rosh hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is around the corner!

Cooking up a storm for Rosh Hashanah and beyond?

I got you covered for the whole month of Tishrei, with no end of exciting dishes, including My Favorite Apple Recipes

Although you will find my Rosh Hashanah menu and recipe selections quite eclectic, I confess I couldn’t resist drawing liberally from my Sephardi heritage to make my Rosh Hashanah Recipes and menu selection. Our holiday dishes as I remember them served in my childhood home and beyond still make my tongue smile, even after all these years. And if all the pre-Rosh Hashanah cooking demos I have been invited to give in and around town are any indication, the feeling is shared by countless Sephardi food enthusiasts! I am on a demo tour this pre Rosh Hashanah week, cooking and teaching up a storm, spreading the good word: quick, simple and healthy! Many of these dishes are Gluten-Free without even trying! And many dishes are vegan.

Most of the following dishes are excerpted from my latest cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen: Glorious Meals Pure and Simple. Since the whole philosophy of the book was to make  even the best and most elegant dishes simple and doable, affordable in every sense of the word, you will be grateful that none of them keeps you slaving in the kitchen, and goes easy on your pocket! So here comes! I update and expand this giant file every year, so I know you’ll be happy!

No nuts on Rosh Hashanah?

No problem! Simply skip them, in any case they only appear in a couple dishes.

Although this Rosh Hashanah Recipes and Menu file is quite extensive, you will find hundreds more recipes on my blog, by going to the Recipe Index

I’ll start with a party favor you will love:
