Cheese and potato pie

This is the favorite pie of my childhood. My mum used to make it very often for family Sunday lunch when the family was gathered together. I had almost forgotten this recipe and was very surprised when I found it in one of my mum’s old cookbook. I decided to make it for my kids right the next day since I found it. The experience of making this pie was wonderful; the amazing smell reminded me of my childhood days. I was very happy to make my kids a pie that my mother was making for me and my brother; she literally “raised” us both with this pie.


  • 8 medium sized potatoes, cleaned and diced
  • 1 medium sized onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 dash of milk (as desired)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 175 g of grated mature Cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices of tomato for garnish

Method of preparation:

Serves: 4
Time for preparing: 5 minutes
Time for cooking: 25 minutes
Extra time: 10 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes

  1. In medium sized pot boil the diced onions and potatoes together.
  2. When the potatoes become soft, drain them and mash it in a plate adding butter and milk and slowly add ½ of the cheese, set the remaining ½ cheese aside.
  3. When the mixtures are combined together, incorporate the mixture into a baking pan, now use the remaining ½ cheese to cover the mixture and as additional decoration add the tomato slices in the centre of the pan.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the prepared pie in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 minutes or until the edges of the pie crimson and gets nice golden brown color.
  5. When the pie is baked the cheese will totally melt and will start to turn a nice golden brown too.
  6. This is my favorite kosher meal. I hope you liked it.

Chocolate cubes with semolina


  • 6 eggs
  • 300 g sugar
  • 200 g flour
  • 100 ml oil
  • 1 baking powder
  • 1 packet gelatin
  • 200 g powdered sugar
  • 200 g butter
  • 750 ml milk
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons semolina
  • 200 g chocolate
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. The first step in making this dessert is preparing the sponge. Beat the eggs until foamy, add the oil and continue beating. In a bowl combine together the flour and baking powder; add the flour mixture into the egg mixture and stir using a wooden spoon. Bake in pan with diameter of 30 cm until the sponge gets nice golden color.
  2. Making the filling: In a bowl on high heat add the milk along with the sugar; at the end of boiling add the semolina and set aside to cool for a while; after 5 minutes add the gelatin (previously soaked in water until doubled in volume). While the mixture is being cooled with electric mixer beat the butter with powdered sugar; pour the mixture from the pot and mix well until all the ingredients are well incorporated into one homogeneous mixture.
  3. Cut the cooled crust in two equal parts. Set the first part into the pan and add the whole fill (the fill is liquid but after several minutes in the refrigerator it hardens), and over the fill add the second crust.
  4. Set the cake in the fridge while you are making the glaze. The preparation of the glaze is very simple. Just put the butter, chocolate and milk in a pot on medium heat. When these ingredients are melted and completely dissolved and combined together pour the whole mixture over the prepared cake.

Before serving, the cake must stand in refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours.
Cut into cubes with size of your choice. If you prefer, you can also sprinkle ground brown sugar or coconut over the cubes.
Feel free to decorate in the way you want and to add the additional flavors you like.
If you liked these chocolate cubes or other dessert from Zomick's but you have no time to make some, don't worry, you can just read our cookbook and choose what you want the most!
