Adeena Sussman's recipes, embodying the spirit of Shabbat, evoke its magic. Shabbat, the traditional day of rest, is a treasured time when family and friends come together to relax and enjoy a long, sumptuous meal. Its centering force nourishes the soul. Cooking Shabbat requires smart techniques and prep. Briskets, kugels and sides, like carrot salads and eggplant dishes, served at room temperature, are crowd-pleasers. To enhance flavor, jams, condiments and pickled mango spread can be slathered on challah. For dessert, try the lemon black-sesame Bundt cake or vegan rice pudding.
