfasts around the world, and what people in other cultures are eating to start their day!
