5 Course Sheva Brachot on a Sunday
One of my super favorite people got married last week, and a few of us teamed up for an epic Sheva Brachot celebration.
Here is a taste.
It was a 5 course dinner, representing the roots of the newly married couple.
Salmon Herring (ceviche) + vodka.
Scallion beer bread with rosemary - recipe here
In an oven safe dish, place 2 cups of peeled garlic cloves, 4 sprigs of thyme, 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp of black peppercorns, and covered with 2 cups of oil.
Baked at 350 for 40 min.
Moroccan carrot salad
Fennel chickpea and green olive merguez tagine.
I sliced 1 onion and 4 fennel heads and sauteed them in a very large frying pan (didn't fit to fry in my tagine, so I transferred it afterwards.) I salted it and added Ras El Hanout spice, and cooked for about 30-40 on low. Then added about half a pound of chickpeas, and a can of pitted green olives.
Finished off with sliced Merguez sausages.
I have this Kook one from Amazon. https://amzn.to/2QmgByz
Potato Bureka with mushroom reduction and fresh and cooling Israeli salad.
Just letting you know, that bagel is homemade from scratch.
The meat sat in a lovely sous-vide bath for approx 50 hours. at 140 degrees. It was so perfectly cooked!! It was a "top of the rib roast". I rubbed it with a little olive oil, Dvash date syrup with cayenne, salt (evenly salt it very well), and a few sprigs of rosemary.
Poutine is roasted potatoes, gravy and cashew 'cheese' sprinkled on top.
Homemade cookies + Ice cream = ice cream sandwiches.
They really hit the spot in this heat.
