I don’t know about you, but life has been so busy around here, that I have yet to create a Rosh Hashanah menu! Mostly, I will fall back on my tried and tested recipes, but I every year I like to incorporate a new and exciting dish to my Holiday table. Here are a few recipes that I might try this year.
1- Balsamic Braised Brisket with Onions, Mushrooms and Cranberries: The lovely Melissa recently contacted me and shared this recipe with me and I was like oh my!!! My friends, this looks so so good! I’m definitely adding this to my menu this year! And wait, if you’re not familiar with her cooking… there’s a lot of more amazing stuff, where this came from!
2- Roasted Salmon with Pomegranate and Avocado Salsa: I was trying to find Joy of Kosher’s recipe that I make every Rosh Hashanah – also a Pomegranate Salmon- and when I couldn’t find it, I bumped into this! Seriously!? Yum!
3- European Plum Merengue Torte: You know how much I love a merengue cake and this looks absolutely divine. Our family’s custom is to avoid nuts on Rosh Hashanah so I would skip them if I give this torte a try.
4- Fig, Olive Oil and Sea Salt Challah: In addition to the merengue torte, I also found this recipe on my friend Julie’s lovely blog Florence & Isabelle. I doubt that I’ll have time to play with this recipe this week as it will require some adjusting on the measurements, but it does look amazing! If you do have time to try this recipe before I do, please be careful as it does not have the appropriate measurements for you to do the mitzvah of hafrashat challah, (which is what makes the bread actually be known for the name “challah”). I will give this a try, adjusting it for actual challah, and will let you know… It just might not be before this Rosh Hashana! ;-)
5- Honey Chocolate Cake: I’m not a fan of Honey Cake. But, this is my kind of honey cake!
6- Tartaleta de Fresas: I booked marked this a while ago. I make a really similar one. But, I will definitely give this one a try. I love a good strawberry tart!
Do you try to incorporate anything new in your menu, or do you stick to your tried and tested ;-)? Any interesting recipes out there you could share?
