Planning the Perfect Passover and Easter Meals

With Passover and Easter quickly approaching, the pressure is on to get your menu together for your next holiday meal. If you don’t want to spend the day in the kitchen scrambling to pull dishes together, we’ve got you covered. Our hand-selected Passover and Easter picks make it easy for you to pull together a meal that will be sure to please your family!

Passover

Potato Latkes

To kick off your Passover feast, consider starting with Ziggy’s Gourmet Latkes. These crisp potato and onion pancakes made kosher-style for Passover are sure to make Bubbe proud! If you are looking for another popular Passover dish, Kenny & Ziggy’s also makes a delicious Passover Gefilte Fish served with their homemade red horseradish.

For the main course, let Traditional Braised Brisket be the star of the show. The tender and flavorful beef raised without hormones, antibiotics, or steroids is served with root vegetables and prunes to round out your holiday meal. If you are looking for lighter fare, order Wild Alaskan King Salmon. Caught near Sitka, Alaska, this salmon is full of heart-healthy Omega 3’s.

If you still have room for dessert, Craveable Hospitality Group’s PieCaken-inspired PassCaken Passover Cake. Your guests won’t be able to turn down layers of coconut macaroon pie, flourless Valrhona chocolate cake, and raspberry mousse topped with a chocolate and sea salt coated matzo crumble. If you want to tone down your dessert a notch, Pretzel Perfect makes a Passover-Friendly Chocolate Dipped Matzo. These sweet treats feature matzo bites dipped in House Signature Blend Chocolate and coated with a topping of your choice: toffee, toffee and almond, or Belgian chocolate sprinkles.

Easter

Black Forest Ham

Your holiday meal wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t serve Easter bread. Ferrara Bakery’s house-baked braided Casatella Bread represents birth and the circle of life. For something with a little more variety, Tarry Market’s Antipasti Platter is the perfect pre-meal spread. The assortment of Italian antipasti specialties includes mixed salumi, cheeses, vegetables, and crackers.

For your main course, Pulaski Meats Black Forest Ham is a great option for a traditional Easter meal. Hand-rubbed with spices, smoked for 12 hours, and hand-trimmed by expert butchers trained in Old World traditions, this ham is prepared with the same care and concern as a home-cooked meal. If you are feeling adventurous, venture instead with the All-Madden Turducken. Made famous by John Madden, this turkey, duck, and chicken dish is layered with sausage stuffing and cornbread dressing.

We hope you wore pants with an elastic waistband, because we have some great dessert options to finish off your meal. Made with raisins, walnuts, pineapple, and coconut, Carousel Cakes’ Carrot Spice Layer Cake goes above and beyond its name. For a traditional Italian take on your dessert, Colomba Pasquale is the perfect choice. A sweet, fluffy bread baked in the shape of its namesake, “easter dove,” the pasquale is made throughout Italy as a part of Easter celebrations.
