Evan Kleiman's Muslim Passover

New, 1 comment

Evan Kleiman, owner of Angeli Caffe on Melrose and host of KCRW's "Good Food," writes about feeding her Muslim boyfriend's family for Passover: "Ten Americans and twenty Persians. [Her mother] felt outnumbered. Everyone came in holiday finery bearing gifts. No one was allowed to help which made the invited women feel completely out of place. They were accustomed to always lending a hand but instead had been exiled from the room they knew the best. We sat and began. Thirty plates of beautifully decorated gefulte fish went out to the table. Twenty plates of gefulte fish came back. The silence was deafening." [Huffington Post]
