The Jewish holiday of Passover is an annual one celebrated by two elaborate dinners called seders, followed by a week of abstaining from leavened foods. That means many typical menu items are off the table, leaving Jews to pick up dishes from the handful of spots offering Kosher-for-Passover items or make everything from scratch for over a week. Many stick to the latter to avoid anything not allowed, but plenty need help. Here’s where to turn in the Dallas area for a quality Passover spread.
