Looking for Boston-style knish?
does anyone out there know where i can get boston-style knishes in nyc? i grew up on these and just haven't been able to find them outside of the boston area.
You can't even get a decent New York style knish in New York now. Read some of the other boards on this website.
Grew up in Brookline, MA and came to NYC in '83. 25 years and I haven't found a knish like they have in Coolidge Corner or Newton Center (Katz's, Yonah Schimmel, Zabar's, 2nd Ave Deli, etc). New York's are larger with a greater variety of fillings, but not that particular meaty blend from home. Must be the water; I still contend that Dunkin' Donuts here taste very different from the ones in Boston.
make them yourself. standard oil based pastry recipe combined with a bit of potato flakes and smoked paprika. this makes the dough red. then when making the meat filing, cut your onions very small, use fatty ground beef and then add potato flakes to soak up the fat (do not drain). this will create a fluffy meat filling to put into your reddish colored dough. bake and eat baked.
