  1. Evan Kleiman is doing this dinner at the Skirball Center:
    This special Passover dinner, served family-style, will reflect the bounty of the spring garden. Wine will be available for purchase, and select recipes will be provided. This meal is not certified kosher.


    Haroset: dates, dried Turkish apricots, oranges, raisins, nuts, spices, romaine lettuce

    Pesce en carpione: Sautéed white fish marinated with caramelized onions, in a mustard-champagne vinaigrette

    Pollo arrosto: Chicken cooked in garlic, rosemary, and lemon

    Tortino di azzime: A “mazzagna” of vegetables and fresh tomato-basil sauce

    Pot roast

    Leek croquettes

    Citrus and olive oil Passover cake with a citrus-honey syrup

    1. At the Four Season's Los Angeles:
      Chef Mette Williams has created a four-course dinner menu at Culina, Modern Italian that family and friends are sure to delight in.

      The menu melds traditional offerings with Italian influences, beginning with charoset, a medley of chopped apples, walnuts, blueberries, cranberries and citrus; followed by a choice of antipasti of kale with garbanzo beans, marinated artichokes and sundried tomato; or chicken liver with crisp potato and chives. Guests will enjoy a holiday favourite: matzah ball soup with chicken and vegetable broth infused with lemon sage.

      The main course will feature guest’s choice of roasted Jidori Chicken with heirloom carrots, smashed horseradish and chive potatoes; grilled branzino with San Marzano tomato sauce; or braised beef short rib with mushroom risotto.

      The meal concludes with decadent desserts, such as Mallorcan almond cake with macerated strawberries and sorbet; or a chocolate budino with caramel sea salt and a coconut macaroon.

      The four-course Passover dinner is USD 60.00 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. Sommelier wine pairings and cocktails are available upon request. Seating will be offered from 6:00 to 10:30 pm on Monday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

      Culina, Modern Italian is located at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.

      1. Lenny's Deli in Westwood is doing a special meal. Here is the menu: $27.95 per person.
