The opening scene in MR. SATURDAY NIGHT (about an aging Jewish comedian trying to make a comeback) has many shots of authentic Jewish food. Some of the plot revolves around Jewish food !
What is “authentic” Jewish food?
I can think of:
(only true challah (i.e. bread from which “challah is taken”))
I learned from some Polish Catholics that gefilete fish is an authentic Jewish food. A Polish cookbook has a recipe for “Fish the Jewish Way” which is gefilte fish and is specifically eaten on Christmas!
What else? What determines that a particular food is “Jewish”?
