Wow - what a success! The recent Jewish holidays here at the Market of Lafayette Hill really had us going full steam for over a week.
We started out on Rosh Hashanah with an avalanche of briskets (oh my, our customers sure know how to cook!). There certainly was an atmosphere of celebration here with everyone talking about old family recipes and bringing in their cooked briskets to be sliced. That also meant soup items were going non-stop. This included white turnips, parsnips, fresh baby dill, and of course the carrots, celery, and onions. Every time I turned around I had to put out more.
Finally, with Yom Kippur arriving, we were nearly overwhelmed with all of the beautiful trays that had to be prepared. Our freshly cut fruit salad and fresh squeezed orange juice were clear winners again. Fruit tray and fruit bowl orders continued to come in all week as well. But the main event was our Smoked Fish tray - over a hundred of these were prepped in one night by our Kitchen staff. What hectic fun indeed!
So, on behalf of the staff and owners of The Market of Lafayette Hill, thank you for letting us help make your holiday celebrations special.
And oh boy, we still have Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and New Years to look forward to - remember to place your holiday tray orders early. Be seeing you soon!
