Legacy & Spirit: 5781 & RBG

Rosh Hashanah at ChezHelvetica braided the New Year, culinary renewals and the heart-breaking loss of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Jewish tradition calls one who dies at this auspicious time a tzadik, or righteous person. RBG’s tireless fight for the rights of all people will forever imprint our history. Hopefully, Ruth also would have delighted in the “Exciting Noodle Kugel” from The New York Times, a savory, rich Kugel using Pappardelle Egg Noodles, Sour Cream, Cottage and Parmesan Cheeses plus some secret ingredients. “Perfect Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts” and Zucchini roasted with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and fresh Thyme from the ChezHelvetica garden completed the main course. OZY Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi added a blessed touch. Fuji Apple slices with Honey started this evening’s special meal and then came full circle with a dessert of Apple Pie (made by the Shabbos Goy), topped with Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The second night featured beautiful linens from Israel (gift from sister Abby) and a Caprese Salad of Heirloom Tomato, baked Cod, strips of the Kugel and Basil Chiffonade atop Organic Spinach and Kalamata Olives. Let RBG’s resilience, optimism and pursuit of justice inspire and motivate us all!
