My Grandmother’s Recipes: Part 4, Gefilte Fish.

Which teenage love story has become proverbial, portrayed on stage and on the movie screen, rendered into an opera and a ballet? Romeo and Juliet, you say? You’ve seen too much of Leonardo di Caprio, Beautiful People! Those kids have got nothing on my grandparents,  whose love story that lasted for 60 years starts in Part 4 (click for Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 5).

    My father loved gefilte fish. He had it once a year with all the Norweigans who met at Mack’s Cafe (Owned by Doris Haugland.) We were not fish eaters in my family. My father was the only one who ate it, but rarely at home.

    1. To me it is – I grew up with it. My husband and our friends and family also love the way I make it, which is exactly how my grandmother had made it.
