Challah

Well, this one was fun. Challah and fried fish was a regular friday night meal for us as kids. Mum used to go shopping at the Preston market on friday and buy butter-fish and challah, and would fry the fish in a pan with a coating of flour. Kate had never eaten challah, and I had never made it, so I figured it was worth a go.

Challah is a basic yeast bread dough, but with eggs and sugar added. A bit like a savoury brioche. I used a Claudia Roden recipe, which wasn’t quite as eggy as I remember, and was a little dryer. It was still pretty good though, and fun to make.

And it certainly looked right!
