Sukkot 2010 Menus and Pictures

by Linda Capeloto Sendowski on September 28, 2010

Sukkot and Class 059

This year Sukkot 2010 was a joyous celebration and epicurean delight.  After the solemn days of Yom Kippur we erect our Sukkah in anticipation of all the delightful dinner conversation and magical atmosphere that dining under the stars creates.  I take the opportunity to design and execute several unique menus for our invited friends and family.  This year we had parties Wednesday the 22nd, Friday night the 24th, and Sunday the 26th.

Three different menus call for a lot of preparation and shopping.  I will share with you the menus and a few photographs in the hopes of helping you plan for next year’s Sukkot or for all the celebrations that begin as the scent of autumn is detectable in the air and the days grow shorter.

Hi Linda,

Happy Holidays!!!!! Your pictures and menus are just amazing. The bastilla looks unbelievable. You are a wonderful cook and baker. I enjoy your posts so much.

Absolutely beautiful, Linda! I totally agree with Norma – you are an incredible, inspired (and inspiring!) cook and baker. All this food looks beautiful and delicious. While we did celebrate Sukkot when I was growing up, it never looked as enticing and welcoming and beautiful and colourful and fun as these photos clearly show. How many people usually gather ’round your house for the festivities? And how in the world did you find the time to prepare all these gorgeous dishes? I would be honoured to be sit at your Sukkot table – absolutely a delight to behold. Thanks for sharing this with us, Linda. You are truly an inspiration to all of us.
