A Rosh Hashanah Smorgasbord

By • August 30, 2013 • 9 Comments

Rosh Hashanah rolls in early this year, and with Labor Day beach weekends and back-to-school sales, you've got your plates full. We want to help you welcome 5774 and autumn with a variety of recipes, whether you're setting a traditional or modern table, are Ashkenazi or Sephardi, serving dairy or meat, or just want to eat great food. 

We wish you a sweet start to the New Year, however you're celebrating.

Arugula, Pear and Goat Cheese Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette by brigidc (Omit the cheese for a non-dairy option.)

Fish Baked in Foil with Fennel and Lime by Merrill Stubbs (Substitute olive oil for the butter if serving at a meat meal.)

What an elegant vegetarian (vegan) dinner option. Those mushrooms and pomegranate molasses must give the dish such a deep, earthy, umami flavor. Happy New Year!
