Key Ingredient: Yom Kippur

The Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur begins at sundown Friday and ends at sundown Saturday. The meal following the customary fast is often full of tradition for families, but if you’re looking to mix up your repertoire, here are some suggestions from our Recipe Finder:

Apple-Carrot Tatin Cake (Jonathan Ernst for The Washington Post)

Chilled Salmon With Herb Mayonnaise, a great dish to use the last of your summer basil crop.

David Dahan's Moroccan Chicken Tagine, which can be made up to two days in advance.

Mollie Schneider's Skillet Potato Kugel, a thin, crispy side that tastes just as good cold the next day.

What’s in your family’s traditional meal for breaking the fast?

Becky Krystal covers food for the Going Out Guide and Weekend and Food sections. In her spare time she loves to, of course, eat and cook.
