Passover is a time of celebration and within the bounds of what is kosher, the traditional Passover food is much beloved as well as delicious and you can either make it yourself or go get it somewhere.
The video with this post was actually filmed at a famed NYc Restaurant ‘Eighty One’ which is now closed but it is such an exhuberant celebration of Passover food by the 3 guys in the film that it is a must see. Find out the difference between a sinker and a floater when it comes to matzo balls for starters.
And there is reference to amazing sweet dishes made from the most unlikely food combinations.
This year in NYC you will find a range of places selling great Passover food including many variations of the chocolate covered matzo.
There is for instance Tribeca Treats which sells a mean Chocolate buttercrunch matzo and Jacques Torres Chocolate at the rockefeller Center which sells matzo covered in dark chocolate with plain, peanut butter, or ‘Wicked’ spicy coating,see here.
Russ & Daughters in LES sell chocolate covered macaroons, fruit slices, flourless chocolate cake and chocolate covered jelly rings, Sugar and Plumm in the UWS has a large range of yummy sweet cookies and chocolate matzo butterscotch. LIKE passover food of all kinds at all times, yum, yum.
