Passover-safe gourmet? Is it possible?
Dear fellow Chow-ers
Please save our family sanity, what there is of it. We need to have a 75th birthday celebration during Passover, in the Boston area. Does anyone know of a caterer, or wonderful take-out option that could satisfy chowhounds and religious observers alike? Thank you for your help!
Thanks for the cookie rec, Blumie
About a Passover meal, it's easier if it doesn't have to be kosher - the only decent kosher food I've found in town is Milk St Cafe, which will do a catering "drop" but it's pretty straightforward dairy lunch fare. And many glatt kosher places just close for Passover because it's too hard to comply in a commercial kitchen. (not sure if Milk St closes; website didn't say).
But if your meal just has to follow Passover rules and not necessarily come from a kitchen that is kosher and/or completely Passover compliant (which of course means faux Passover, or what the catering world calls "kosher style") I bet you'll find options in Brookline and Newton. You just need to be clear about just how strictly you're defining "kosher for Passover."
