Bark mitzvah food

What to serve the dogs

Next time your dog gives you that, “What am I, chopped liver?” look when you leave the house without him, you can remind him that sometimes, chopped liver is a good thing. Like when it’s baked into a liver cake.

Liver cake

1 lb chicken liver (kosher, of course)

2 large eggs

1 T brown sugar

1 1/2 cups cornmeal

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Puree liver, eggs, and brown sugar in a food processor, blending well. Pour mixture into a well-greased 9″ by 9″ baking pan. Bake until a knife stuck into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool.

What to serve the people

While the dogs chow down on the liver cake (separate servings are recommended to keep the peace), let the humans nosh on a tasty buffet. To keep it simple, there’s always bagels, lox, and cream cheese with a heaping bowl of fresh fruit. Potato latkes, a Hannukah favorite, are a hit anytime of year.
