This week we read about the spies' exploration of the land in Parsha Shelach. They return with the bountiful fruits of the Holy Land – grapes, pomegranate and figs. I will resist the temptation to share a menu featuring these items (since I did that last year) and tackle a more complex (from a menu planning perspective) episode in this week’s parsha, the issue of a man gathering sticks on Shabbat. The punishment is severe and the lesson to be drawn is that any work must be completed before Shabbos begins. So let me make it easy for you, with a menu featuring a delightful recipe that isn’t much “work” at all (20 minutes prep time) and will “stick” with you for a while, Lamb Kebabs on Cinnamon Sticks with Chutney.
