Three ways to make Passover Preparation Easier and Cheaper

8 Apr

Preparing Your home for a Kosher Week of Passover can be daunting!

You can do it if you stay away from convenience foods

Delicious Stuffed Cabbage for Passover


Stuffed Cabbage for Passover

and concentrate on proteins and vegetables and a few side items.

Simple menus and a bit of home cooking will make it delicious…and far healthier as most “convenience” foods are way too high in salt, sugar and not the freshest ingredients, hence lower in nutritional value.
Let me know if you need the recipe including diced fresh tomatoes, ketchup
and diced onions/ (We just ate it tonight, yummy)

Secondly. Baked boxes of cookies and cakes are running $10 and more during Passover. Avoid this. With 4 egg whites salt(a pinch), and cocoa with optional chocolate chips and nuts make over 50 meringues. Brownies will need 4 eggs, potato starch, sugar cocoa and chocolate chips or nuts make Platters of brownies.

Use the KISS method, Keep it Simple. Roast veggies, mashed potatoes with caramelized onions.

Pesach Kosher Dinner Menus

8 Jan

I am starting to get calls about catering seders for groups for the Passpver seder. This year (2013/ 5773) Passover begins on March 26th. I am able to prepare food in my client’s home or kosher commercial kitchen. The most requested dinner items have traditionally been turkey or brisket. This year I have have been hearing from people looking at options at a lower cost (also healthier) such as shicken or capon..
I would of course prepare the traditional Seder plates, sides such as tsimmes and potato kugel,appetizer such as as gefilte fish and desserts as well as traditional matzoh ball soup. I have not figured out pricing exactly but we are probably talking about $36/per person with 10 or more people.

Celiac Gluten Free High Priced Flours

31 Dec

As I work with Gluten Free products, I am trying to figure out why the “flours” are so prohibitively expensive.  A five pound bag of regular wheat flour, white or whole wheat can be purchased for under $3.00. 

 

Yesterday, I scoped out prices of the gluten free flours at Whole foods in Boca Raton, Florida.

For one pound packages of the alternative flours,prices ranced from 2.79 for corn meal, $6.99 for Potato Flour (better to buy it amongst the kosher items, cheaper). teff flour $7,99 , 9A STAPLE IN eTHIOPIAN COOKING) AMARANTH FLOUR $7.95, AND MILLET FLOUR AT 3.49….

This obviously increases the costof all of the baked coods.

I did not see oat flour, srorghum, buckwheat or quinoa. as flours….

Of course, I buy my cornmeal by quaker Oats in the Baking aosle at the local grocery….

Would love some insighton these expensive products.
