GREAT TASTE is BACK LIVE at HY-VEE THIS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2!


Happy New Year to everyone!  I'm looking forward to a tasty one.

RugelachWe're going to set the stage for Great Taste's programming in 2013 with a treat that celebrates tradition, family, and baking.  Al Davis' father started baking rugelach commercially in 1939.  The crescent-shaped pastry's origin is unclear, but it definitely is part of the Ashkenazic or Eastern European Jewish kitchen culture.  The word "rugala" is Yiddish, probably derived from a Polish word meaning horn or corner.  Its food heritage may come from a Romanian pastry.

Wherever or whenever it came from, the little bites of dough, butter, cream cheese, and various fillings are delightful and addicting.  Al's bringing some just-baked rugelach to the Hy-Vee Club Room, plus he'll teach us how to prepare the pastry in our home kitchens.
