The Great Shabbat Menu

This week is Shabbat Hagadol (translated as the great Shabbat), it is the Shabbat that precedes Passover and is connected to the miracles that happened in Egypt.  Since this Shabbat falls so close to Passover, many homes are already kashered and we are tasked to create a fabulous meal without any bread or any matzo.  Hopefully you will be able to get some Challah to enjoy and then try this menu that can be made before, during and after Passover and still be considered great.
