For My Jewish Readers
So, Passover is coming next week, and I have two Passover related items to post about. One is an article I've written that is appearing in the current issue of the Los Angeles Jewish Journal. It is about non-traditional seder foods, and includes three recipes. Any of you, Jewish or not, who enjoy cooking might want to check it out.
I've been making my own seder for about eight years now (though I ironically will not be making one this year), and I never really enjoyed cooking the "same old" foods. So I've always experimented with other good dishes that still remain within the bounds of what is kosher for Passover. The article is HERE.
Also related to food, eating, seders, and Passover, the film When Do We Eat? is about to open this weekend, in a platform release. I saw the film a number of months ago, and I really enjoyed it. Plus I have a few friends who were involved with it (one has a song over the closing credits, and a few others appear in a scene or two). It is not the greatest film ever made, but it is definitely a fun and funny film, that should appeal to Jews and gentiles alike. Here is some info that I'm simply cutting and pasting from an email I received from my friend:
From the director:

So, check it out! It has something of the tone and style of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and it features the inimitable Jack Klugman! Enjoy.
And now, for both the above reasons, it is time to eat!
