After a lovely reenactment of the story of Passover in which we each played an important role of either Moses, God or the King, we then had our first Passover dinner experience. I do believe it far surpassed the traditional Passover dinner requirements.
Pearl and her mama, Sandy, hosted a lovely feast that included the following:
Lotso matzo, pate, horochete (sweet apple nut relish), and hot pink beet horseradish!
Gifilte fish made with fresh salmon and halibut. (I may or may not have thought there was actually a fish swimming the seas that was called a gilfilte fish, until yesterday).
WAY better than the jarred stuff…not that I’ve had the jarred stuff, but I can only imagine.
(See the fish shape?!)
Matzo ball soup that blew. my. mind.
Three flavors of matzo: Tomato basil, spinach and turmeric flavored matzo balls.
I’ll never be able to eat regular matzo balls again.
And finally, brisket and veggies.
So moist, so tender, melt in your mouth, delicious.
Apologies for the missing dessert pictures but I was soooo excited about the macaroons and matzo crack that I completely forgot the photo!
SO, the moral of the story is everyone should have this foodie experience at least once in their lives. It is so much fun and all the food is fabulous! Plus, there is more wine involved than you could ever imagine…
