Rosh Hashanah services have a tendency to run very late in most communities making lunches the most important meal of the day and  you better make a lot of food because we guarantee your crowd will come hungry. 

Even though it is yom tov and you have more flexibility to cook and heat up food, when you come home so late you need food that is ready and waiting. Here is a Rosh Hashanah menu that will satisfy all your needs. 

Begin with a bunch of room temperature and cold salads and spreads to enjoy with your sweet round challah

Move on to the main course that can heat up while you are eating the spreads. 

coq au vin

Coq Au Vin

Stewy chicken dishes do particularly well heated up the next day and coq au vin is a classic.  If you prefer chicken cutlets try Chicken Marsala

sweet and sour meatballs

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This dish is always a winner for a reason.  Can be made ahead and frozen, reheats well and is loved by all.  For a more seasonal take on these meatballs try Pomegranate Meatballs.
