An Aussie Passover.  There is not much difference between American and an Australian Passover recipes, but I am The Aussie Gourmet and these are my favorite Passover recipes.

Passover is a busy holiday for me.  Enjoy some of the most requested Passover dishes from my home to yours.

This is my mother Miriam Stein’s recipe, all the way from Sydney, Australia. She is famous for this fabulous dip. When I asked her for the recipe, she could only tell me, “shitz arein.” A little of this, a little of that—you know the expression. I reconstructed the recipe and I think mum would be proud.

I was introduced to quinoa by my cousin, Shelly Serber of West Hempstead (also formerly of Sydney, Australia). Shelley has an intolerance for wheat and is always looking for great gluten-free recipes. She makes this quinoa tabouli; I had to add it to my repertoire and it’s also quite perfect for Pesach.
