Rosh Hashanah: Make A Fresh Start for the Jewish New Year


No two ways about it: the Jewish New Year and subsequent holidays are times of remembrance, celebration, tradition and special foods.

Our friends at have partnered with Kayco, one of the largest distributors of kosher food products, to create some delicious recipes for Rosh Hashana and beyond—with a few “secret ingredients” designed to help maintain tradition while adding a modern twist!

Can’t be Beet

Beets are often found on the Rosh Hashanah table, symbolizing hope for a land free of enemies. They’re also part of today’s “superfood” trend, being packed with nutrition and low in calories.

I love the idea of turning the stuffing inside out and putting smoked turkey inside! It adds a delicious smoky flavor and is practically a whole meal-in-one. Click here to get the full recipe for Smoked Turkey Chestnut Challah Stuffing.

Soup Up Your Soup

You’ve made soup a thousand times, and it’s good…but it’s not Grandma’s. Did you ever wonder how she got such a rich, deep flavor? The soups below use Empire Chicken Broth instead of water, which is made with quality kosher chicken.
