Rosh Hashanah Cookalong – Online – Boston
September 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT$10
Join 18Doors and Sara Gardner for a Rosh Hashanah Cookalong! 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.

- 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
- 2/3 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ½ cup vegetable oil plus 2 tbsp
- Dried cherries, cranberries for garnish (your choice, or mix both!)
- Sour cream (optional)
- Baking sheet
- Measuring spoons
- Paper towels
- 8 oz whole dates
- ¾ cup hazelnuts or walnuts
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ½ cup shredded coconut (your choice of sweetened or unsweetened)
