The New Passover Menu (Hardcover)
Nina says: Its publisher bills it as the cure for the “cooking fatigue” that sets in after years of making the same Passover dishes over and over, or struggling within the restrictions of the holiday to come up with some new ideas. We were crazy about the Seder Plate Salad that presents itself as a sort of Salade Nicoise, and the Roasted Eggplant with Bell Pepper Vinaigrette. Bonus: most of the desserts are naturally gluten-free, like the Cheesecake with Roasted Cashew and Chocolate Crust!!!— From Cookbooks
Passover is a celebration of freedom--and Paula Shoyer's innovative Passover collection celebrates culinary freedom, while still honoring the holiday's dietary rules.
