New Food Wedneday - May 23, 2012

What could it be?

If you guessed an aspic, you're close...but not entirely.

Find out what it is after the jump!

It's P'tcha (or cow foot jelly)!

Prepared from boiled cows feet (I said it was similar to an aspic), this traditional, Eastern-Jewish dish is typically served on the Sabbath with boiled eggs.  According to patrons of this dish, it tastes of garlicky beef with the texture of jello.

After the influx of Eastern-Jews in the early 20th century, p'tcha found its niche in small enclaves across America.  Today it is often served as appetizer at Jewish weddings (according to wikipedia.com).

Never forget the golden rule of New Food Wednesdays, "don't knock it, 'til you've tried it."

Eat good food.  Drink good beer.  And above all, stay classy!
