When Chopped Liver Is Therapeutic, Not a Punishment

Published January 12, 2022

And it also happens to be delicious

My father-in-law always appreciates my cooking, no matter how unfamiliar he is with what I’ve made. In the 29 years since I married into the family, I’ve introduced him to matzah ball soup, brisket, rugelach, and other delicacies he’d never encountered growing up on the prairies of Western Canada. He’s never said no to anything I’ve offered, which I believe is less a testament to my culinary skills than proof of his fearless and enthusiastic appetite for anything edible.

That changed earlier this year, when I offered to make him chopped liver to beef up his hemoglobin levels before he started treatment for gastric lymphoma.
