Matzo - Michele Heilbrun

Staff Pick

Where has this cookbook been my entire life? Luckily the author -- a descendant of the Streit matzo founder -- came up with dozens of creative Passover recipes. From breakfast treats like blueberry & cheese blintzes made with matzo meal (page 23), to Caesar salad with matzo ball croutons (41), to Moroccan matzo stuffing (57), there are modern classics like matzo brei and new creative recipes. There is a whole chapter with mouthwatering desserts, two words that rarely come to mind at Passover meals! These recipes are so good that they may just find a place at the table after the 8 day holiday is over.
