Passover Recipes

Here are a few of my best recipes for Passover, from the ultimate matzoh ball soup and my grandmother’s chopped chicken liver to roasted lamb and flourless chocolate desserts. Just a warning: I don’t keep kosher in my house, so not all of these recipes are kosher-friendly.

Braised Beef Brisket

I like a whole brisket because you want the fatty nose of the wide end to help keep the roast moist and because I like to roast whole briskets, what can I say? Get the recipe >>>



Lamb with Pickled Cherries

Chocolate Pot de Crème

This sinfully decadent chocolate version is easy to prepare, and perfect for dinner parties since you can make it ahead and refrigerate until you’re ready for dessert. Get the recipe >>>
