I saw an ad for it in HaModia. Have you seen it? I was wondering if the recipes are for portions of like 144 like the regular Balabuste cookbook (I think I'm thinking of the same one - the one from the ladies from Nitra?). B'H, we have lots of guests, but not THAT many.

No, it's a normal cookbook, with servings for a family.

It has pictures and looks specially good for those who don't use processed food.

That's the problem with being Lubavitch you cannot use anything besides for meat, chicken, potatoes, fruit, veg fish and eggs. By the time Pesach is over everyone is fed up. I seem to put cheap wine in everything to try and give the food flavour, also lemon juice. I am so used to using different spices and herbs during the year that the food just does not seem to be right.
My other problem is that my Husband grew up in a house that used loads of proceded foods and he is used to matzah brie, cocunut pyramids, lemon curd, etc... so he really gets fed, but I do try and sometimes you do take it a bit personnaly when you spend hours trying to make food look good and taste good and he turns his nose up at it. Crying or Very sad
Well never mind he will have to get used to it I guess. Very Happy

There's an online cookbook of 100 recipes or pages, I forget,from Nshei Chabad of London that can be downloaded. (Sorry I don't have the link, maybe I'll try to find it and edit it in.) and of course the purple Spice and Spirit Kosher for Passover Cookbook. The recipes are minhag Chabad. Especially the London one has no processed foods incl. potato starch AFAIK.

I don't know when anyone has a chance to patchke with all the fancy recipes anyway. I can't get beyond the basics. We are all happy with the chicken in sweet potato, carrot , onion, orange sauce, chicken soup with egg "lukshen", potato kugel and we eat our gefilte fish with or just plain cucumbers, or salad flavored with avocado, it works like oil. applesauce, and cut up fruit for dessert. And matza of course Very Happy

the rest of the time we are squeezing lemons and oranges.

GR, don't be so set on your campaign, if people only want to eat what they had in Europe, then avoacado is out, along with pineapple and a host of other things.

I have that downloaded cookbook and like a few of their recipes!

it's true SaraG, my BIL won't use cucumbers, zuchinni, canteloupe. Maybe because it has seeds? Pumpkin, butternut squash seeds can perhaps be considered kitniyos? However, I don't know of any use for canteloupe, zuch. or cucumber seeds?

We never used tomatoes till recently, but we cut off all the peel and then some Laughing , I wouldn't blanch them, because if anything's wrong with the peel, putting it in hot water would really "cook" it in, no?

does anyone know the story with Romaine lettuce? Is it OK to use after the Seder for salad? (for those who use only things that you peel) I thought, if you use it at the Seder, why not the rest of Pesach, but then again, I hear that many do not. My parents never did, but I never thought into it. They also didn't use tomato, when I was growing up. could be that my father learned his (Chabad)Pesach minhagim from certain eltere Chassidim. My grandparents were not Lubavitch (originally Wink ).

My in-laws didn't either use all the salad stuff- tomato, cucmber, lettuce.

SY, you have to use your "klipah" pot for the tomatoes - put them in hot water, the the skin slips right off, in one piece!

As far as the lettuce, you're allowed to have that the days of the seder - I asked the rov.

Acording to him, you can't have:

Horseradish, raw or cooked - and lots of people mistakenly put it in their fish recipe

Walnuts - but you can have other kosher for passover nuts

Apples - not raw and not cooked either

We use the leftover romaine lettuce from the seder for salads.

SaraG, about blanching the tomatoes in a special pot, (like we have for eggs) I get that, but I don't understand it, because if there is any substance e.g. kitniyos wax on the peel, wouldn't the hot water "cook" it in?

And about the lettuce that is interesting. But I was talking about after the Sedarim, but then again Erev Pesach would be the same idea.

and Defy , thanks, yes that was what I was talking about. It seems that some do and some don't. I'm trying to understand the logic of that, maybe as someone mentioned that because eating the Marror by the Seder is a mitzvah, therefore there is a special protection for that, which is not the case for the rest of Pesach.

Did you know that there are even people that only eat matzah for the Sedarim, and then don't the rest of Pesach. Surprised because the biggest chshash of chometz could be in the matzah . After-all, it's made from wheat and water and if anything went slightly wrong during the baking....Shocked

So Pesach is a time for going overboard with chumras. Laughing Although we should never laugh at someone for their chumras, on Pesach we are enjoined specifically not to. All these scrupulous hiddurim are accomplishing tremendous things in all the spiritual worlds.

It is said in the name of the ARI haKadosh that whoever is scrupulous in avoiding a mashehu (infinitesimal amount) of chometz on Pesach will not sin the entire year!

I have a real problem. My dh is much more lenient on things that I grew up not touching pesach (like lettuce other than seder) I am so used to doing things that way and he just doesn't get why I'm so obsessed wiht these things but I guess it's a matter of habit......
