"My grandmother (my safta, Hebrew for grandma) always made this mock liver because she felt it to be healthier than one made with liver and shmaltz (chicken fat)," says Evan Bloom of Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen in San Francisco. The recipe is like a vegetable pâté, and Bloom and Wise Sons co-owner Leo Beckerman put it on the menu for Passover.
As an answer to gefilte fish from a jar, which can be heavy and strong-flavored, Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman of Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen in San Francisco created this very fresh and mild-tasting homemade version for Passover. The gefilte fish have a texture like light matzo balls, and are served with a carrot applesauce. Wise Sons also serves their own fresh horseradish sauce, but we've opted to buy it.
