Kasher LePesach Recipes

Chocolate Marquis Batons

 

With Pesach around the corner, one of our members shared a delicious recipe from Chef Nir Elkayam, the executive chef at Jerusalem’s luxury hotel, the Inbal.  This recipe proves that ‘Kosher for Passover” can still be synonymous with tasty. The Passover food challenge is creating appealing and ‘normal’ dishes despite the heavy restrictions on ingredients that Kosher for Passover products mandate.

Below is the recipe for Chocolate Marquis Batons
