The Passover meal, or Seder, is both a joyous and solemn occasion and the food evokes so many childhood memories for Jews the world over.

Whether you choose to serve a traditional brisket cooked with root vegetables or go a more contemporary route with Salmon Cakes, a light hand with fats and salt and a deft touch with seasonings can keep your meal flavorful and satisfying.

The Passover meal is full of symbolic foods—bitter herbs, unleavened bread, cups of wine—used to enliven the narration of the ceremony. As Jewish cooking authority Jayne Cohen has written, “Because most of these foods are consumed, we actually taste the experience and ensure it will become a part of us.” These dishes will help make your Seder a memorable gathering for family and friends this Passover.
