Passover is my Holiday
Years ago, when we first moved into our first house, I decided that Passover was our holiday. It seemed that it was enough time for me to recover from New Years (also my holiday) and a great start to what was about to be the BBQ/Grilling season (also my entire season).
Passover always seemed like a perfect start to the spring and I always loved to celebrate it with the perfect combination of fresh and bright flavors and earthy spices. A way to say good-bye to the cold and yellow to the freshness of the spring. These 15 Passover recipes are tried and true not only by me but by every one of my company chefs and many more of my clients.
These Passover recipes are so much more than JUST Passover recipes. They are recipes that you can use on any weeknight, weekend or holiday in any season. They can be dressed up for Passover or dressed down for Thursday night dinner.
These 15 Passover recipes you WILL want to make all year long!
This may not be the star of the show…but it is always an opening number. It warms you up and gets you ready for the remainder of the dinner.
There is a reason this baby is called the star of the show. Because it REALLY is! I swear every time I make this brisket it is always so impressive to me that this came out of MY oven. I know…even I am impressed! Low and slow cooking was never my forte, so when I came up with this brisket that is so ridiculously easy, incredibly well flavored and perfectly cooked I smiled in glee.
BUT most importantly guys… my brisket is FREEZER ENCOURAGED, I am not trying to sound crazy here. I ENCOURAGE you to make this. Something magical happens with it when it’s frozen and then reheated…and perfection is achieved. Trust me it’s the real deal.
This cous cous is such a perfect side dish for any protein on your table or great on its own! Plus you can make it a day before and reheat it with a little extra butter before serving. Or since it only takes 10 minutes to make… Just make it right before serving. Cut up all your aromatics first and put them on the side. Then when you are setting the appetizers and soup out, get the cous cous going and it will be ready right when you are ready for the entree.
These just go so great with the Thomas Kellar Chicken and with the brisket. Plus they are EVERY vegan or vegetarian’s dream! And they also are made ahead of time and reheated the day of.
