The first Seder of Passover week is tonight. Like many other major religious holidays, this ancient celebration is full of symbolism and meaning represented by food. From the unleavened bread to the bitter herbs and sweet charoset, each bite from the Seder plate tells a story. Do you celebrate Passover? Will you attend, or host, a Seder tomorrow night?
The Seder plate, of course, is just part of the meal — the Passover meal has many traditions and dishes that are as meaningful and rich with history as the traditional American Thanksgiving meal, or the British Christmas feast.
What are you serving (and eating) this Passover? Here are a few recipes from our archives that would go well on the Passover table.
