Essentials for Passover Meals; Or Not

Flowers, special dishes and serving pieces on your holiday table? Essential or not? How about a buffet loaded with multiple family favorites? How many are enough?

The word “essential” has taken on new meaning since we re-imagined Passover seders one year ago, in 2020. If we’ve learned anything, as we face another season of micro holiday dinners during this pandemic, it’s about identifying what really matters to us as families, communities, circles of friends and nations.

As some of you who follow me on instagram and facebook know, I took a nasty spill on a paddle court a few weeks ago. Wrist surgery followed, plates and screws included. I share this here because I haven’t been able to create, cook, shoot or type.

So I’m asking you, my most enthusiastic readers, to use my index to find recipes and inspiration as you hone in, once again, on your essentials. I have 10 years of content here. YIKES!

You’ll find PASSOVER under HOLIDAYS, or you can search for elements of the meal under RECIPES.

Those looking for sides will find plenty to consider. Try something new or give one of your standbys a refresh. Remember that Pesach’s other name is Hag HaAviv, the spring celebration, so be sure to include plenty of spring greens in your menus.
