Matzo. Oy, Matzo.

Cooking with matzo, not to put too fine a point on it, sucks. For passover, I tried to make this matzo kugel. (For those of you not in the Tribe, "kugel" is basically a pudding -- not a milk pudding, but a pudding in the style of Yorkshire pudding or bread pudding.) Well, it was pretty much a disaster -- basically came out like some pieces of matzoh with some apples and raisins sitting there, sort of barely bound together with egg and honey. No fun at all. Everyone just sort of nodded at it and didn't say a word, which was very polite of them considering the fact that it was a horror. If we had had a dog, they would have scraped it under the table for him, where he would have proceded to ignore it if he had any taste whatsoever.

Moral of the story: don't cook with matzo, except for matzo brei, and even that's questionable, to be honest about it.
