It interesting to hear that LA Jewish poiatulpon is mostly Sephardic (in Yugoslavia, we had a big Jewish poiatulpon that ran away from Spain and settled in Bosnia, even though we are geographically closer to Eastern Europe).My friends in Michigan were Ashkenazi Jews and their cuisine sounded really familiar to what I used to rat growing up (minus some Balkan specialties brought over by the Ottoman Turks).Food anthropology always fascinated me and I love learning about different customs.Our Serbian Easter (next Sunday) is a very simple affair - all dishes celebrate the arrival of spring: roasted lamb, new potatoes, bibb lettuce with spring onions and radishes and if you want to splurge, a side dish of peas or spinach. I am sticking to simplicity, just like you:)
