Post Seder Wrap Up

Passover 2010 Table 024

I finally finished setting the table. As you can see in the pictures I put multiple Seder plates on the table, so no one has to reach to far.

Dinner was absolutely fantastic last night. All of my weeks of preparation culminated in a dinner worth salivating over and Michael, my husband conducted a very informative and captivating oration of the story of the slave’s exodus from Egypt.  Passover after all, is the celebration of the slave’s liberation.  We all had a great time discussing wether or not the Jewish people conducted Seders in the 40 years they sojourned in the desert, after they did one the first year. We discussed many other questions as well, including why Moses is not mentioned in the text of the Haggadah (the book read at the seder table). 

We did not have too big of a crowd, only 13 diners in total. One of the guests, a woman born in England was absolutely the best reader with her Queen’s English pronunciation.  My sons and my nephews and a friend are all look very handsome and adult, a far cry from when they were little and running around the house in chaos at every holiday dinner.

 The menu was as follows:

Hillel Sandwiches on Shmura Matzo (matzo, Romain lettuce, horseradish, charoset)

Homemade Charoset

Homemade beet infused horseradish, wow, knock your socks off!! 

Huevos Haminados, hard boiled eggs with onion skins and olive oil

Homemade Gefilte Fish

Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls

Pluot Sorbet as pallet cleanser

Kufte de Prassa, leek meatballs

Felichikas, mushroom dumplings

Miniature Stuffed Chickens

Stuffed Veal Breast

Roasted Vegetables, miniature carrots, beets, cauliflower

Roasted heirloom baby potatoes


Marunchinos, Chocolate Coconut Cookies, Mustachudos


Vacherin with sorbet and strawberry rhubarb sauce

Chocolate Passover Brownies

Cake of Meringue layers, brownie layers and raspberry mousse layers

Coffee or Tea

Tonight, much to my delight, we are invited for the second Seder to cousin Pegi’s house for another all night eating, talking, and visiting celebration.
