I made this for Rosh Hashana and got lots of compliments! One note - the recipe says it makes 10 servings -- those would be VERY generous servings. If you are hosting an elaborate holiday meal, with many different dishes -- that is, if no one will take a HUGE portion of any one thing -- then this recipe is WAY more than enough. I had 8 people, and made a note for next year to halve the recipe. Also, may take longer to cook than stated - be prepared to leave in oven longer than the recipe says
