A Passover Breakfast From the Yiddish Chefs


On Passover most of the emphasis, foodwise, is on the Seder. But with eight days to account for, and seven days in Israel, breakfast is literally on the table more often than the full course seder feast.

The Yiddish speaking chefs from the Jewish Daily Forward are at it again, with a timely tutorial on two popular Passover breakfast dishes, a spinach omelette and matzah brei.

As usual with these videos, we get a bonus lesson in Yiddish. Here are some terms that we're hearing for the first time as Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Yochnowitz banter while they mix it up in the kitchen.

Breakfast = Frishshtick
Spinach Omelet = Feinkuchen fun Shpinat
Matzah Brei = Gefrishte Matzos
Bunch = Bintle
Dirt and Bugs = Shmutz un Shrotzimlach
Recipe = Retzep
Sticks to the leaves = Klept zich tzi tzum der bletter
Sieve - Zippeleh

The recipes for both dishes appear just below the video. Enjoy and Est Gezunterheit!
