Ease the slavery at Pesach

No need to fret over what festival food you are going to serve this year, there is plenty of inspiration out there


If you are tired of trotting out the same old Pesach menu, year in, year out, you will be delighted with Paula Shoyer's book of Pesachdik recipes. The book offers not only ideas for Seder night, but also a series of menu suggestions as well as a section of inventive new bakes and desserts. And not only that, like buses, the Pesach recipes all came at once.

In the same week, e-book Helen's Delicious Pesach (available on Amazon, £16.79) landed in the JC Food email box. Cambridge-based blogger Helen Goldrein's colourful book includes breakfasts, like shakshuka, Israeli breakfast salad or spiced poached pears; main dishes, including smoked salmon dauphinoise and stuffed aubergines; potato dishes, side dishes and salads; and desserts and bakes. To help you meet the challenges of the festival's eight-day marathon, she has helpfully provided eight recipes in each section.
Finally, the Jewish Princesses have launched Jewishprincesscooks on YouTube. The first series is dedicated to Pesach and includes their Princess Passover pitta bread, cinammon baubles and bubbelahs.
