A Delicious Jewish New Year: 2018

It's time to eat sweet, to ensure a sweet new year ahead.

Rosh Hashanah: It IS Always About the Food 

Our mission in this post is to ensure you have a delicious and super sweet new year. And since it is always about the food, and we are always about the food, here we go.

For those who don’t know much about this time of year, Jewish people celebrate by consuming many sweet dishes, many of which contain honey. This is why you’ll see lots of recipes for honey cakes and honey biscuits, and also apples dipped in honey, carrots cooked in honey, meat roasted with honey and so on.

And it is all to ensure a sweet new year. So jump on the bandwagon and let’s get cooking.

Lamingtons

The lamington is a traditional Australian cake made of a square of white cake coated in a light chocolate icing and then rolled in coconut. The last weekend in January is a long one here in Australia and we love nothing more than a public holiday and a long weekend. Australia Day is generally a day for BBQs and swimming, beach-going and drinking beer, and eating sausage rolls and lamingtons. As usual, for us, it’s always about the food.
