G…uest 22: For a Sweet Year

full menu Please meet my dear friend Dolly @ koolkosherkitchen
I am extremely grateful to dear Esmé for having me as a guest on her blog and giving me this opportunity to share my Rosh Hashanah recipes. Contrary to a common belief that Rosh Hashanah is  Jewish New Year, it isn’t really so.  It is the beginning of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar, rather than the first, and it literally means The Head of the Year. However, in a way it is, because it is the anniversary of Creation, and we wish each other a Good Year and a Sweet Year. Every dish on Rosh Hashanah menu has special meaning, many of them also carry special blessings, and most of them are sweet. You will find a list of links with recipes under every picture; all you have to do is click! Note that two different cakes (White Leikach and Onik Leikach) are on the table from the beginning and throughout the Seuda – festive meal.
FIRST COURSE – APPETIZERS1st course

SECOND COURSE – SOUP
2nd course

THIRD COURSE – MAIN DISH
3rd course
Essig Fleish and the Meaning of Life
FOURTH COURSE – DESSERT
dessert

May you be subscribed for a good and sweet year, full of great and wonderful happenings!

Shana Tova! A Zis Yohr!

    What yummy delights. I wasn’t aware of all the meanings of all the foods just the honey cake and apple and honey for a sweet year. Happy Rosh Hashanna 🙂

        Thanks for your generous offer Esme! Since I think most of your readers already know how to boil water (lol) I’ll have to noodle it to figure out something else I know that might be appropriate. 🙂

            Thanks! It will be mid-October, no doubt (maybe even November) before I have cleared the way to be able to add anything new, but I look forward to seeing my name on a post on your most excellent blog. Thanks for the invite.

            Hi Madelyn – Sorry for only getting back to you today. I only returned back from vacation. Please just drop me a note here or via email once you’re ready and we will go from there. Thanks for the compliment as well. ♥

            Not to worry – and I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing time. Like I said, don’t hold your breath, but dreaming up a post for your site is now on my ever-lengthening “list.” Thanks so much for the honor of the invite.

        Oh Madelyn, do it, please! It doesn’t have to be food-related, although ADD and ASD food restrictions would be very important to know for many (hint! hint!)

          Madelyn as Dolly said the post doesn’t have to be food related. I would love any post on any topic. Let me know. I am out of country at present and back home mid next week so please think about it and drop me an email if you need more info and I will set you up. Looking forward to this post.

    Reblogged this on koolkosherkitchen and commented:
    Dear Beautiful People, this is a guest post I did for the awesome, great and wonderful Esme the Recipe Hunter. It is a compilation of all my traditional Rosh Hashana recipes, and you have them on time to try some of them, if you so desire.
    A quick update: Hurricane Irma came and went without causing too much damage to South Beach where we stubbornly stayed, at home with three cats. We lost power, though, so the moment roads became safe to travel, we joined our friends who do have electricity, and are about to start making delicious Hawaiian Poke (see here) https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2017/07/10/did-maui-poke-the-big-fish/).
    We are fine, and so are the kitties!

    Dearest Esme, we haven’t gotten our power yet after Hurricane Irma’s visit, so I am remiss in addressing my social obligations. I apologize!
    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your getting this out, and getting it out on time!
    You rock! 😻
