I ventured to South Boston today to meet up with Fashion Blogger A. I was waiting in a cafe near the Broadway T and noticed a tragic typeo writeo error:
Here’s the deal: Arugula is lettuce. Italians call it rucola. Rugelach are delicious pastry of Ashkenazic origin. If you’re not sure how to pronounce the final “-ch” just ask a Scot, it’s like the ending of “loch.”
We’ve been reminded that Yiddish words ending in -ach are plural, [although there are also those like wikipedia who say rugelach is a diminutive form] which suggests as that with knleidlach and kreplach, you can’t eat just one rugel.
I’ll have to return and sample them once the sign is updated.
