    Their description of the cheesecake reminds me of how my mom make it, and what I recognize as cheesecake before "New York Style" got really popular here in Texas. Its smoother, softer, and usually much bigger. ......also I'm dying to try the babka. that looked amazing.

    Well... about the grandma. Babka actually in Poland a type of a cake baked in a round, tall tin, kinda like a topped over small bucket, usually made for Easter. 'Babka' as a grandmother can be used, but it's rather contemptuous :/

    @SORTEDfood I do it all the time with both sticky and flakey rice. Barely absorbs any water, and the top of the rice doesn't dry out. Old tip from my Iranian ex step-dad, who learned it from his mom who always made tagid rice, which is the best 😉! The trick is the wrap it tightly around the top so the underside is pulled taught, and than slightly twist when putting it on the pot to seal it in.

    Ahhh - nice! I guess so long as the cloth doesn't absorb too much of the carefully weighed out water?

    Babka in Polish is actually “woman” but not in a formal way, it can be insulting with the wrong tone. Babcia is grandma in Polish.

    Hi Guys I have idea for Hospital Food Challenge. I am currently in Hospital and I have had some bad meals, which is depressing when you are already low. Good food can lift your spirits. I understand it is difficult to provide consistent meals at volume and at low price. The challenge would be with the help of nutritionist to make delicious and uplifting meals which meet NHS specifications for calories , nutrition and price per person. Also your subscribers could send pictures of good and bad Hospital Food that they have had. Regards Simon

    You don't need a kit to make "restaurant food". Simply make a regular recipe, but triple (at minimum) all the fat, oil, butter, sugar, and salt called for.

The Barrio mealkit is great, they send you the meat, the cheese, the tortillas, the lettuce/tomatoes, salsa, and slaw. It's very good, my sister and her bf got it for their anniversary while locked down with the family at my parents' house

    For those people stuck in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (part way through Stage 4 lockdown), I can highly recommend the following DIY restaurant food kits: 1. Atlas Masterclass (website: CNboth: - they do a 3 night meal kit exploring a different cuisine each week; and a favourites box. They also deliver in various other locations in Eastern Australia (Sydney, Canberra, regional Victoria and NSW). Price is excellent and there are ample ingredients - you will have left over ingredients to use in dishes of your own devising. I've just done the Italian meal kit - easy, tasty, and have learnt a few things. 2. Monroes Burger's (based in Healesville, Victoria, Australia; website: do burger meal kits delivered throughout Melbourne. I've done this one a couple of times. There's a selection of different burgers and "hot dogs" to choose from. Read their instructions a little more thoroughly because grammar issues can cause confusion (not what you need when cooking :-). However, once you've understood the cooking method, it's simple and you'll end up with great quality burgers at home.

    I'm really intruiged by the first recipe! Traditional Polish Babka is in a dome shape with a dip in the middle and is more often plain than chocolatey. Is this a more traditional Israeli version? I can imagine there is a lot of cultural cross-over between Polish and Jewish cuisine such as pierogi so this is very interesting to me! Also Grandmother in Polish is usualy spelled Babcia but there are variants I guess!
