[Sca-cooks] Rosh Hashanah - matzoh time - Jewish influence in Spain

I am looking for Sephardi Recipes in general to demonstrate the Jewish 
influence on Spanish cuisine.
Jews immigrated to Spain in 1 AD. They brought their recipes from Israel 
and lived in Spain until Isabel the Catholic applied inquisition laws 
against them.
I feel my Jewish friends don't get it. During 1400 years living in Spain 
Jews really influenced Spanish cuisine.  I am not out to steal their 
recipes but to share them as examples of how much they influenced 
medieval Spain.
So if anyone is willing to share with me I would be most grateful. - I 
am not earning any money from my blog - Spanish Medieval Chef - so any 
voluntary comments and/or contributions would be most appreciated.
Gitlitz leaves me confused. To me he does not clearly explain why dishes 
made on the Sabbath were considered Jewish and therefore condemning 
evidence against so called Jewish converts. - Anyone can cook Swiss 
Chard - so how is the Jew's Swiss chard different from the Christian's?
