Sukkot is the Jewish Thanksgiving. Both celebrate how grateful we are for a good harvest and there’s always a feast of good food to eat. And when you think about it, the Pilgrims probably ate their meals outside, too.
Whatever or wherever your sukkah turns out to be, eating there requires some thought. The dish has to be something you can transport and eat easily. Because of the holiday’s ties to the autumn harvest, it makes sense to prepare foods that include ingredients that are part of the seasonal bounty – apples, plums, pumpkin and so on. And because it is such a joyous holiday, the food should be festive and beautiful to the eye.
This Sukkot, make this beautiful Plum Tart. It’s one of those stunning dishes that are somehow easy to prepare, and you can take it anywhere.
