way it should be. And special
hand processing and stringent
supervision ensure that

every product is
unquestionably kosher and
meets Empire Kosher's
unsurpassed standards of
quality, natural freshness and
flavor.
When you want only the

Rosh Hashanah Menu
Uses Russian Recipes

DANIEL ROGOV

Special to The Jewish News

T

he USSR encompasses
so many distinct cook-
ing styles, ethnic
groups, languages, climates
and soils that any general
discussion about Soviet cui-
sine becomes banal. While
many of the foods of Russia,
Lithuania and the Ukraine
eventually made their way in-
to what we think of as the
"Yiddish kitchen," the
cuisine of Georgia, located in
the Caucasus region of the
Soviet Union, has a closer
kinship to that of the Middle
East than to that of Russia.
Wherever they came from
in the Soviet Union, Jews
made important contribu-
tions to the culinary style of
their area. In addition to
adapting local dishes to satis-
fy the laws of kashrut, Jews
also invented and modified
dishes. There are, for exam-
ple, many who think that the
popular Ukrainian vareniki
(dumplings stuffed with
savory or sweet fillings) are a
distinctly Jewish invention.
Another habit that had its
roots in Jewish homes of the
Soviet Union involves the
method of drinking tea. Ac-
cording to tradition, men
drink from glasses and wom-
en from cups, but both take
their tea without milk and sip
it through a lump of sugar
held between their teeth. So

Daniel Rogov is a culinary
expert in Israel.

widely accepted has this
habit become throughout the
Soviet Union that many have
forgotten that this charming;
tradition was originally
Jewish.
On a more amusing note,
what is not generally well
known is that two of the best
known "Russian dishes," Beef
Stroganoff and Chicken Kiev,
were devised by French chefs,
both of whom were comfor-
tably situated in Paris' Cafe
Anglais at the time they
made their inventions.
The dishes below will pro-
vide a marvelous Rosh Ha-
shanah dinner for six. Rosh
Hashanah begins sundown,
Sept. 19.

KASHA AND
MUSHROOMS
3 /4 cup butter or, for
kashrut, a mixture of
parve margarine and
corn oil.
11/2 cups kasha
(buckwheat groats)
6 oz. mushrooms,
chopped coarsely
1 tsp. salt.
In a large heavy skillet,
heat 1/2 cup of the butter and
when it is bubbling hot add
the kasha. Stir the kasha, us-
ing a wooden spoon, until it is
completely coated with butter
and slightly browned (6 to 8
minutes). Transfer the kasha
to a 2 quart oven-proof
casserole dish and pour on
boiling water to about 1 inch
above the kasha. Add the salt,
stir once, cover and bake in a
medium oven for 1 hour. If the
