The Yiddish Chefs Return With Gluten-Free (and Varnish-Free) Kashe Varnishkes


It's time for another cooking demo, and if you listen carefully, a lesson in spoken Yiddish.

Yes, the Forward's Est Gezunterheit chefs are back in another video from their cooking series. This time the Yiddish-speaking cooking ladies prepare gluten-free kashe varnishkes in a video just posted on YouTube.

We like these videos because you get a cooking lesson combined with a Yiddish lesson, just by listening to the light conversation between the chefs and reading the English subtitles. 

From this video, we learned some Yiddish words that we didn't know before.  Here they are:

Bowties = Schnips
Frying pan = Petelnye
Jagged cutting wheel = Tchabattateh schneidredel
Squeeze = Kneitch

The recipe appears at the end of the video.  Enjoy!
