“Simple and elegant–my favorite combination,” wrote Ina Garten, author of The Barefoot Contessa, the other day on Instagram. She was describing her approach to table setting, but this combination resonates with me, too, both in terms of aesthetics (I’m not about to spend money on table settings!) and how I cook (well, most of the time). Try as I might, it’s hard to keep this vision in sight when the holidays roll around. As if large gatherings and special diets weren’t tricky enough, there’s kosher for passover rules to mitigate!
One of our favorite Jewish chefs, Ina Garten (nee Rosenberg) was born and raised in Brooklyn and definitely knows her way around the kosher for Passover kitchen. From matzah ball soup to roasted potatoes and coconut macaroons, she’s got your back.
