Gefilte Fish
The technique worked just fine, and I'm glad to have a basis for making gefilte fish in the future. However, there were a couple of problems with this recipe, and I would not make it again for the following reasons: 1) very very bland. It tastes just barely decent with a good dose of horseradish, but it needed more salt and/or flavor. Next time I would try some marjoram or cinnamon, even if that departs with tradition. 2) far more problematic, the amounts are WAY off, unless by '8 servings' they meant '32 pieces of gefilte fish.' I bought appr. 4 pounds of ground fish, and it made about 40 servings. Certainly not 8. I would have made only half the recipe had I known!

Chicken, Fennel and Mushroom Soup
Not a fan, the chicken was too dry. Otherwise the flavor was good, but if I were to try this recipe again I would use dark meat and not breasts.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)
I'm not Indian, so I can't attest to authenticity, but it was delicious. However, as a time-saver, I baked the eggplant already cut into cubes, and left skin on. It was just as good, and much much less time and labor.
