Just as Passover is about the story of the Jewish peoples' exodus from Egypt, there is a (less epic) story behind this post as well. In putting together our Passover menu, we were hyper-aware of the fact that the Passover meal comes with many rules and rituals, and in the interest of getting it right, we sought help from a few of our practicing friends (hi, Rivka!). Though the debate was friendly and genial, debate there was! Turns out, as with so many religious events, peoples' Passover traditions are both widely varied and closely held.

This menu is a suggestion, a delicious idea -- we've stayed away from the mixing of meat and dairy, and of course, from leavened bread, but we've included a roasted meat, which is a no-no in some sects -- so take our menu as a starting point. Feel free to adapt it, to cherry pick, and tell us about your Passover traditions in the comments!
