COOKING VIDEO: Challah Bread Recipe

 

Challah, the traditional Jewish bread, dates to ancient Israel.

The word itself refers to a tithe of bread that was given to the priests, who had no income. A portion of the dough was sanctified, and the remainder was used for ordinary consumption.

It became customary to serve challah with all Sabbath and holiday meals. Before cutting the bread, a blessing for the food (a motzi) is recited.

Challah arrived in America with Jewish immigrants. The word is pronounced CHAH-luh, with a guttural ch as in the German word ach (here’s an audio pronunciation).

  • Read our review of Motzi Challah, delicious flavored challah. Our favorite, Sundried Tomato Challah, is an irresistable challah-pizza fusion.
  • Try this delicious honey challah recipe, in addition to the recipe in the video. Most commercial challah is parve, so it can be eaten with meat and other non-dairy foods. Both of these recipes use butter, which gives the challah an even lovelier flavor.
