Yes we were thinking the same, however don't you think he's already aware of this? This does not affect his expertise and is a irrelevant triviality that before the internet would not have ever spread beyond a person's passing thought.

When I first heard this on the radio, I though that Gil Marks voice was a woman with a New York accent. Then when I found out it was a mans voice, I could not belive it.

Wow! One of the most informative shows I've heard in a long time. Fascinating (if exhausting)!

When cooking latkes, do I use milk or meat frying pan? do I need to use pareve pan for my veggies so I can serve with both a meat meal and later with a dairy meal?

Borscht is an old Slavic word for beets.

If you want great BOILED bagels, just come to Brooklyn. The bagel store on Kings Highway, between 17th & 16th street are really delicious

Can this guy talk a little slower? I can't understand what he's talking about because I'm not familiar with those terms he uses.

Where did the jelly donut eating custom at Hannukah come from?? Seems I only get the craves for them at this time of year.

YES, as an ex-Montreal, living in Baltimore, Montreal has the best bagesl! THey are boiled in malt syrup before baking which imparts a wonderfully sweet flavor and onlt baked in a wood burning oven. (Hi Gils- Elaine from the old Elaine's Grains)

Is there a significance of serving certain foods to certain people? For instance this morning Mayor Bloomberg held a Bagel Breakfast.
