FOOD

Accompaniment

The dairy meal after the Yom Kippur fast changes with the side dishes.

Annabel Cohen
Special to the Jewish News

T

his Yom Kippur (Oct. 9), break
away from the usual fare.
No big surprise here. The
break-the-fast meal, which ends the Yom
Kippur holiday, is the most anticipated
meal of the year. After 25 hours of fasting,
hungry families usually gather to eat a
dairy meal. To those of us here in the U.S.,
dairy often includes cold fish of some sort.
Yom Kippur break-fast food should not
be confused with breakfast choices. This
meal is more of a brunch, and traditional
options are in order. For many, the meal
of choice is smoked fish — lox and sable
— with the appropriate accompaniments,
including fresh bagels, cream cheese and
condiments. Fresh fruit is de rigueur, as
is a sweet ending. Everything else is, well,
optional. Often, ifs these optional dishes,
the accompaniments, that make the meal
special.

Oil, Health And Kashrut
With Chanukah fast approaching, a ver-
satile kosher and kosher-for-Passover
food ingredient found in many traditional
Chanukah food is cottonseed oil.
It is America's original vegetable oil
and one of the few kosher vegetable oils
available on the market because it is not
subject to the potential significant kosher
issues relating to the shipment of tropical
oils that also may transport animal fats.
Cottonseed oil does not require hydro-
genation making it a top transfat-free
cooking oil. Additionally, cottonseed oil is
recommended as a "heart-healthy food"
by the American Heart Association when
used in moderation. It is used in baking
and frying applications and as a salad oil.
