Try Our Perfect Passover Meal from Joan Nathan

Time to raise a glass of wine and break out the chocolate-covered matzo for this year’s Passover Seder. Joan Nathan, Jewish food authority—and James Beard Award–winning cookbook author—has returned this year to design our Passover Dinner for 8. Inspired by countless Passover Seders, Jewish food from her travels around the world and recipe development for her many cookbooks, she blends tradition with unique, new spins to turn her holiday meals into a culinary celebration. Whether you don’t have time to cook or just want to spend more time enjoying loved ones, it’s a convenient solution that results in a delicious Seder.

Salmon Gefilte Fish with Chrain

This is the gefilte fish that changes people’s minds about gefilte fish. Individual servings of gently poached salmon cakes with a horseradish and beet sauce are sure to please everyone at the table.

Apple Pecan Charoset

A twist on traditional charoset, a Seder plate staple — Joan uses pecans instead of walnuts. Spoon this warmly aromatic blend of apples, pecans, red wine and cinnamon onto your matzo.

Wine-Braised Brisket

We worked on this brisket with Joan until it was just right. Juicy beef brisket, braised fork-tender in red wine. No added growth hormones and no antibiotics, ever. Finish by serving slices of the brisket with its cooking liquid.

Asparagus with Citrus and Herbs

Sliced orange, parsley, mint, tarragon and a preserved lemon vinaigrette top fresh asparagus for a vibrant spring-inspired side.

Traditional Tzimmes

Sweet potatoes, carrots, apricots and prunes are gently stewed together for this sweet, traditional favorite.

Potato Kugel

Grated potatoes, leeks, spinach and egg come together in individual crispy and savory casseroles.
