It was a great day of work and we are done for the day. Helga made a roast goose with caramelised apples, a dish from Alsace which has apparently become a classic Hanukkah dish in Paris. Helga's Jewish friend in Paris taught her how to make it and Helga thought that since it is Rosh Hashanah, why not make it? Granted, Rosh Hashanah is not Hanukkah, but we are not Jewish so to us a Jewish holiday is a Jewish holiday and a goose is a goose. Also, if Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and Hanukkah is the Jewish Christmas then, here is your connection, right? I am gonna hit the shower, bring a bottle of red from our cellar and get to the table to start on that goose, people. Shanah Tovah!
PS: Is this cultural appropriation?
