Communal Seder Menus from the Nosher

It’s finally here! All week we’ve been showering you with our favorite Passover recipe from our favorite chefs and bloggers. And now we’ve compiled all those recipes to give you menus for both seders. The planning is done! From Charoset to gefilte fish to chocolate truffle pie, we’ve got you covered. And stay tuned, because we have even more recipes coming up next week. Those recipes can be slotted into your seder if any of these aren’t your style, or you can use them to plan what to make during the week of Passover, when the seders are over and you’re just looking to make something tastier and more exciting than matzah with cream cheese.

Enjoy! And Happy Passover!
