Why Fight When We Can Eat?


The delis and takeaways are doing a furious business in shabbat staples.
There’s unctuous chopped liver topped with gribenes (crispy shreds of rendered chicken skin), trembling slabs of calf’s foot jelly and heaps of ravioli-like stuffed kreplach. Kugel Yerushalmi, a tall, round noodle pie flavoured with black pepper and caramel, comes sliced like a cake, and for the fish course there’s tubs of herring, serried ranks of jellied heads, and poached balls of minced carp, served cold and slightly sweetened. - - Roads & Kingdoms

Your Say

"There’s unctuous chopped liver..."

How can chopped liver be unctuous? It sets there until it is moved elsewhere, and other than decaying it does nothing else until it is being consumed.*

*Decaying is another form of 'being consumed' after all.
