Instagram-worthy avocado toast, overpriced smoothies and Seamless may be what comes to mind whe you think of millennials' relationship to food. But in “Hot Mess Kitchen: Recipes For Your Delicious, Disastrous Life” (Grand Central Publishing) Gabi Moskowitz and Miranda Berman break that stereotype one heaped-tablespoon at a time.

Sukkot, falling when it does in the year, is a kind of Jewish Thanksgiving. On both holidays we eat, and are grateful for, the bountiful produce of a recent harvest. Unlike Thanksgiving, with its turkey and cranberry sauce and such, there is no one specific dish or recipe for Sukkot. But there is a generalized notion of eating stuffed foods as a symbolic way to give thanks for all our edible earthly blessings. We are, literally, stuffed.

The holiday of Yom Kippur is one of reflection, repentance, and prayer, all of which takes place while fasting. At the end of the holiday, Jews traditionally share a joyful break-fast meal with family and friends. For Ashkenazim, the festive menu usually consists of foods such as eggs, cheese, and bread. In America, bagels and lox is often the standard menu.

Wine Recommendations For Your Post-Yom Kippur Meal

Every family seems to have its own traditions when it comes time to breaking the fast after Yom Kippur. Since the meal occurs at the end of a very long day, the foods are often some variation of a milchik (dairy) or pareve (neutral) breakfast or brunch. While there are typically loads of desserts and other sweets, such as honey or jams—serving as both reminder and ardent wish of life’s sweetness and the promise of the New Year—at least one (and often many) of the dishes will contain eggs, perhaps recalling the cycle of life.

5 Medium-Bodied Reds For The Sukkah

Until recently, the trend in kosher wine has been to create red wines that are both exceedingly fruity and full bodied. While there are many occasions where such wines can be delightful, a warm afternoon in a humid sukkah is not one of them. Fortunately, there are now a growing number of quality medium-bodied kosher reds available. In preparation for Sukkot I tasted more than a dozen such reds and have selected five, priced under $40, any of which would make a lovely addition to a meal in your sukkah.
