Prepare for Passover With a Special Unwritten Recipe for Matzah Ball Soup
When families migrate, cookbooks don't always make the journey with them. But that doesn't mean that recipes are lost. In our original series Unwritten Recipes, mother, thespian and comfort food creator Felicia Levinson walks us step-by-step through delicious dishes that she whips up by memory. These recipes have been indelibly recorded in Felicia's mind by her grandmother, mother, and other family members. So, of course, every dish comes with a great story!
In this episode, Felicia and her sister Jen show us how to make their grandmother's unique matzah ball soup. (The secret ingredients are fried onions and chopped almonds!) And with each step in the recipe, the sisters remember special moments and memories with their grandmother, who sounds like an incredible woman and a great cook—with a playful side. You'll love the part when they sing the special song their dad made up about the matzah balls!
If you'd like to make Felicia and Jen's grandmother's special recipe for your friends and family this Passover, you can find written instructions for the Matzah Ball Soup (and lots of other recipes) on Felicia's blog Unwritten Recipes. You can also stay connected to Felicia by following her on Facebook, Tumblr, or Pinterest.
