Some more recent baking - recipes from Inside the Jewish Bakery

A couple of weeks ago, my daughter Becky, who has Down syndrome and is my #1 assistant, and I participated in a local charity event called "A Taste of the Community."  These are the tastes we baked:



This is a medley of classic Jewish rye breads: marble rye, raisin pumpernickel and old-school 40% Jewish deli rye.



And this is a collection of challahs showing several different braids.  From top left, a 12-strand celebration challah, high 4-strand, 6-strand, 2-strand. Lower left: a traditional New Year's round challah called a shtrayml koyletch, along with figure-8 twists and double-knot rolls.

Hi Stan,


What a wonderful collection of breads you and your daughter made together! They all look top notch, but the challah are truly magnificent! Great work by the both of you in support of your community.


Best Wishes,


Franko

I like to keep our marketing creative.  Enjoy your matzoh!

... although I did make a killer kosher for Passover sponge cake, which magically became a dobos, using matzo cake meal and potato starch (plus a dozen eggs and a pound of sugar).


Happy Pesach to you too!

is the huge smile of pleasure on her face when she unloads the oven, plus the enormous boost to her self-esteem.


Thanks, Eric, and Happy Easter.
