This rustic yet elegant galette is a delicious addition to your Rosh Hashana or holiday table. Roasted butternut squash, carrots, leeks, and apples wrapped in a flavorful and rich olive oil pastry dough. Hearty and slightly sweet, drizzled with date syrup (silan) and a squeeze of lemon juice. Something new to try this year if you're feeling adventurous!
Everyone has their Holiday favorites. For us, it is hard to choose a favorite, because we can honestly say that everything our mom cooked over the Holidays, especially Rosh Hashanah, was our favorite ( roasted head of lamb excluded, of course).
Her Carrot and Raisin Rosh Hashanah Rice, with the perfect balance of sweet and savory, has been a staple at our table for years. Over the years we switched it up a bit by creating a beautiful Sephardic Jeweled Rice that balances aromatic spices with the sweetness we all look for in a Rosh Hashanah recipe.

Over the years, our Rosh Hashanah dinner has become a delightful blend of Sephardic and Ashkenazi traditions. Picture this: Nana's matzah ball soup – a timeless legend, untouchable. And don't worry, we've got a special treat for the vegetarian crowd with our Vegetarian Matzo Ball Soup.
But oh, the traditional kugel! It's been begging for a makeover. It's time to make way for a Spanish twist – introducing the tortilla de patatas! Adios, noodle kugel; Let's give those hearty roasted veggies their moment to shine. Who says holiday dinners can't have a little culinary surprise? We're turning our dinner into a culinary adventure!
