Last Rosh Hashanah I figured out something kind of big.
When you’re making Rosh Hashanah dinner…
It’s okay if you overcook the chicken
And if your brisket comes out too dry or too stringy it’s no big deal
Your tzimmes can be a mushy mess
Your honey cake, dry and mealy
No one will care. No one will notice
Make Deb Perlman’s Fig, Olive Oil and Sea Salt Challah and it’s all your guests will talk about.
They won’t remember the chicken or the brisket or the honey cake. They will leave your house kvelling about the challah. They will tell all their friends.
I am not kidding.
This is what happened to me last Rosh Hashanah.
So, this year, I’m not stressing too much about Rosh Hashanah dinner.
But I’ll definitely be making Perlman’s challah.
You can find the recipe here.
Hope you have a sweet and delicious new year.
