I just heard that Goldstein's bagels in Old Town Pasadena will be closing; does anyone know when this will happen or if they've already closed? I've been buying bagels there for 10+ years so this is pretty sad news for this bagel-lover.
Chef, author, and consultant Joyce Goldstein is a culinary hero, and she has heroic ways with matzoh balls. She suggests babying the dough, using schmaltz for chicken-y flavor, and boiling the matzoh balls for a good, long time. Try out Goldstein’s recipe for Matzoh Ball Soup.
