Calling all cooks! Please email recipes for your favorite Passover dishes – any variety, savory or sweet – and I’ll cook and blog the most interesting ones. The rules are:
*Only kosher-for-Passover recipes. This includes gebrochts (recipes with matzah meal).
*For Sephardic recipes with rice or other grains, please indicate *Kitniyot* in the subject line before the recipe name. I don’t eat kitniyot on Passover, but many readers do, and I’ll willingly cook such recipes before the holiday.
*Write a few lines about the recipe, how you came by it, if it has an interesting origin, who in your family likes it most, how often you put it on the table over the holiday…that sort of thing.
*If you have a recipe on your blog that you’d like to share, please include the link in your email.
*Submit by April 2nd – after that I’ll be deep into Passover preparations.
And on that note, I’ll be bogging recipes that stand out for huge popularity, unusual variations on well-known themes, or interesting ingredients. Got a potato kugel that includes something besides – or other than – the standard potatoes, eggs, and onions? Let’s see that! Even better, how about a decadent flourless chocolate cake? An old family recipe for a hot or cold drink served only around Passover time? Let’s see that too.
Here’s a good example: Baroness Tapuzina’s unusual matzah ball recipe (and chicken soup). It’s made with whole matzahs, unlike most recipes that call for matzah meal only. I’ve made these matzah balls and they were fantastic. In fact, we liked them so much I’ll be making them again for Seder night this year.
Got the idea? I can’t wait to see .
