A Sweet but Different Jewish New Year: 2020

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

This year things are different. Some of us are in iso, some in quarantine and some gingerly inviting family and friends to celebrate New Year together. We are fully committed to our mission to ensure you have a delicious and super sweet new year, despite the pandemic challenges that have been and that will be. 

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 so the next year will be a healthy, happy and sweet one. And hopefully a pandemic-free one.

Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, is here and many in our Jewish community will be fasting from just before sunset this evening for 25 hours.⁠

Some of us (🙋‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️)have spent the last week obsessing about what meal we will eat to start the fast (not too salty to avoid thirst, low GI to hopefully allay those inevitable hunger pangs, do we go traditional or not...)⁠
And then there is a completely new conversation about what to eat to break the fast (cinnamon buns or babke, a full meal of brisket and potatoes, a lighter option with pasta and fish and then the inevitable comment 'I could just have a cup of tea and a piece of cake and go to bed' (which of course no-one seems to ever do)⁠

So many debates going on! ⁠

We hope whatever you choose is exactly what you need to make it an easy fast, and on the other side is exactly what you need so you don't finish the meal holding your belly and moaning😜 (we've all been there).⁠

We wish everyone chag sameach, g’mar chatima Tova, and may you have an easy fast!⁠

Love to all,⁠
Lisa, Jaks, Merelyn and Natty ⁠
