As someone who experienced her first seder at age three months, I cannot tell you how lovely it is to see the experience through your eyes (and taste buds!). Thank you for this story.


This is really a great lesson in food, history and tradition. I am excited to read the comments as they come in and also to share it with all who attended our seder on Monday. Thanks for the tribute, the lasting memories and the gift of your friendship. I am one lucky girl!


Your wordsmithing and your ability to absorb all that went on in connection with our favorite holiday is truly impressive.
why not tell about your mascara running down your face as you took the horseradish out of the food processor: laughing while crying!
How come such short shrift to Jerry's great golf round!
You are wonderful friends.
Traditionally at the conclusion of the Seder we say "Next year in Jerusalem"
You can count on Next year in Palm Harbor!

Great post! I am really enjoying seeing the Passover traditions out in the blogosphere. Though our family is Catholic, I really appreciate others who make their faith integral to their lives and their food!


This was my first Seder too; but growing up Catholic and in Southern California, I had little idea what to expect. Matzo balls and gefilte fish always seemed more like an ethnic curse my few Jewish friends had to endure than what I found they really are: very good eating and especially as part of a wonderful and rich tradition that connects family and friends. It was wonderful to be included.

I have never participated in a Seder, and so I'm grateful to see your posting. A fascinating religious tradition, and a fascinating food history as well!


How I wish I could write! What a wonderful description of Ronnies Seder and the pictures are fantastic.
It was beautiful evening.

Thank you.


It was great fun to watch you and Ronnie cook and a pleasure to have you and Jerry participate in the Seder.


What a wonderful post; I love the way you weave the history and cultural bits in with the personal story. And everyone is making this matzoh brittle - I have got to try it next year when I can get matzoh again (unless I see some on a sale table this year!) It looks so good.
