Jewish Brisket for the Holidays

Passover dinner, or seder, is one of the Jewish holidays that call for celebrating with family and friends. There is so much history and symbolism associated with the holiday, and so many foods as well. Brisket, charoset, and, of course, matzoh, as nothing leavened can be eaten according to the Jewish dietary laws. Thank goodness for nut-free flourless chocolate cake!

If you are a Kosher household, or keeping Kosher for the holidays than you should be sure to check your menu as you pull it together to make sure it follows the laws of Kashrut (no mixing of meat and dairy, no leavened bread or fermented grain products {chametz}).

If you are just looking to create a menu that feels festive and Passover-ish in nature, then perhaps your menu won’t be strictly Kosher, but it will feel like the holidays nonetheless.
