SHEILAH KAUFMAN’S MEAT AND LEEK PATTIES
(Kifticas de Prassa, Keftikas de Puero)

Second stop of the Magical Matzoh Progressive Passover Dinner Tour is Potomac, Maryland, at the home of Sheilah Kaufman. Sheilah has authored 22 cookbooks and will have two new books out this year. She proudly says that “fearless, fussless, easy, elegant” cooking is her trademark. (This is also the name of one of her more popular books.) According to Sheilah, her recipes have to be able to be made ahead or frozen, with a short preparation time, and have to taste fabulous. She loves to share her recipes and love of cooking with friends and family. When she visited me a few years ago, she completely took over my kitchen and cheerfully prepared some of her scrumptious specialties for us. You can be sure that she will always be a welcome guest in my home!
