The Jewish holiday of Passover is coming up next Monday (it begins at sundown) and that means there’s a lot of preparations to do if you’ve been saddled with hosting the family this year. I have 2 words for you: Passover Take-Out.
If the multiple trips to the airport and all your relatives don’t exhaust you, the cooking of the brisket and matzo ball soup, the dish everyone has a (strong) opinion about, will surely take you over the edge. Don’t sweat it, just order out.
You have the more traditional route: Miller’s East Coast Delicatessen. You have the fancy gourmand Seder: Bi-Rite Market. And then you have the hipster twist: Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen. (Sorry, for Wise Sons you needed to have placed your Passover order by April 12).
My advice? Put everything in bowls as soon as you bring it home and then dump the containers in the recycling bin outside immediately and just don’t mention to anyone else that’s it catered.
