The recipes below were prepared with Miele products. The cooked items were prepared on the Induction Cooktop. Induction cooking means that heat will only transfer to the cooking vessel and not other surfaces. Meaning, if you place your hand on the cooktop surface while it is on, you won’t get burned! Induction cooking is also faster, which means a shorter prep time for your meal. 

Rabbi Goldenberg with Mrs. G's Appliance Chef Mary Beth

With Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, falling early this year on September 3rd and 4th, we welcomed Rabbi Goldenberg, with Chabad of Lawrenceville, as a guest chef for a recent kosher cooking show. Food that is served at Rosh Hashanah holds deep symbolic meaning to represent the hopeful and prosperous mood of the holiday. Meals that are served may vary depending on family tradition and region, but many customary ingredients at the table might include: honey, carrots, lamb or fish, a “new fruit,” and challah. Rabbi G prepared traditional Jewish dishes from Eastern Europe, The Mediterranean, and the US, and below are a few of his recipes.
