Gefilte fish from a jar is not great and can be made better by recooking it with a little wine glaze on the fish.
But EW is not a great way to treat this food when she has not even tasted it at all. One bite with horseradish might have changed her mind or not but at least the EW would have been from the heart instead of from just looking at it.
Italians like calamari but we Jews don’t eat squid. I love italian food but after tasting certain foods from other countries I found that I did not like them but I never said EW out loud for fear of hurting someone’s feelings. I just said that I did not care for the taste of that particular dish.
My friends make their own gefilte fish and horseradish. I would rather eat a plate full of that than the entree and I sometimes do just that. So no more EWs. Just try it you might like it.
I want to defend Andrea here. I wrote the title for this piece and then went looking for an article to match it. Andrea is a nice person who would never say “ew.”
I knew there was a good 85 percent chance that someone would write an article about gefilte fish to match the title. If you search gefilte on our site, you’ll be amazed at how many people seem to dislike it–I sure was!
Hi All. Ruth – it is so funny that you accidently called me Andrea – my mother-in-law’s name! Thank You Ruth for your comment, I appreciate it. It is true, the title is from Ruth and it is obviously meant to be humorous.
