Baby’s First Seder

IMG_4338

Back in college, the dining hall permitted groups of kids to sign up for a “catered” Passover dinner. It was bring your own haggadah, and bring your own Manichevitz, but the dining hall managed to deliver cartons of inedible matzoh balls, strange roasted chicken, and surprisingly not-terrible potatoes. All in all, these seders turned out to be pretty good parties. For those of us Jews who can’t make the pilgrimage back to the homeland, here’s a menu to help you throw your first at-home seder—with good food, haggadah coloring books, and too much wine.

Potato Kugel with Sauteed Shallots

Passover Brisket

String Beans with Mustard Dressing

Matzoh Crunch

Chocolate Chip Macaroons

Manichevitz

    Depending on the level of religion neither mustard nor string beans are considered kosher for passover. These are both considered kitniyot (a category including rice, corn, and soy beans, which are not forbidden by the Torah
    during Passover). String beans are however debatable so it is always best to refer to your rabbi.
