Rosh Hashanah: It’s Always About the Food
THE ESSENTIAL AND UPDATED CLASSICS (just click on each to get to the recipe):
We are fully committed to our mission 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.
You will just need to make your choice and start writing lists. If you’re stressing about how to manage, maybe our guidelines will help. Remember to do as much as you can ahead of time and choose some of dishes that do not have to be served piping hot.
Above all, enjoy the preparation and then reap the rewards of all your hard work.
