Serious Eats: Talk
What's on your Rosh Hashanah menu?
It's Honey Cake time again for so many of us celebrating the Jewish New Year. But with every Jewish holiday, along with all of the traditional Ashkenazic symbolic foods, (latkes at Chanukah, matzo brei at Passover), I go back to ancient times and grasp onto our true Sephardic roots. Last Purim I made a Syrian Jewish specialty: sweetened ricotta filled phyllo triangles smothered in a rose-water syrup - so much for Hamantashen! So I'm wondering what less than typical foods you might be eating/making/serving to ring in Rosh Hashanah. (Happy New Year!)
