So there are certain traditional foods that just scream “Passover” to me. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure!
1. Egg Lokshen
Since flour-base noodles are out, many people make thin crepe-like pancakes out of eggs and potato starch, which they then roll up and cut into strips, forming kosher-for-Passover noodles (“lokshen” in Yiddish) which taste marvelous in chicken soup.
At one time, this kind of wine was so ingrained as a Jewish wine preference that Schapiro’s Wine advertised (in Yiddish) that their wine was so thick you could almost cut it with a knife! Thankfully, there are hundreds of high-quality kosher wines out there, but we respect the traditionalists who like the old thick stuff.
What are your favourite Passover Foods? I hope you have them this holiday and I wish you and yours a healthy and happy Passover! Chag Kosher v’Samayach!
