Never had matzo balls? Well, they’re yet another cultural rendition of dumplings. It’s a simple dough made of cracker (matzo) meal, eggs, fat, and a little water or broth. They’re steamed right in a pot of soup where they soak up all the soup’s delicious flavor as they cook. Like most cultural dishes, there are many variations of matzo ball soup and each chef has their own spin or secret touch!
