Passover is one of our favorite holidays. Why? It's all about eating: three sheets of matzah, two Seder meals, gefilte fish, matzah brei...you name it! And, personally, it's all delicious. This year's holiday was an especially busy time for J2Food. Not only was there cooking to be done for two large Seders, but each of us hosted a Shabbat dinner in a different city across the country from each other! The first was the "Judios Unidos Seder" in Philadelphia featuring a delicious, Latin spin on the traditional Seder. The menu featured flavorful dishes like ropa vieja, "gefilte fish" ceviche, rice and beans and more.
Our second Passover Shabbat dinner was "Shabbat On The Bayou" in New Orleans' French Quarter, a special Cajun edition of Pop Up Foodie Shabbat with a bold menu of matzah meal fried chicken, spicy chicken and sausage gumbo, braised greens and more. Big flavor in the Big Easy! The food ended up being delicious, and might have to become a regular event!
