What are the top eight Jewish foods? I hope you're hungry because they are all delicious! #8 Hamantaschen It's the best Jewish cookie! Not that there's much competition. Named for the villain of the Purim story Haman, who wore a three-cornered hat you can find a chocolate, cherry or apricot but classic hamantaschen is always filled with poppy seeds #7 Potato Latkes These are delicious fried potato pancakes that you eat during Hanukkah. But let's be real here, latkes can be enjoyed any time. It turns out they're an old Italian Jewish custom from way back in the 14th century. It is told that this is the first time Jews fried pancakes to celebrate Hanukkah only back then they were made of cheese. #6 Matzo Ball Soup For many matzo ball soup is an absolute staple during Passover. Matzo balls were originally called kneidelach, Yiddush for dumpling. As Germans, Austrians and Alsatian immigrants came to the US in the 30s, the Manischewitz company released a kosher cookbook describing the now famous matzo balls as feathery balls Alsatian-style. Historians have said it was likely early 20th century American comedians that finally called them matzo balls. #5 Shakshuka Served in an iron skillet this is a hot dish of simmered onions, garlic, bell peppers, tomatoes, spices and with a few eggs dropped on top to cook. Dip a bagel or french bread in this classic Israeli breakfast. Shakshuka was brought to Israel by North African Jews where it's a staple thanks to Israel's large North African Jewish communities. #4 Bourekas Every culture has its stuffed pastry. In Israel, these are called bourekasim and they're puff pastry stuffed with cheese, potatoes, veggies, meat whatever floats your boat. These are appetizers and Israeli Street food. The perfect portable snack! #3 Jelly Donuts Also known as sufganiyot which derives from the Hebrew word for sponge which perfectly describes the way they absorb oil. Best eaten warm, sufganiyot are often topped with powdered sugar and practically melt in your mouth. #2 Cholent This is a fan favorite in the observant Jewish world because it's all about keeping Shabbat and not using electricity to cook on Saturday. Cholent is a stew that you set up on Friday afternoon before a welcoming Shabbat. You throw in beans, potatoes, garlic, barley, onions, flanken, maybe eggs, maybe jachnun and then your family's ultra-secret spices or sauces all into the pot and let it cook for... entirely too long. Bust into the cholent on Saturday for lunch after 12 plus hours of it smelling amazing. Dun Dun Ta Da #1 Challah Bread Many might think of challah as that sweet and tasty french toast they had at brunch last Sunday but actually this beloved braided egg bread is eaten at Shabbat dinners around the world. Some believe that the braid represents the idea of unity because on every Shabbat we dedicate time out of our busy lives to come together to feast and rest before the start of the new week. What's your favorite Jewish food? Did we miss one? Let us know in the comments below. Bete'avon! (Enjoy your meal in Hebrew)
