A Rosh Hashanah Menu From Kim Kushner

Rustic Apple Tarts

After talking to Kim and looking through her new cookbook, The Modern Menu, I knew you would love these recipes for your High Holiday meal planning.   Kim suggests menus in her book, but recommends readers to pick and choose and make it their own.  Read our interview with Kim here and enter our giveaway and then enjoy a sampling of her recipes in this Modern Rosh Hashanah Menu.  Mediteranean Sea Bass is a snap to prepare and the perfect starter for your High Holiday meal.

sea bass

Kohlrabi and cabbage

Kohlrabi and Cabbage Salad would pair well with the fish and I just can't help myself, I need vegetables in every course.


Chicken with Figs

Chicken with Pumpkin, Figs and Honey is the perfect Rosh Hashanah main that would be perfect throughout the fall season.  The flavors of cinnamon and pumpkin will permeate the room when you are cooking this dish.

Curried Cauliflower

Crunch Curry Cauliflower with Tahini and Pomegranate Seeds

The flavorful Cauliflower Salad can be made ahead and be served at room temperature so you don't have to worry about oven space.

Lentils with Carrots

Lentils, Carrots and Rice will soak up all the flavors from the chicken, but still be flavorful enough on its own.

A High Holiday Meal without some apples would not be complete and this Apple Tart is easy and presents beautifully.

I hope you enjoy this menu from Kim's Modern Menu cookbook and have a Happy Sweet New Year.
