Lidia Loves Passover (and Weddings!)

Last year I had the honor of attending a Passover Seder with food author Ruth Reichl and the fourth-generation owners of the specialty food shop Russ & Daughters. We feasted on smoked salmon, charoset, chicken soup with matzo balls, and, of course, beef brisket and horseradish.

Ruth claimed that her mother was the world’s worst cook, but Miriam Reichl’s Corned Beef Ham proves otherwise. I know some of you might be thinking, but you can’t eat ham on Passover! Fear not; “ham” describes a cut of meat from the thigh of a hind leg of any animal, not necessarily a pig. Tutti a tavola a mangiare!
