Joan Nathan’s Challah-Making Video

When I want to make Jewish food, I always use my copy of Joan Nathan’s Jewish Cooking in America. It’s a terrific book and the recipes are excellent; so with Rosh Hashanah coming tomorrow, I’m inspired by this video of Nathan making challah from scratch, which I found via Food52. My favorite part is when she braids the dough (“Outside over two, next to last to the outside, outside over two, next to last to the outside”) but the whole thing is a treat to watch. Now when my grandmother calls me tomorrow and asks me how I’m celebrating (normally, a guilt-inducing moment), I can say: “Oh, just making my own challah. How about you?”
