Identified as Jewish – Passover

April 17, 2008

“Raised Catholic and now married to a Jewish husband, cooking for the holidays has been self-taught – with only a few of John’s family’s recipes passed down. Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls, Haroset, and Beef Brisket are all part of my new Jewish identity. But, what I really love about the traditions, particularly Passover, is sitting down to a long dinner with family and friends. I don’t have to be Jewish to really enjoy that.” – Suzanne

All over the world, Jewish families celebrate the first night of Passover (this Saturday) with a Seder. The word Seder means “order” in Hebrew, and the order of the ceremony and the food are a very important part of any Passover meal.

Recipe: Braised Fennel with Dill
Sephardic in style, this dish makes a delicious side for any celebration menu.

Loulies – Thank you for the excellent beef brisket recipe. My family enjoyed every bite! Taking your inspiration for a Sephardic style meal, I paired it with curried rice with raisins, an inspiration from one of your other e-bites, and a roasted broccoli/cauliflower hybrid. I didn’t have the fennel, which I’m excited to try another day.
