Passover can be a delicious celebration

Passover is often viewed as a week of deprivation since it is customary to give up of specific foods, such as those made of the leavened flour of five grains: wheat, barley, spelt, rye, and oats. However, Passover can be a delicious endeavor with the growing array of foods and recipes suited for a Seder and the holiday week. Check out these Passover food products that make a Seder easy.

Kosher wine

Whether you are hosting a Seder or are attending as a guest and want to take a bottle of kosher wine for the occasion, today's kosher wines are extraordinary. If you've been turned off by kosher wines of the past – or just want to learn more about newer varieties – be sure to read It's not your grandmother's kosher wine.

Hosting a vegetarian Seder
