The supermarket shelves are lined with matzo, and butchers are stocking up on brisket, which can only mean one thing: Passover is right around the corner. A weeklong celebration of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, Passover is notable for things you aren't allowed to eat (including leavened bread). But that doesn't mean this isn't a holiday for food lovers! The nightly feast is full of symbolic (and tasty) dishes.
If you're hosting or attending a seder this year, or if you just have a deep and profound love of latkes and lox, you may have questions. And we've got answers — or rather, Elizabeth Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz do. In the week leading up to Passover, the co-founders of The Gefilteria, a Brooklyn-based company specializing in (you guessed it) gefilte fish and other traditional Jewish foods, will be taking over our Good Questions column.
