Passover is an important holiday filled with celebration, family, and of course — delicious food.

For years, we have been catering all types of special Jewish occasions, like Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Passover (and we love catering special events, like Bar and Bat Mitzvahs!).

The Passover holiday will begin on April 20th, this year. The eight-day festival commemorated and celebrates the Jewish people’s freedom from slavery in Egypt.

Hosting Passover can require a lot of preparation and time in the kitchen. And extra time is a precious commodity that not many of us have. Instead of stressing over the menu and spending all day prepping and cooking, let us take care of this celebratory meal for you!

The Passover Meal: Traditional With A Twist

The Passover meal is an extremely important component of this particular Jewish holiday.

When the Jewish people left Egypt, they didn’t have time to wait for their bread to rise. The tradition of eating unleavened bread (or also known as Matzah bread) is one that has remained part of the meal.

It is with these traditions in mind, that we have crafted a specialized menu for the Passover holiday, which incorporates old tradition with a new twist of flavor.
