Passover Food Therapy From The Jew and the Carrot

God help me — this year I’m hosting my first Passover seder.

I’ll be documenting my experience as the week progresses but let’s just say I’m lucky my mother and I get along–she’ll be sorry she said she’d walk me through.

As I scour websites for recipes and advice, I keep on coming back to the Jew and the Carrot. Whether the topic is Iraqi beet stew or egg creams, it’s a great site for all of your pre-holiday menu-mulling.

Any Passover sites you’d like to share? Comment below or tweet us @pubradiokitchen!
