The past few weeks on JCarrot have been exciting, especially as we near Passover. Daniel Infeld offered his reflections on kosher airplane food and the challenges these meals present. New writer Kirby Oren-Zucker shared her thoughts on slowing down life in order to observe Shabbat, and how food plays a big part in this. In gearing up for Passover, we’ve featured two articles with unique and tasty recipes: Rachel Harkham presents to us a quickfire-style challenge that tries to make the best matzah brie and Dahlia Abraham-Klein provides us with a seasonal soup recipe.

Reminder- Passover begins next Friday, April 6th.
