Rosh Hashanah marks the start of the Jewish New Year. Along with the classic apples dipped in honey, dress up your dinner table with these fresh dishes, which feature bits of the tradition.

Some folks cook an entire fish (with the head still attached) to celebrate and promote fertility and abundance. In my house, we trade the whole fish for some gefilte fish (ground fish) and serve it with purple horseradish (made with beets).

Your Rosh Hashanah entree is typically a sweet chicken or beef dish, such as this Apple-Glazed Barbecued Chicken, which encourages a sweet year to come. On my table, this main comes with a side of tzimmes, slow cooked carrots flavored with honey, cinnamon and combined with dried fruits like prunes or raisins.

Finish off your meal with a simple, traditional honey cake, which you can complement with holiday fruits such as pomegranate, star fruit and persimmons.
