Time for some menus:

Bas Mitzvah seudah (rather late!)

We had an orange theme – so black tablecloths with black and orange paperware and serviettes – looked very effective.

Starter: Humus, tuna dip, Moroccan olives, cucumber salad ( yes, I know that’s not orange!)

“Orange soup” – sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes, onions etc and baked beans put it just before it’s blended

Paprika chicken with potatoes, sweet and sour red cabbage, green beans with garlic and lemon

Chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce, peanut butter icecream, mango icecream


Tonight we are hosting an Italian Friday night for women who attend my husband’s shiur at the JLE. This is what we’re eating:

Garlic bread

Salmon with green sauce, spicy potato salad

Pasta and bean soup

Chicken cacciatore, potatoes with rosemary and garlic, caponata (like ratatouille with aubergines and olives), roast onions, broad bean stew

Oranges in syrup, chocolate cream cake


All recipes from Claudia Roden, either Book of Jewish Food or Italian Cooking
