Make-Ahead Jewish New Year

Tuesday, September 12, 2023

Even if you didn't grow up celebrating the Jewish New Year, these classic recipes are still so comforting and delicious. My Honey Cake has layers of subtle flavor from orange zest, coffee, spices, and - of course - good bourbon! Jeffrey loves this cake.

Also, Challah was one of the first things I ever made for him after we were married. It sounds complicated, but if you follow it step by step, you’ll have a beautiful homemade Challah.

Some tips for getting the menu ready ahead of time:

Bourbon Honey Cake- Make one day ahead, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and store at room temperature.
Matzo Balls
- Make ahead and refrigerate them, covered with wet paper towels, in a little chicken stock.
Brisket with Onions and Leeks
- Make ahead and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Slice the cold meat, put it back in the pan, cover with foil, and reheat before serving.
Orange-Roasted Rainbow Carrots- Prep ahead and roast 20 minutes before serving.
- Bake 1 to 2 days ahead. Allow to cool, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.

How easy is that?? Xxx
