Last year, I was chatting with a colleague, Joe Palca, about what we did over the weekend. "I made gefilte fish," I said.
"Oh, my grandmother used to make it with tuna fish," Joe said.
My jaw dropped to my toes.
Tuna fish? From a can?
Yup. That's what she did. "I didn't care for it," Joe told me, although he couldn't remember exactly why. He was, he adds, a fan of non-tuna gefilte fish.
