Posted on April 17th, 2017

This variant of the classic deli staple pays homage to both its Jewish lineage and the flavors of Latin America.


Whhen I think of knishes, like most people, I think of New York Jewish deli-style discs of creamy potato or savory meat, enveloped by a flaky crust. Potato knishes are my favorite, because they act as a vehicle for as much good, grainy mustard as I see fit.

Many of you are familiar with the coconut macaroons available in the Jewish section of the grocery store during Passover. These sweet coconut gobs, housed in a canister and preserved for who knows how long, cannot compare to homemade. A good homemade macaroon is crisp and light on the outside, soft and moist within– a perfect blend of sweet, crunchy, coconutty goodness. Macaroons are actually very easy to make. Once you try them, you’ll never go back to store-bought. Need a good recipe? I’m here to help!
