Welcome to the April 7, 2008 edition of kosher cooking carnival.
Thanks to Batya for all of her hard work on the KCC. She will be hosting the May edition; WestBankMama in June. Contact Batya if you’d like to host. And thanks to all of the bloggers who contributed and submitted entries, including those who dragged out their Pesach cookbooks a little early.
Purim already seems like a long time ago, but you can save these for next year:
Learn about the traditional Purim food with The Origins of Hamentashen in Jewish Literature (Revisited) posted at the Seforim blog.
Kreplach is another traditional food for Purim. The New York Times presents Missing Ingredient, Gone for Good – New York Times posted at NYT > Dining & Wine.
Keep this for the next time you’re invited to a latke-hamantashen debate. Tip Diva presents Top Ten Tips – Winning The Debate posted at Tip Dude.
Getting rid of Chametz
Traditional Jews clear out their pantries to get rid of chametz (leavened foods) and make way for the Passover food.
Preparing for Pesach
This year Passover begins on Saturday evening, April 19 and continues through Saturday evening, April 26. Those outside of Israel observe an additional day, Sunday, April 27. This year the preparations for the festive Passover meal are more challenging because observant Jews must finish all of the preparations for Passover a day early because of the Sabbath.
