Rosh Hashanah Party Menu Ideas for Celebrating a Time-Honored Occasion

Rosh Hashanah is a traditional Jewish holiday, celebrated in September with family and friends. A lot of food is available during the entire celebration; here are just a few ideas:

Traditionally every morning during the month of Elul the Shofar, a trumpet, is blown. Prayers and religious poems are said during the two day celebration. Typical menu items will include Apple Galette, Bread, Apple walnut tortes, lemon roasted chicken, and fish fillet with leeks. You will also find lamb on the menu during Rosh Hashanah.

For lamb you will need 1 boned and trimmed lamb shoulder, 2 teaspoons of ground cumin, freshly ground pepper, ½ teaspoon of fresh thyme, salt, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, ½ cup chopped onion, 1 carrot peeled and chopped, 1 celery stalk chopped, 1 teaspoon rosemary, 1 cup dry red wine, 2 cups of lamp stock, 6 ounces of tomatoes, 5 ½ ounces of almonds, 4 pitted prunes, and 4 dried apricots. You will cook the vegetables until they are no longer coarse, brown the onion, and fry the lamb. Once each ingredient is combined, you will then bake the lamb in the oven at 450 degrees for an hour.

Fruit is also very important for the celebration. You will find dates, oranges, grilled apples, pineapples, figs, and melons are apart of many dishes as well as eaten by themselves. They are a delicious and healthy way to balance out the fried foods and pies also commonly enjoyed.

Many varieties of dessert pies, tarts, cakes, pastries and the like are often served for dessert during Rosh Hashanah. These often incorporate the fruits mentioned above, as well as nuts, cinnamon and dried fruit.

Whatever you serve during Rosh Hashanah, just remember to spend some time enjoying your loved ones' company and celebrating the occasion together.
