Preparing a Passover seder (festive holiday meal that includes a retelling of the Jewish people’s exodus from slavery to freedom) can be an overwhelming task. While recounting the story, participants taste certain foods that symbolize parts of the journey. For example, matzah represents the bread that the Israelites ate while fleeing slavery. All that to say, there are a lot of moving parts and different foods to prepare. Most grocery stores carry the basics, but if you’re looking for something a little more robust, we’ve rounded up three places to get Passover meals.
