First Project to Preserve Dead Sea Scrolls Begun Gourmet Sponge Cake THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

problem of preserving the Dead

basic research project - the first

They are trying to determine
why such factors as variations in
temperature, light intensity or
humidity, as well as fungi and
bacteria, cause damage to the
ancient parchments.
They also are studying why one
set of scrolls - the Manual of
Discipline and the Book of Psalms
- remain in good condition while
the Isaiah Scroll has proven sen-
sitive to light.

Treat for Passover

To get away from the usual run
of Passover sponge cakes, try a
gourmet version, as conceived by
Bruno Comin, pastry chef of the
Four Seasons Restaurant in New
York. Comin flavors his sponge
cake with Sabra, an Israeli liqueur
made of Jaffa oranges with a
subtle taste of chocolate.
Sabra also adds zest to an easy-
to-prepare but distinctive dessert.

A Passover Menu

Passover is a beautiful holiday!
Its origin is in ancient times and
yet-so contemporary. "Freedom"
is its main theme, and the cry of
"let my people go" is as applicable
today as it was then. We remem-

seder table. We also celebrate on
Passover, life and hope. We never

1 medium onion
2 eggs
1 big carrot
3 this. oil or
1/4 cup matzo meal

per and fat. Mix well.

stalks. Cut them diagonally into

celery in it. Cook for 10 minutes. The
celery should be tender, and yet hold

1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup parve
1/2 cup lemon juice

2. In a clean bowl, start beating the
whites. Beat until they start to hold
their shape. Add the sugar, 2 table-
spoons at a time, and beat 2 minutes
after each addition. When all the
sugar is incorporated, beat another 5
minutes. All sugar should be com-
pletely dissolved.
3. Add the coconut by tossing a part of
it and then sprinkling it on the top
of the maringue, and then fold gently
into it. Repeat till all the coconut is
mixed with the maringue.
4 . Line a cookie sheet with plain brown
paper. With a spoon, or through a
pastry bag, form little mounds on the
lined cookie sheet.. Bake for 10-12
minutes, till the macaroons are of
ivory color. Take out of the oven and
cool. Separate them gently from the
paper (you may use a spatula). Cool
them on a rack, so the air also will
dry them from underneath.
