Tired of the same old Passover recipes? Sick of making matzah sandwiches and snacking on stale macaroons? For those seeking to liven up their holiday fare, the Passover website of the Orthodox Union, http://www.oupassover.org, will once again this year offer valuable assistance to those preparing meals for the seder and the rest of the holiday by providing a large number of recipes together with other food-related features.
Throughout the year, the OU’s website and the OU’s weekly e-zine, Shabbat Shalom, offers readers recipes, food columns, and kitchen advice. As Passover approaches, these features take on a Passover slant so that those celebrating the holiday can utilize the site’s helpful hints, laws, and recipes adapted for Passover.
Eileen Goltz, author of the cookbook Perfectly Pareve, presents original recipes comprising a treasure trove of selections, including chicken, muffins, kugel, desserts, and salads. Recipes are meat, dairy or pareve (neither meat nor dairy).
Ms. Goltz is a freelance kosher food writer who was born and raised in the Chicago area. She graduated from Indiana University and the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris. She lectures on various food-related topics across the U.S. and Canada and writes weekly columns for the Chicago Jewish News, kosher.com and the OU Shabbat Shalom Web site http://www.ou.org. She is the author of the Perfectly Pareve Cookbook (Feldheim) and is a contributing writer for the Chicken Soup for the Soul Book Group, Chicago Sun Times, Detroit Free Press and Woman’s World Magazine.
