In another part of the forest

The other great motif of Pesach in Israel is the repulsive "Pesach bread", made out of matza meal, which figures on kosher for Passover menus all over the country.

It seems to have been born out of a belief that Israelis will lose the will to live unless they can have bread - or at least, fake bread - with every single meal.

There is no easy way to say this but Pesach bread is a crime against food. Occasionally, it is even rendered to look like bread, but most normal people reckon it tastes closer to cottonwool or cardboard than anything that you might actually want to eat.

People, rise up as one and reject this horrid thing. Honestly, matza is ok for a week. Down with Pesach bread.

As well you know, in Israel over Pesach they say Hamotzie Lechem me'ha'freezer. And anyway, those who eat pitot during the festival are probably right, because who honestly thinks that the unleaven bread of the desert was Rakusen-esque?
