Kitchen Kibitz returns with a Rosh Hashanah feast "exploring some of the mystical Mizrachi Jewish cuisine of Middle East, specifically the small community of Yemen." Taking place on September 23 at the Met Back Bay, the family-style dinner will feature food from Sofra's Geoff Lukas as well as entertainment, including belly-dancing performances.

On the menu: braised lamb shoulder with pomegranate molasses and chickpeas; schmaltzy potatoes with pickled lime; Yemeni honey cakes with comb; and lots more, with particular focus on ingredients traditionally eaten when celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year — apples, honey, pomegranates, and fenugreek.
