Rosh Hashanah marks the Jewish celebration of the New Year on the Hebrew calendar. This year, it falls on September 8th. Jews around the world will be celebrating with their families and friends, and likely dining on delicious meals after the evening prayers. Traditional wines and challah, a scrumptious Jewish bread, are accompanied by kosher main courses, such as roasted chicken or the favourite brisket, which can be prepared in numerous ways. Honey plays a significant role in Rosh Hashanah meals, signifying hopes of a 'sweet' year ahead. Bread and fruit is often dipped into honey, and many Jews use honey in cooking as the sweetener of choice for cakes and traditional desserts this time of year. Martha Stewart Living has a lovely assortment of Rosh Hashanah recipes to share. Click here to see the selection. Below are some of my favourites. I hope you'll find them to be foods that can be prepared in secular and non-Jewish homes and enjoyed year-round.
