By Guest Columnist
Welcome to SIFTED. I consider myself a reformed attorney and currently give kosher cooking classes. We cook with the seasons, utilizing herbs and vegetables fresh from my garden that make you feel fresh and light in the summer, warm and fuzzy in the winter. Right now, we are cooking for the holidays and we hope that you will incorporate these the recipes into your repertoire!
Braciole, (pronounced bra-jiole) which is a classic Italian, rolled and stuffed beef. Classic braciole is stuffed with breadcrumbs and cheese. Ours will use string beans, polenta and fig jam. When you slice it, you will have the most beautiful cross section of golden polenta contrasting with the beautiful green of the beans and the rich brown meat. You will actually get two for one with this recipe; the string beans with fig sauce can stand on their own as a side dish. To accompany the braciole, we will make cauliflower couscous, and vegetarian kishka. So, enjoy and have a delicious new year! I would be happy to respond to any questions. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.orgAdd a comment
Rosh Hashanah Wine Picks
Guest Post by Hana of @kosherwinereview
I always love to try new wines; Every time I see a new kosher wine, I have to taste it! When my friends are looking for wine, they always call me for recommendations. It is not always easy to find good kosher wine. My goal is to share my experiences to help others. I publish wine recommendations and wine related stories on my Facebook page – Kosher Wine Review, and on @kosherwinereview on Twitter. I present several of my Rosh Hashanah wine recommendations:
Sara Bee Moscato
Sweet white wine from the Puglia region of Italy...playful aromas of spring flowers, almond blossoms and lemon mousse. It is a rich and lively aperitif or a dessert wine; perfect for the "Kiddush" before eating the apple with honey. Approximate price: $6.99 at Trader Joes
Baron Herzog Chardonnay 2013
This Chardonnay is crisp and refreshing, smooth - textured yet lively on the palate. A very complex wine with notes of tropical fruit, apple and a hint of vanilla on the finish. It pairs perfectly with fish or chicken.
Approximate price: $13.
Terrenal Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
From Spain... Nice tannic backbone and a pleasant mid-palate full of plum and cherry flavors, hints of spices and a note of chocolate highlighting blackberry and black cherry fruits. Pairs well with a meat main course- Approximate price: $4.99
Porto Cordovero 2005
Fully matured in wood, it has an aroma of sweet black currant fruit, raspberry and dark chocolate. Great dessert wine. Pairs well with sorbet or fruits. Approximate price: $49.99
Galil Mountain Rosé 2012
Wine made from 79% Sangiovese, 7% Barbera, 7% Pinot Noir, 7% Grenache and has exceptionally beautiful color. Dry wine with attractive aromas of fresh strawberry, citrus fruit, raspberry and spices. This Rose is heavier than most of its type, will be a good dinner wine that pairs well with fish. Approximate price: $14.99
Binyamina Reserve Merlot 2010
Extremely dark red color, this Merlot is not too dry, somewhat woodsy, mild and smooth and with no after taste. Excellent with chicken or red meat. Approximate price: $20.99

Joey Allaham and The Prime Hospitality Group
New York's first kosher omakase* Japanese restaurant is scheduled to open Sunday, July 20th in Manhattan's Sony Building. Butterfish originally opened to the public as a traditional, authentic, and Japanese omakase restaurant in April 2014, but has just been taken over by Prime Hospitality Group and supervised under the Orthodox Union (Joey Allaham loved the concept so much and the Chef agreed to turn it kosher!). True to its name, the goal of Butterfish is to offer fresh, quality fish that will literally melt in your mouth. Served over warm rice, the hand selected Japanese fish is prepared with the simplest of ingredients.
The menu will offer soups, salads, sushi, sashimi, and include Kobe beef sushi, beef shabu and chicken tempura. A very special feature of the restaurant will be "Jin's Table" a unique chef's table experience offered by reservation only.
Address: 550 Madison Avenue (previously Solo Restaurant) http://www.butterfishny.com
About Chef Hitoshi: As a young boy, Chef Hitoshi's father was constantly hospitalized leaving all responsibility to him. He cared for his family the only way he knew how, by cooking. Hitoshi trained in Osaka and was then selected by his colleagues to come to NYC to work as a sushi chef.

Roasting Whole Garlic
Roasted garlic is so versatile. It can add a special flavor to foods such as pasta, bread, poultry, meat and fish dishes. When mashed into a homemade salad dressing or sauce, it is simply an irresistible treat for garlic lovers.
Roasting whole garlic is easy. Just slice off part of the end, drizzle on some olive oil, salt and pepper and wrap one or more whole garlics in foil. Enjoy it as part of a recipe or eat it on a baguette or cracker, when warm and toasty, right out of the oven.
This video explains how to roast garlic:
