Our Passover Menu is available in the weeks before Passover each year. Zingerman’s Deli has a great Passover menu, featuring complete Seder meals with all the fixings and plenty of a la carte options, too, plus some delicious desserts from Zingerman’s Bakehouse and Zingerman’s Creamery.
Our Passover menu features many familiar dishes in the Ashkenazi cooking tradition—dishes like brisket, kugel and hand-made gefilte fish (some are even recipes from the grandmothers of our co-founders, Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig), but we also delve into Sephardic recipes. Our Yemenite charoset, for example, draws from the Arabian Peninsula and includes fresh ginger, almonds, apples, dates, raisins, and sweet kosher wine. We also serve the Ashkenazi recipe with apples and toasted walnuts that more commonly appears on the Jewish American table. “We enjoy paying homage to the two culinary traditions,” says Deli sous chef Andrew Wilhelme, adding that he prefers the “yummy” Yemenite.
