Passover Seder Menus 2010

Hi Shiksa Friends! I’ve compiled all of my Passover recipes and created two Passover menus to help you plan your Seder meal (because that’s how much I love you!!). The first menu is Ashkenazi (no kitniyot), the second is Sephardi (kitniyot included). Each dish is a link; click on it and you’ll be taken to the recipe. If you’re not strictly against kitniyot, I suggest mixing and matching from the two menus, Ashkephardic-style… that’s what we do in our home, and it makes for a really interesting, delicious meal.

Wondering what I’ll be cooking for my 50 Seder guests on Monday evening? Sign up for Twitter and follow me:


I’ll be live-tweeting the Seder meal! Would love to “tweet” with all of you and hear how things are going. It’s more fun to cook as a team, right?  :)

I’ve also included a list of Passover-friendly recipe options at the end of this blog. Comment me and let me know what you’re making for your Seder!

    I followed your menu TO THE LETTER. I had NO IMAGINATION. It was HEAVEN!!!! I didn’t have to think about anything except buying the food on your blog. I printed up the whole page, went to the farmer’s market, shopped my tush off, and got to work. I just went down the list and got cooking. It was the BEST SEDER EVER. The matzoh ball soup? Amazing. I did some Ashki, some Sephardi, all delicious. You were my secret weapon. Keep it coming!!!! And bless bless bless you.

  6. Hey Tori,

    Just wanted to let you know we all had your charoset balls around here last week and they were the hit of the seder. No one had ever heard of them before and we all loved them. Thanks for your bog and your great suggestions!
