Our Rosh Hashanah Menu

Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah begins Sunday, September 9th at sundown—marking the ending of one year and the beginning of another. 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, figs, and pomegranates. Here are some delicious recipes to inspire your feasting. And, stop by our butcher’s department to pick up your brisket or lamb.

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

Fig, Ricotta, and Goat Cheese Tart
The recipe for Fig, Ricotta, and Goat Cheese Tart is a perfect appetizer. The puff pastry is relatively simple to use and always impresses. And, the tart is so pretty you may not want to cut it up…

Persimmon, Asian Pear, and Toasted Almond Salad
This easy to toss together salad with a sophisticated palate feels festive and will impress your guests.

Balsamic Braised Lamb Shank
A favorite way to braise lamb shanks—there’s warm spice and fresh herbs for comfort, good syrupy balsamic vinegar for depth, and white wine and orange zest for brightness.

Nach Waxman’s Brisket of Beef
Nach Waxman took the best parts of two versions passed down in his family, weaving them into one simple treatment. From his mother, he took a spectacular quantity of onions; from his mother-in-law, a genius trick of slicing the meat halfway through cooking (the brisket is easier to cut then, and this makes every slice a little like an end piece which is to many, the best part.)

Rosh Hashanah Honey Cake
This recipe comes 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.

Gam’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
This classic vanilla bean ice cream is updated by swirling some dulce de leche in when it is still soft and then put it in the freezer to harden. It goes great on top of the Rosh Hashanah Honey Cake!

Spiced Apple Punch
This autumnal cocktail, Spiced Apple Punch, is simple to prepare. Bursting with fall flavors, it calls for just three ingredients: apple cider, spiced rum, and lemon juice. It is garnished with apple slices.
