Bleu Waldorf Petrale Sole with Apple, Celery, Walnut
Wishing You a Sweet New Year
My Rosh Hashanah main dish was inspired by the classic Waldorf Salad, a combination of apples, celery, walnuts, and mayonnaise. The salad was first created in the late 1800s at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City. This modern twist uses the mayonnaise as sauce for the fish and includes bleu cheese for a punch of flavor.
To observe Rosh Hashanah, symbolic foods such as honey, apples, and carrots are served. They represent blessings, abundance, and the hope for a sweet year ahead. Fish is a part of the Rosh Hashanah meal, for it is an ancient symbol of fertility and prosperity and also represents knowledge since its eyes are always open. As we reflect on our lives, values, and relationships – the festive symbolic meal is an integral component of the Rosh Hashanah celebration.
