THIS YEAR in Israel!

Seder:IsraelThe spiritual odyssey to find freedom – voiced for generations by proclaiming “Next Year in Israel” – achieved the pinnacle at this year’s Fish skewersPassover Seder at ChezHelvetica. Propelled by an upcoming trip to Israel by some guests and the incredible recipes in Yotam Ottelenghi’s “Jerusalem” (noted with *), the theme for our menu unfolded. Israeli Charoset, with Apples, Bananas, Pistachios, Walnuts and Almonds covered Yehuda Matzos, accompanied by White and Red Horseradish. Grilled Fish Skewers with Hawayej Spice Mix*, paired with La Crema Chardonnay, was the first course, followed by Clear Chicken Soup with Knaidlach* and its fragrant aroma of Ginger, Thyme Falafel:Hummusand Rosemary. Our honored guest (originally from Israel and celebrating a milestone birthday this very day), provided the most incredible Falafel, Hummus and Israeli Salad ever tasted. Luscious Fried Cauliflower with Tahini* and Couscous with Tomatoes and Onion* accompanied Middle Eastern Skewers of Lamb and Chicken. Robert Sinskey Pinot Noir, Cline Old Vines Zinfandel and Layer Cake Shiraz filled the “mandated” cups of wine for the heartwarming evening. A decadent Chocolate Cake from Tartine Bakery was the surprise dessert for this very special occasion!
