Make your mother proud by celebrating the new year with a traditional menu of tried-and-true holiday favorites.

Wine-Braised Brisket
A mixture of port, dry red wine, and a head of garlic makes an aromatic braising liquid for this special-occasion brisket.

Lokshen Kugel
The secret to this just-sweet-enough noodle side dish is to use a chunky, homemade applesauce.

Beet and Pomegranate Salad
Israeli chef Erez Komarovski makes this salad with raw beets, but you could easily substitute roasted beets for a more intense flavor with less crunch.

Grandma Rae's Chocolate-Almond Mandelbrot
Every Jewish bubbe has her own recipe for mandelbrot, a crunchy, twice-baked cookie that resembles biscotti. This version yields two batches: one with sliced almonds and one studded with chocolate chips.
