Hard to believe, but another year has passed as we prepare to host one of my favorite events, our 3rd annual Mexican Passover Seder at Comal. This year we will be celebrating Passover on two nights, Monday, April 6 and Tuesday, April 7.
There will be a few new twists to the menu this year, but for those who prefer to stick to tradition, we will be serving Comal’s “traditional” Jalapeño Matzo Balls and Beef Brisket braised in Ancho chile adobo. As was the case at past dinners, each ingredient from the Seder plate will be represented in one of the dishes served.
We will once again be following the more liberal Sephardic tradition that allows for corn, beans and rice. It will be a fun, secular celebration, a cultural mash up. There will be no Hagaddahs, and the dinner will not be kosher (meat and dairy will be served), but it will be both festive and delicious.
Last year, many members of the Comal family returned for the second consecutive year, but we would love to see some new faces around the Seder plate as well. We expect both nights to sell out quickly, so don’t hesitate to secure your tickets!
