You may remember last year when I attended the Austin Food & Wine Festival. It was so fun! Sadly, I can’t go this year because I’ll be out of town for a friend’s wedding (that part is not sad!) But I love food and wine so much, it’s like this event was made for me. Right?

So I won’t be there in person, but I can create my own Food & Wine Festival! I’m a genius. All I need is wine, and chocolate. I’m all about dark chocolate, so the 72% Twilight Delight Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate is right up my alley. 

For those of you lucky enough to attend, Ghirardelli will be there sampling their chocolate and pairing it with wine.  There will also be massages for the VIPs! Darrrnnn. I love my Ghirardelli with rich, fruity cabs and fresh raspberries. The combo is just so good!

Tell me about your Seders, y’all!! Our friends-Seder was so so fun, per usual. Thanks to a rowdy crew and Manischewitz cocktails! Those two may have been related.

Passover Recap

I really love Passover. The traditions, the food, an excuse for a dinner party, horseradish on everything and four glasses of wine required. What’s not to love? This year was even more special because I had so many Seder virgins join me! And it’s always fun explaining everything to newbies. (We are talking Passover here, people.) I made these adorable napkin holders to set the scene.

Passover 3

Vegetarian Chopped Liver as an appetizer!

Passover 5

My friends at Whole Foods gave me a slew of kosher products to try! The Aviv mini matzos, Yehuda Organic Matzos, and Glicks Macaroons were all especially delicious!

passover 2

I made a brisket recipe from 4 Bloggers Dish! Now I live in Texas, so people here know brisket. And most of my gentile friends had only had smoked brisket. But they loved my red wine braised version! Yay!!

Passover Recap

Of course there was Matzah Ball Soup. I added some turmeric and truffle salt to my balls at the last second. They were delicious! These photos are from Instagram btw if y’all want more of a peak into my food and a bit of personal life. But mostly food!

Passover Recap

For dessert there was my Flourless Chocolate Cayenne Cake. Always a winner!

Passover Recap

Here is a shot of the whole crew! Well minus a few stragglers. Not a dog in the bunch!

Passover Recap

For Elijah’s cup, I used this Margarita yard from Cancun. I can’t believe he turned this sucker down!

Passover Recap

Whole Foods also gifted me this kosher chicken which I think is the reason why my matzah ball soup was the best ever! Even the gentiles gobbled it all up. Oh yeah.

The ultimate Passover dessert. Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Matzah Truffles with Manischewitz Glaze. Let that sink in for a moment.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Matzo Truffles with Manischewitz Glaze

This is the second installment in my series for The Jewish Week now called The Remix, in which we seek to gently rework the more challenging dishes in the Jewish culinary canon. With a little bit of love, we’re convinced we can make any dish delicious, even ones seem bizarre to the modern palate.

The best part of Passover isn’t the four glasses of Manischewitz, it’s matzah pizza! Here is not one but TWO recipes for you. Because I love you.

Matzah Pizza

That’s right, I love matzah pizza. I could eat it for every Passover meal. And normal meals. You can’t stop me! Despite popular belief, the four glasses of Manischewitz is not the best part of the Seder (it’s the Manischewitz Jell-O shots!) Kiiidding. Unless you’re not. Then I’m not kidding either. Annnnyway. What’s the greatest way to follow up aforementioned Manischewitz Jell-O shots? Lots of Matzah Pizza. Aaaand we’re back. See how I did that?

Asian Mushroom Matzah Ball Soup

Matzo ball soup is a traditional Passover dish made with a rich stock, tons of vegetables and hearty matzo dumplings. In culinary terms, it’s freaking awesome. And Passover is nothing without it! Well, and the Manischewitz. And horseradish.
