HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, JANUARY 26, 2018 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or Three cheers I read this recently in the World Jewish Congress (WJC) digest and pass it along to you: "World Jewish Congress President Ambassador RONALD S. LAUDER welcomed the European Court of Justice's decision to uphold the European Union's (EU) listing of Hamas as a terrorist organization, and called on the EU to do everything in its power to prevent European entities from engaging in business or showing any other form of support with it. In upholding the decision to keep Hamas on the EU's terror list, the European Court of Justice has taken an important step in the war against international terror. It has long been known that Hamas is a terrorist organization, responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Israelis, and that its motivating goal is to seek the destruction of the State of Israel and its citizens. In Europe, there are far too many organizations, some deem- ing themselves charities, that have been aiding Hamas over the years by engaging in business or raising funds to support this terror. It is imperative that the EU do everything in its legal power to crack down on any signs on its soil of collaboration with this terrorist group." More good news "World Jewish Congress CEO ROBERT SINGER met with German Justice Minister HEIKO MAAS and his deputy CHRISTIAN LANGE in Berlin to discuss measures to curb the spread of hate speech, Holocaust denial and anti- Semitic incitement on the Internet. Maas indicated that he was prepared to act through legislation, if necessary to contain the problem. The WJC delegation also met with representatives of Facebook to learn about the company's efforts in fight- Robert singer ing fake news, hate speech and incitement on its social media platform." (Fake news? Now where have A special reminder I heard that expression?) I will remind you of this event a few times so everyone will plan to be there: On Sunday, Feb. 4th, beginning at 2 p.m all you Elvis lovers (and Nell Diamond, etc.) will want to hear singer/musician, DAVID JERICKO, entertain at the Congregation Ohev Shalom C.O.S. Seniors event, to be held at the synagogue, 613 Concourse Parkway South, in Maitland. And, of course, after David's performance, their will be refreshments AND MY FAVORITE COOKIES!! (No calories, right?) For more information, call co-presidents, JERRY LEIBMAN, 407-694-0546 or BERNY RAFF, 407-767-6763. JCC 39ers Cinema Sundays At 2 p.m. on Feb. 4th, the movie "The Danish Girl" will be shown in the Senior Lounge. (I see the word "Danish" and I think refreshments! Yum!) JCC 39ers Meet & Mingle Mondays On Jan. 29th (this coming Monday), one of my Las Vegas favorites, Frank Sinatra and his friends will be featured in a video! Refreshments will follow, of course and once again, no calories!) This takes place in the Senior Lounge as well. Shout out I met a lovely lady at Aldi's Market recently. Her name is CHERYL RYDER. She is a notary and a wedding offici- ant. She is also a kind and thoughtful gal who gave me some very good advice. (No! I'm not telling!!) One for the road Mervyn and Kitty are sit- ting in an expensive kosher restaurant in Miami enjoying Frank Sinatra their salt beef and latkes when Mervyn notices Kitty staring at a man at the next table. The man looks decidedly drunk, so Mervyn asks Kitty, "You've been watching that man for some time now. Do you know him?" "Yes," she replies, "he's my ex-husband." "Has he always been a heavy drinker?" Mervyn asks. "No, not always," Kitty replies, "but he's been drinking like that ever since I left him six years ago." "That's remarkable," says Mervyn, "I didn't think anybody could celebrate that long." Sudoku (see page 14 for solution SUDOKU By Chaya Rappoport (The Nosher via JTA)--I was first introduced to Turkish coffee in Israel. Prepared in the traditional copper cezve, it was served piping hot and in beautiful, delicate cups. I quickly became enamored of its strong flavor and clean, robust taste unmarred by sugar. In addition to the pure taste of coffee, there was another flavor I couldn't quite place. When I asked the brewer what it was, he told me it was cardamom. It seemed a strange combination at first, but as I kept drinking I found it was enjoyable--like a stronger, undiluted version of a dirty chai (Indian-spiced tea). Coffee and cardamom have since become one of my favorite flavor pairings. It's a pairing that has found its true home in these deep, dark, ridiculously fudgy brownies. Now I know people have fierce opinions when it comes to brown.ies; fudgy or cakey? Cocoa or chocolate or both? Chemi- cal leavening or just eggs? But I am a firm brownie purist: All brownies should be fudgy, with crackly tops, edges for those who like them, made with both cocoa and chocolate. You can leave out the coffee and cardamom for a more classic treat, or embrace the Middle Eastern flavors and embellish these already indulgent brown- ies with a cinnamon-spiced caramel and flaked salt for an over-the-top, just-what-your-January-needs hit of decadence. Ingredients: For the brownies: 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped 2 sticks unsalted butter 2 cups granulated sugar I cup Dutch cocoa powder 2 teaspoons espresso powder 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 4 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract I teaspoon fine sea salt i cup all-purpose flour For the caramel: 1/2 cup granulated sugar 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/3 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon flaky salt, for sprinkling (optional) Directions: 1. Heat oven to 350 F. Line a 9-by-13 baking pan with parch- ment paper and grease with a nonstick cooking spray. 2. In a double boiler or a medium heatproof bowl placed over a gently simmering pot of water, melt chocolate, butter, cocoa and sugar together until mostly smooth. Turn off the heat, stir until completely smooth and fully melted. 3. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, then vanilla, espresso powder and cardamom and salt. 4. Stir in flour with a spoon and scrape batter into prepared pan, spreading until even. 5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out batter-free. 6. While the brownies bake, make the caramel: Melt the sugar over medium to moderately high heat in a 2-quart pot, stirring the sugar as it melts to ensure it heats evenly. 7. Cook the liquefied sugar to a copper color. Add the but- ter and stir until the butter melts. Lower the heat and slowly drizzle in the heavy cream, whisking the whole time. 8. Remove from the heat and stir in the cinnamon and salt. Set aside until needed. 9. Cut the brownies into 16 or 32 squares and serve with cinnamon caramel sauce drizzled over the top. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired.
