10 Rosh Hashanah Recipes

10 Rosh Hashanah recipes will give you a few delish ideas for this year’s Jewish New Year’s celebrations. Dill potatoes, roast chicken with prunes, branzino, all kinds of brisket, and some sweet dessert ideas, too. Shanah Tovah.

Braised Brisket with Red Wine and Honey

Sweet and tangy and fall-apart tender. That's what we think of this crowd-pleasing braised brisket that makes us go weak in the knees.

Roasted Tzimmes

This is not the sweet, gooey tzimmes of your childhood. Nope. So don't be surprised when that old familiar flavor pales in comparison.


As buttery and airy as brioche but with a far weightier responsibility than its breakfast chum, challah ensures a sweet new year in Jewish tradition. We'll break bread to that.

Peaches and Nectarines with Rosemary and Honey Syrup

Peaches and nectarines are tossed with a rosemary-infused honey syrup, for a bright summer taste. Make sure to choose very ripe peaches and nectarines.

Nach Waxman's Beef Brisket

Like a chorus line of Rockettes, tender slices of brisket lean on each other in perfect symmetry and perfect doneness. Here's how to replicate this performance at home.

Black-Eyed Peas with Spinach

After trying this Southern good-luck charm of black-eyed peas, we say forget the luck. Just pass more of these peas, please.

Whole Roasted Branzino with Lemon and Shaved Fennel Salad

Simple works. That's the lesson behind this subtle, delicate classic encountered on menus throughout Manhattan. And so easy to make at home.

Roast Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Dates

An easier yet no less elegant riff on the classic chicken Marbella. Ideal for the Jewish high holidays yet ecumenical enough for Sunday suppers everywhere.

Apple Cake

What's easy peasy to make, lovely to look at, even lovelier to taste, and certain to impress? This cake.

Roasted Potatoes with Dill

A handful of cheap ingredients. The exact perfect temperature and timing. And a little patience, please, while spuds are elevated from simple to stellar.
