As is tradition with many new year celebrations around the world, certain dishes are served at a large meal to symbolize good wishes and to, well, eat really good food. Rosh Hashanah just happens to be particularly delicious — apples and honey for sweetness, fish for prosperity and slow-cooked brisket to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Jewish food is awesome. We wanted to take a contemporary spin on the classic Rosh Hashanah menu. And remember, the holiday begins the evening of September 16. So plan ahead.
