What are you cooking for Passover this year? I have abandoned the Askenazic classics I grew up with in favor of Italian and Sephardic recipes.

My favorite haroset is the Luzzato family recipe, via Joan Nathan:

Venetian Haroset
• 1 1/2 cup chestnut paste
• 10 ounce dates, chopped
• 12 ounce figs, chopped
• 2 tablespoon poppy seeds
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
• 1/2 cup chopped almonds
• 1/2 cup pine nuts
• grated rind of 1 orange
• 1/2 cup golden raisins
• 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
• 1/2 cup brandy
• honey, to bind
Combine all ingredients, using just enough honey and brandy to make everything bind together. Makes 4 cups.

I will be having crispy braised pork belly on the night of the first seder. :blush:

Sounds like a tasty recipe you have there, Philos!

As long as you dip it in the bitter herbs, you should be okay

philo - what in the world are you going to do with 4 cups of haroset ?

Will be a bachelor the first part. Some friends are taking me in. I think I am in charge of making babas.

4 cups is insane. I usually make a half recipe.

You actually do a Seder? I always figures you to be as observant about things as I am.

I generally go to either family or friends. They can't get enough of me, it seems. Left to my own devices, I wouldn't even know passover was happening.

Same here. I just figured out it's God Friday this week as someone can't make a group happy hour do to that. :blush:

Although not an observant Jew anymore, I love Passover seder - wine, haroset, matzoball soup, chicken, and veggies. It's freakin' perfect. I suggest all you Jews take some leftover matzo and make matzo brei. And four cups of haroset, I could eat that in a day.

LCBO = Liquor Control Board of Ontario. It's the government run monopoly stores for purchasing wine and spirits. Not to be confused with The Beer Store which is the government run monoply store to buy beer in Ontario.

Of my usual passover friends, one couple just had a baby, one couple is out of town, one couple is going through some cheating drama that nobody wants to deal with, and the other is not fun enough on their own to warrant the effort. Probably nothing, sadly.
