Bubbe's Kugel



My neighborhood book club recently read a great book called Hope: A Tragedy by Shalom Auslander. Here's some info and a great review by The New York Times. Somehow it manages to be funny and poignant at the same time and the group really enjoyed it. 

We like to make food that goes along with the book so I pretty much had no choice but to make....you guessed it.....Kugel! I reached out to a friend of mine who is the best cook I know in this space and requested her Bubbe's (Grandmother's) recipe. In order to obtain the recipe I was blindfolded, taken to a secret underground bunker, and sworn to secrecy. 

If you've never heard of Kugel let me elaborate so you can be jealous. Buttery egg noodles give the dish a delicious framework while cheesy custard fills in the gaps with a dense, subtle sweetness. Golden raisins give it a bit of cheer and cinnamon a touch of the unexpected. 

I'd love to give you the recipe but unfortunately then I'd have to kill you. Don't worry Bubbe, your secret is safe with me.
