Recipe: Michael Ruhlman’s Kishke

Written by

This recipe for Kishke comes from Michael Ruhlman‘s new book, The Book of Schmaltz: Love Song to a Forgotten FatWhat’s kishke you may ask? Kishke is actually Yiddish for “gut,” because the traditional casings of kishke were oftentimes intestines of animals. Kishke is a popular eastern European sausage dish that Ruhlman says is so simple and delicious that, “it deserves to be resurrected.”

But that isn’t the only food item Ruhlman wants to resurrect. This week on Good Food, Ruhlman spoke with Evan Kleiman about returning schmaltz to its former glory.
