It's time to grab a bagel or a cookie or a hunk of bread -- and start menu planning. Because next week is Passover, and for the first two nights you'll be snacking on matzoh and parsley and hard boiled eggs, and you'll be counting the minutes until it's that time of the night to feast. Here is our idea of the perfect Passover seder -- some classic dishes, some new ones, all ones to look forward to as you read the Haggadah.

An added explanation: most Ashkenazi limit their fennel restrictions to seeds, but some very observant also refrain from the bulb. My take is that fennel the vegetable is perfectly fine and delicious.

These recipes look great. While the cauliflower "couscous" and fennel/onion/orange salad work for Sephardic Jews, many Ashkenazi Jews refrain from cumin, za'atar (due to sesame seeds), and fennel. I hope this info helps!

coucous is not acceptable for Passover since it is made with flour
