Prepared dishes for Jewish holidays

Does anyone have a Bakers' Best alternative for prepared foods for Rosh Hashanah and break fast? It used to be so easy - I would make a few things, and supplement the rest of the meal with a Bakers' Best platter or two. Some times it's just too much to do it all.

  1. Inna's Kitchen in Newton Center has some really good things. They have a special holiday menu.

    1. Can't you still order from Baker's Best? They still do platters and things for home cooks. They do have a minimum charge of $100, so that could be a limiting factor.

        Thanks. I know you can still order from Bakers' Best, but they don't have the usual holiday foods. They used to do wonderful platters (bagels/lox/salads/deli meats/etc.for break fast, for example, which they don't do any more). And it was so easy to just run in and pick up the order. Will give them a call anyway.

      2. Zaftigs? They have a catering menu, although I'm not sure if that is what you are after.

        Also, if it is deli platters that you are looking for, and are Newton-centric, you might consider Barry's Deli in Waban.

          I know I'm a little late to the party here, but +1 for Barry's Deli's prepared platters.

        2. Are you looking for kosher prepared foods? Andrew's catering in brookline sells all kinds of things. give them a call

          1. Also too late for this year, but I noticed a Yom Kippur menu at Vicki Lee's in Belmont. Her food is lovely, so it's probably a good option for the holidays.

            1. Roche Brothers/Sudbury Farms always has prepared Jewish savory and baked goods for the major Jewish holidays.

                Thanks everyone! I wound up getting what I needed from Michael's Deli in Coolidge Corner. Food quality was great; the owner Steve was wonderful to work with, and all turned out well. .
