Join 18Doors and Sara Gardner for a Rosh Hashanah cook-along! Together, we will be cooking a delicious Sephardic Rosh Hashanah dish from Sara’s cookbook, “The Rosh Hashanah Seder Cookbook: Stories and Recipes from the Reform Jewish Community of Madrid.”
We will have an opportunity to discuss food as a gateway to Jewish culture and how we can introduce friends and family to Jewish culture and tradition through food.
Together, we’ll be cooking “Margarita’s Squash Fritters” and “Date Truffles.” You can choose to cook both of these with us, or just try out one of them if the ingredients aren’t to your liking.
For Margarita’s Squash Fritters:
- 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
- ⅔ cup flour
- 2 eggs
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
- ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- Dried cherries and/or cranberries for garnish
- Sour cream (optional)
For Date Truffles:
- 8 ounces whole dates
- ¾ cup hazelnuts or walnuts
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ½ cup shredded coconut (your choice of sweetened or unsweetened)
