Classic Passover Foods

Classic Passover Foods


While all of the ingredients in the Passover recipes are kosher for Passover, each community has its own customs as to what to use or not use on Passover. Please also note that any processed food must have a reliable "Kosher for Passover" certification.

Over the years, diverse Jewish communities have developed their own Passover cuisines. Here is our list of favorites.

Cilantro lime chicken I made the cilantro lime chicken minus the coriander, I did not have that on hand. I also used bone in broiler chicken and peeled the skin off. We absolutely loved it! Kid friendly and elegant but very easy! I Baked it and the last ten fifteen minutes I broiled it at 350. It looked beautiful and tasted amazing! Reply

I'm sure there are more..... I love to stock up on a lot of kosher Israeli goodies at the butcherie in Brookline off Harvard st.
I've found Costco - in Dedham, has a good selection especially around the holidays.

latkes I don't have a recipe but offhand - break up some matzah in a bowl and pour some boiling water on top to soften it, drain the water, put in an egg or two, a bit of salt, some sugar if you like it sweet and use sugar on Passover and that's about it. Heat the oil and drop in the pan. You can also ad sliced apples if you like. Reply

What a blessing Beyond the incredible wonderful foods that Passover brings, it is important to remember the reason for the Holiday. Everyone, please try to commit to a full service. Don't skip over too many pages just to get to the meal, no matter how tempted. I know it is difficult with all of the scents of food. It can be distracting. Also: have 2 Afikoman hidings: 1 for the young young and one more difficult for the teens. Winners get maoney, sure, but also try to give winners (and runners-up's) gifts like Yamikahs and Menorahs and Seder Plates. Happy Passover from Los angeles!!! Reply
