Susan’s Modern Glass and Floral Passover Seder Plate

8 Comments 14 March 2013

Susan Menash happens to be another favorite person in my life. Her talent is knows no bounds- just check out her  photography website HERE and you will know what I mean. I especially love the pictures of the seniors on her site as there are so many great stories waiting to be told…..

I love her seder plate creation from 2011 as it teaches us that a little imagination goes a long way….

Enjoy! Marlene

“Hi Marlene,

I used 2 rectangular vases from Crate and Barrel but you can choose to use up to a dozen small vases as your base. I had a piece of glass made up  24 inches by 12 inches. (You can use any clear tray or any thick piece of glass ) I filled my vases up with water, orchids, (last longer in water) and topped with my glass seder tray.

I was thinking of putting red or blue tropical fish to symbolize the parting of the Red Sea sea  but I didn’t want to be stuck with the live fish after the seder.

Now that I think of it, I should have given the fish away as Afikoman gifts for my grandchildren.

Susan Menash”

Sparkling Blue Table Decor for Your  Passover Seder !

The story of Passover occurred thousands of years ago, but that doesn’t mean your Seder table needs to look like it took place in Ancient Egypt. This holiday, let’s take a cue from one of the most trendsetting designers of all time, David Hicks.

“My greatest contribution as an interior designer has been to show people how to use bold color mixtures,

how to use pattern … and how to mix old with new.”-David Hicks

Adding bright colorful and eye-catching elements to your Seder table will add excitement to your lavish spread and transcend your Passover seder into modernity. Give a nod to David Hicks who always embraced crisp, bold pattern and bright hues making your banquet one that even King Pharoah would say YES to!

The Secret Trick to Boiling Gorgeous Eggs for an Elegant Seder Plate

11 Comments 27 March 2011

Even though the hard boiled or roasted egg that is placed on the Passover seder plate is symbolic of mourning and destruction of the Beit Hamikdash in Jerusalem, Jewish Hostesses worldwide can still beautify their seder plates by using this unique idea from Apartment Therapy.  Create your own unique Passover seder patterns that may even impress Eliyahu Hanavi!

Recipe and photos via  thekitchn. 

Huevos Haminados
Makes 12 eggs

all measurements are approximate
Onion skins
2 tablespoons peppercorns
2 tablespoons salt
4 tablespoons of white vinegar (or 2 glugs, as Sierra says)
4 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 dozen eggs
pretty leaves, such as parsley or cilantro (optional)
clean pantyhose (optional)

You begin by asking your grocer for as many discarded brown onion skins they can give you. For a dozen eggs, we used about 8 cups, although it’s recommended that you have twice that for the best color, particularly if you are slow-cooking them. If the onion skins are dirty, wash them before proceeding.

Fill a large soup pot with the skins, cover with water, and bring it to a boil. You should see the color of the water change to medium brown. Then add the peppercorns, salt, and white vinegar. Turn down the heat to a simmer.

Gently lower the eggs in the water, making sure they are completely covered, and add more water if necessary. Cover the surface of the water with the oil, and then cover the pot with a lid. Let simmer, covered, until the eggs are a rich mahogany color – about an hour.

Cooked this way, the eggs have just the slightest flavor of onions, and are similar to hardboiled eggs. If you want hot eggs on your Sabbath table, you can move the pot to a preheated slow oven (about 225F) after you add the eggs. The longer cooking time will increase the onion flavor, although it will still be delicate.

Before adding the eggs, you can press a decorative leaf such as parsley, cilantro, or even a leaf from your garden to the outside. Affix the leaf with pantyhose, tied in a tight knot. Just to be safe, we would refrain from cooking these pantyhose clad eggs in the oven.

The longer you cook the eggs, the more likely they are to crack. They’ll have a spiderweb-like pattern on them, similar to Chinese tea eggs and more of the onion flavor.
