The Passover Seder is annual celebration, an opportunity to connect with family and friends over heaping plates of Jewish comfort food. This year, of course, things are very different and I’m sure there are many out there missing the conviviality and comfort of this special meal. And you certainly don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy some fabulous home cooking. So we’ve invited the fabulous Alissa Kondogiannis to put a bubbe’s worth of love and care into a delicious Friday night dinner of passover favorites, ready & waiting for you to pick up at our window.
Matzah Ball Soup
A rich golden vegetable broth, with tender matzah balls and slivers of chicken
(Note: chicken omitted for #vegetarian meals; matzah balls contains egg, gluten)
Garlic Honey Brisket with Roasted Root Vegetable Tzimmes
A seder classic, beef brisket slow cooked for hours until melting tender, with a dark gravy infused with roasted garlic and honey. Served with Tzimmes, a traditional medley of roasted carrots and sweet potatoes made studded with apples, dates and apricots, and a Hungarian cucumber salad flecked with slivers of red onion and dill. (Note: this brisket is not certified kosher for passover)
Root Veg Dafina with Quinoa
Dafina is the Sephardic (Mediterranean Jewish) version of the much loved Ashkenazi (Eastern European Jewish) dish, cholent. Both are a slow cooked stew of hearty vegetables traditionally meant to cook overnight on a Friday so they can be eaten without additional preparation on the sabbath. Dafina is similar to other North African braises like tagines, fragrant with warm spices like turmeric, cinnamon & cumin. Served with a light pilaf of quinoa and a cool cucumber salad. (#vegan, #GF)
Passover double chocolate brownies with coconut chocolate frosting
Dark, decadent and delicious, these brownies are made with matah meal, semi-sweet chocolate, and a rich coconut cream and chocolate frosting. (contains eggs, gluten)

Alissa Kondogiannis has a small business in the north of the city that mainly caters sabbath meals on Fridays. Though she was brought up Ashkenazi, she truly believes she has a Sephardic heart and it comes out in most of her cooking. Passover food is the one time where she tries to recreate the tastes of her Hungarian grandmother and makes traditional Eastern European food. In addition to Friday night meals, she also teaches challah and babka making classes.
