Passover is a yearly festival celebrated by people of the Jewish faith to mark remembrance of the story of the Exodus when the Israelites were freed from their Egyptian slavers. The date for passover is based on the Gregorian calendar and changes from year to year, falling on March 25 to April 2 this year. One of the most important observations during the Passover is that no leavened flour or grain can be consumed. For that reason, many recipes and food traditions have developed around recipes that are made this way. Whether you observe Passover every year or are new to Jewish traditions these adaptations on Passover favorites from local Chef Kate Cunning are sure to have you ready for the season.
