Food for Rosh Hashanah

Food for Rosh HashanahRosh Hashanah begins Sunday, September 29th at sundown—marking the ending of one year and the beginning of the next. May you celebrate with honey and wishes for sweetness in the new year.

As the days shorten, and the weather softens, our aisles are stacked high with apples (Honeycrisp!), figs,
and pomegranates. We have the round challah loaves from Grand Bakery, brisket in the butcher department, and encourage you to pick up a fresh pot of local honey from the Bay Area Bee Company.

If you are cooking, here are two of our favorite Rosh Hashanah recipes:

Our Rosh Hashanah Honey Cake recipe is adapted from the wonderful Smitten Kitchen blog, and with it is a funny story of skitting critters, Hollywood thriller screams, and fallen honey cakes. The blog is well worth a bookmark, and the post is a good read.

And check out one of our favorite recipes for braised lamb shanks—Braised Lamb Shanks with Balsamic, Herbs, and Spices.

May you have a year that brings fulfillment and joy, peace and prosperity, and health and wisdom. Shana tova!
