Next time you hire a Jewish-style caterer, make sure to request these famous Jewish dishes in your menu:

Matzoh Ball Soup

Matzoh balls are made of matzoh meal, egg, flour, and water. Matzoh balls are usually served in chicken broth, and often times additional vegetables are added. Matzoh ball soup is generally served all year round and is a delicious replacement for plain chicken soup.


Challah is a tasty bread known for its distinct braided pattern. Challah is made out of eggs, oil and a dash of sugar. This bread is generally served at every Shabbat, as well as most holiday dinners.


Latkes are fried potato pancakes and are traditionally eaten on Hanukkah, but are a staple food that can be eaten any time of the year. Latkes can be enjoyed with sour cream and other types of sauces, and can be served as part of the main course or as side dish.


Shakshuka is a delectable staple cuisine traditionally served in a cast iron pan. This dish can be made many different ways but normally consists of poached or baked eggs in a sauce that includes tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, cumin, and other spices.


Most of us are familiar with the crispy falafel, which is made out of chickpeas and can be served with hummus, tahini, salad, or bread.
