A Rosh Hashanah Menu With A Modern Twist

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, a time of rebirth, of putting apples in everything, and of marking the passing of another year. There’s no better way to celebrate Rosh Hashanah than by rolling your sleeves up and getting into the kitchen to cook for everyone you love.

Here are some recipes, new and old, traditional and experimental, to get you started.

Julia Turshen’s recipe for Celebration Chicken is certainly worth celebrating.

A side dish of saffron salad? Sign us up!

This matboucha’s been cooked by Mediterranean Jews for over 500 years. There’s no better time than Rosh Hashanah to continue the tradition.

2018 certainly was the year of the beet. Celebrate it with this purple salad. Purple is the color of royalty, after all.

Looking to class up your table? This borscht crostini will do the trick. It’s the perfect melding of French sensiblities with Eastern European cookery.

Authentic lamb biryan with masala? This recipe might be elaborate, but no one will say it isn’t worth it once they taste it.

Rosh Hashanah is nothing without your classic applesauce cake, and this one’s an editor’s pick.

If you’re on the prowl for something even more indulgent, this apple strudel option is too good to be ignored.

This soul-warming sweet Indian treat is just the thing for a September feast.

This do-it-yourself alcoholic apple cider might have you passed under the table after a couple of drinks. That’s one way to ring in the Jewish New Year!

Happy Rosh Hashanah! May it be a glorious year of cooking and roasting and baking!
