This next week brings the Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah. This Jewish holiday is known as the Jewish New Year. The deeper meaning of this holiday is that is sets out the type of year you will experience in the coming year. Will you experience blessings or will you have challenges. No matter what the Jewish New Year presents to you, the judgment can certainly be sweetened by the food. As is true with most Jewish holidays, food and family play a very important role. Holidays, in any religion, is a great centering point for families. As in most families, holidays are great times to bring everyone together and eat. In Jewish households, that means plenty of leftovers. So let’s begin this culinary journey of Rosh Hashanah.
So we begin this journey with a traditional appetizer known as gifilte fish. This is Smoked Whitefish Gifilte Fish with a Lemon Horseradish Sauce that I found over at Epicurious.
Our second appetizer looks pretty modern and not nearly as old as the holiday itself. These are Apple Tarts with Goat Cheese and Honey created by My Jerusalem Kitchen.
Before we get to the main course, we need a drink. How about this Rosh Hashanah Sangria from the Shiksa in the Kitchen.
Probably the most traditional main course at a Jewish holiday is brisket. This brisket has been elevated by creating a Pomegranate Brisket with Cranberry Succotash developed by What Jew Wanna Eat.
We need a hearty side to go with this brisket. Let’s change it up a little bit and do a nice spin on the potato latke. This is a Chick Pea Latke that I created last year over at Feed Your Soul Too.
We still need a good vegetable for our table. These are called Tzimmes from Elana’s Pantry.
I am not sure if I have room left for dessert but I am sure you do. Taking a little spin from our Apple Tart appetizer, this is a Mini Apple and Honey Tarts developed by Overtime Cook.
We finish the Friday Five – Rosh Hashanah addition and meal round up with Apple and Honey Marshmallows from Shoshana.
