roast chicken and veggies

Roast chicken, potatoes, carrots, parsnips and shallots

My favorite holidays have always been the big eating holidays. That usually meant Passover with my parents in Philly and Thanksgiving with my aunt in Boston. Before I moved to Los Angeles, I can’t say I thought too much about the other big holidays like Rosh Hashanah. Now that I live far away from all my family and friends, I decided to try my hand at hosting my own Rosh Hashanah dinner.

Last week, I ran home from work and got a chicken in the oven to roast. I used The Best Recipe’s technique of just brushing some butter, salt and pepper on the chicken before roasting it. I like how simple it is and it tastes delicious. The key seems to be positioning one wing up, then the other, and then raising the heat with the breast facing up. My sister has a different edition of The Best Recipe that has a totally different recipe, but my version is simple, simple. I also roasted some carrots, parsnips, shallots and potatoes.

I started Digest LA to help get me out and about in a new city, Los Angeles. I never really expected that it would have me learning to cook and inviting new friends over to my house instead. Thanks Anjali, Kendra, Adrian and Rene for spending my first Rosh Hashanah with me. Happy New Year.
