We continue to delve into my grandmother’s holiday menu, as well as my story, with Part 2. If you missed Part 1, please go here. Part 3 is here. Part 4 is here. Part 5 is here. Part 6 is here. Part 7 is here.

Part 2Part 2 cont2. Tzaddik – a righteous person, outstanding for his faith and piety.

This part comes with two recipes, Onik Leikach and White Leikach. Even though technically they are both desserts, we would have them on the table from the very beginning, together with appetizers, to ensure the sweet year. Honey and jams would also be there from the very beginning, for the same reason.

    1. It is sad, as for the first time in my life we will not have a crowd around the table, and of course I am not the only one, but I am not letting it affect me. I am cooking and baking!
      Thank you so much for your kind comment, darling!~

      5. I want it to be over! My dog (with his questionable face) looked at me and everyone in my circle asking, ‘why’ were we wearing mask?

    1. Ah, dear Michael, my table is always overloaded. It’s the Odessa tradition: there should be so much food on the table that you cannot see the tablecloth. If you see even a little piece of the tablecloth, there isn’t enough food!

      3. I’ve tried as much as I could to eliminate sugar and carbs, but honey is important on Rosh Hashana. It signifies not only the hope for a sweet year, but also the permanence of our faith. Oh well, he’ll go back on his diet after the holidays.

      10. P.S. Odessa ladies are famous for ample figures (I am an exception). The best Odessa compliment to a lady is “You look beautiful, you’ve gained so much weight!”

      11. Great to hear, and honestly the new “small people advice” is not as funny as it sounds.
