The New York Times Passover Cookbook : More Than 200 Holiday Recipes from Top Chefs and Writers

1-Thank you Tammy Parker- Your sushi looks so authentic! Love your Mishloach Manot idea!

“Rice Krispies, Sour Sticks, Nibs, Fruit by the Foot, marshmallows and gummy candies for the sushi, thinly sliced pink jelly beans for the ginger, green tinted fondant for wasabi, and chocolate “soya” sauce. Packed in authentic sushi containers, with chopsticks.” Tammy Parker

 2-Another great Mishloach Manot idea by Tammy Parker!

“Corn on the cob cupcakes in corn holder, hot dog cookie in hot dog holder (with chocolate hamantach), watermelon plate, checkered “tablecloth” napkin and a juice box in a cardboard bakery box with a handle on top for easy transport” Tammy Parker

3-Thank You Anna Herz!- “Hi Marlene, This is how we do it in Great Neck, NY! My husband and I keep kosher – so this tastes (according to our non Jewish friends ) just like pork prosciutto. We cure it ourselves. Tastes like bacon when dried but not smokey.”

4- “My mishloach manot is a humble but practical package that includes pasta sauce, pasta and Halutza olive oil. The oil is produced in Israel and it is available from israeliproducts.com“. Miriam Kairey

5- “Hi Marlene, Just wanted to share what I did for mishloach manot this year. I opted for something simple yet elegant.  I used mason jars and layered hot cocoa mix, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and Oreo cookies.  I covered the jars with fabric and suede cord, made simple instructions which I secured under the lid, printed some labels, and Voila! Hot cocoa in a jar!! Thanks, Dalia Dabah “

6- “Hi Marlene! This year I worked from the bottom up – Started off with a miniature wok, added mixed vegetable sushi with spicy mayo on the side, malt bear in coordinating colors, green tea, a mandarin orange, and a fortune cookie. I finished it off with chop sticks and a poem tying my theme all together! Happy Purim!! From Ilene S.”



7- “This was my friend Marjorie Eida’s idea. I bought the olive oil holder, jar, and cheese holder form Amazing Savings. There’s also a little chefs knife if you can see the handle in the pic. The olive oil was infused with garlic and rosemary, and herbs. In the little glass jars are 2 different kinds of olives, black olive tapenade and a sun dried tomato jam. I put a fresh mozzarella ball and garlic chive cheese. Roasted spiced nuts,  and homemade zaatar chips.” Laura Cohen

8- “My name is Randi, and I am writing to you from Johannesburg, South Africa.
This is a much better picture, we made all different faces and pictures on the flowers, with edible markers and edible glitter. We made regular chocolate cup cakes and used green laffy taffy (called fizzers here)
My 10 year old daughter, Aliza  wrote a poem to go with it.

On the day of purim so long ago
Haman was hung on the gallows
Venahafochu, Mordechai did stay alive,
And all the Jews did survive.
A few days before,
Queen Esther made a law,
All Jews would fast, in order that the Jewish Nation would last.
Flowers are a symbol of happiness and life,
May the Jewish People know no more strife.”

9- “Hi Marlene,
Here’s my mishloach manot.I made the 2-tiered servers by gluing candlesticks to plates and bowls with
epoxy, spray painting the bottoms with silver paint (priming first), then gluing them together.
In the top bowl are meringues (I’m obsessed with them…the best guilt-free
dessert…I have them perfected so they are crispy on the outside and chewy
on the inside). On the bottom are vanilla and strawberry macarons with pareve cream cheese
buttercream (heaven! These little things live up to all the macaron hype).
Those mini cupcake holders are from The Peppermill.
The little almond cakes have marzipan in the recipe (really delicious), and
are covered with homemade marshmallow fondant. The flowers on top were made
with gum paste and white, silver, and pink edible pearls.
I developed and perfected all the recipes myself.
Everything was pink and white. The finished product was wrapped in
cellophane and tied with white grosgrain ribbon with silver dots. It looked
like a $100 but each one cost less than $5! “Victoria Dwek

"Hi my name is Susan Zeitoune, I am 17 years old and I made a dinner party for my friend's birthday. 
The theme was Dylan's Candy Bar so I wrapped cubes with Dylan's wrapping paper and put octagonal 
mirrors on top for individualized food. The food was all homemade and placed in differently shaped mini lucite cups and bowls. 
(From left to right) mini penne noodles with sauce, mini veggie pizzas, calsones, mini pizzas, 
fried breaded fish, mini spinach cupcakes, mini salmon with teryaki sauce over couscous, 
sambousak, grilled french green beans with peppers, and mini challi rolls. 
The names for place cards were written on the little striped candy boxes and the napkins were 
Dylan's Candy Bar dessert napkins. For dessert there was 10 different hard and chewy candies in cones 
to choose from, mini Oreo cakes with frosting, mini fruit kabobs , Kit Kat and
M&M cake and Dylan's Candy Bar fondant cake. (All homemade)."
