Chopped Liver — Use only chicken liver to make this dish. Use schmaltz (chicken fat) . Do not
substitute oil or any other fat. If you are concerned about cholesterol, eat chopped
liver less often. Chop all the ingredients by hand rather than by machine. Eat it
in small portions — it is very rich — and make it only for special occasions.
Tarato — Tarato comes from Bulgaria. The Jews of Bulgaria, like those of Holland, Greece,
Turkey and Italy, are descended from Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal in the
15th century. This cold soup is particularly suitable for hot summer nights in Israel.
Yogurt, the main ingredient, has been a popular food in Israel for many years.
