The Shiksa’s Passover Potluck 2013

 The Shiksa's Passover Potluck Badge 2013 Large

Passover is one of the most important Jewish holidays, a seven-day springtime festival commemorating the liberation of the Ancient Israelites from Egyptian slavery to freedom. It also happens to be one of my favorite holidays because of the incredible food and family traditions it inspires. Each year, I celebrate the holiday on with a unique annual event called The Passover Potluck. I’ve invited my friends, both Jewish and non-Jewish, to share recipes that are kosher for Passover. My goals are simple– to foster mutual understanding between different cultures, to introduce you to my foodie friends, and to share yummy recipes and cooking ideas for Passover!

  1. Looking forward to it! This year we are taking a break from tradition and going Moroccan. Hoping you have some recipes in that direction!

  2. Do you know Joan Nathan’s “Mocha Cake Roll”? It’s gotta be one of the best Passover desserts ever! Nothing but chocolate, eggs, coffee, butter. It’s in her “Jewish Holiday Kitchen”, and my kids won’t go through Passover without it!

    Also, I have a recipe for Carrot Pudding from an Israeli cookbook that I make every year.

    4 oz. Butter or margarine
    8 tablespoons Matzo meal , About 1/2 cup
    3 tablespoons Potato starch
    8 tablespoons Sweet Red Wine, Scant 1/2 cup
    1 lb carrots, grated
    2 oz. raisins
    3 ½ ounces brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 lemon , juice and rind
    1 egg, beaten
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a medium casserole dish.
    2. Cream butter and matzo meal well.
    3. Dissolve potato starch in wine.
    4. Mix all ingredients together and bake in buttered casserole for about 1 hour.
    This is really good. The lemon makes it less sweet.

  3. Help! I need a recipe for passover quiche. I need a dairy meal for a lunch and I thought a quiche with cheese and eggs would be great. How do you get the matzo meal to make a crust?
    Help please.
