Challah-palooza

At first glance, the round challahs of the High Holidays mightseem to be no more than the ritualized version of a GeneralMills-like strategy. How could a bread that is braided 11 months ofthe year suddenly taste different the month it is made round? Eggsare eggs, flour is flour, yeast is yeast, etc., right? But, somehow,the challahs of the High Holidays -- domed crowns of golden dough,studded with raisins, sitting atop a holiday table like a princess'pillow -- do taste different.
