Celebrity chefs share their Rosh Hashanah recipes

By BETH KISSILEFF JTA news service

Rosh Hashanah gives Jews a sense of change and new beginnings. One of the ways to signal that renewal and optimism is to engage our senses: We listen to the shofar, the clarion call of the season, and we eat symbolic foods, such as round challah (representing the cyclical nature of life) and enjoy the sweetness of apples dipped in honey.

But beyond those basics, what are the foods that make Rosh Hashanah special? JTA queried high-profile Jewish chefs about which dishes and recipes are a must on their holiday tables. Many of the dishes the chefs shared are family recipes, from mothers and grandmothers; a homage to those who fed and nourished us in the past.

Many have offered a fresh twist on their mishpocha’s must-haves – meaning that, in addition to straightforward ingredients lists and directions, embedded within each heirloom recipe is the hope that, by making these traditional foods, cooks today will build bridges to future generations.
