With the Jewish New Year come sweet foods, celebration, and plenty of family around the table. Many of the foods traditionally eaten on this holiday symbolise the goodness and happiness that the following year will hopefully entail — it’s common to serve honey, apples, and other fruit to emphasise this idea. Our Rosh Hashanah menu features succulent fish, sweet honey cake and ‘first of the season’ fruit sticks, all designed to delight the senses and usher in a joyous new year.

Packed with seasonal vegetables and fresh ingredients, substitute the barley for Matzah balls and you have a delicious, soothing soup perfect for Rosh Hashanah.
Flounder with Tomato, Olive and Parsley Salad
Best cooked whole, flounder is delicate and subtle in flavour and needs little enhancement other than a sprinkling of chopped parsley, tomatoes and a little butter.
Lavender and Honey Cake
Enjoy this delicate lavender-infused butter cake with a dollop of plain yoghurt for a sweet delight.
Fruit Kebabs with Fresh Mint
These gorgeous fruit sticks will finish off any meal on a refreshing note. Use first-of-the-season fruits to capture the Rosh Hashanah spirit and start the new year off sweetly.
