Passover is centered around the Seder plate. It’s rich with symbolism, meaning, and history. Whether you’re hosting a Seder this year or if you’re a guest, it’s important to know what goes on a Seder plate and why.

For your Passover menu, we have delicious recipes for classic beef brisket (along with sides for brisket), braised short ribs, and oven-roasted chicken. Classic favorites are here too, from matzo ball soup and fluffy potato kugel to the Ashkenazi Jewish side dish tzimmes.

While Passover is perhaps best known for the Seders, the holiday goes beyond the ceremonial meal. We have a post-Seder Passover meal plan to give you inspiration on what to cook. And don’t forget to make room for Passover desserts!
