A Gay Pesach

We had a wonderful Pesach dinner with 16 guys.

E’s incredible culinary Passover menu included:
- Irma's Cherry, Date, Raisin, Prune, Pear Charoset
- Tasty Charoset Balls on Apricots Topped with Toasted Almonds
- Canyon Ranch Charoset (Many Fruits and Nuts)

- Salmon in Tomato, Rhubarb & Blood Orange Sauce

- Roasted Carrot Soup on a Base of Roasted Vegetable Stock with Matzah Balls of Sage & Parsley

- Roasted Asparagus Bundles with Toasted Matzah
- Roasted Pear and Potatoes with Watercress Puree and Toasted Walnuts
- Springtime 6-Vegetable Kugel
- Dried Apricots, Smoked Turkey & Leeks Stuffed Chicken Breast Coated in Pecans

- Mango & Sour Cherry Macaroon Crumble with Coconut Sorbet
- Strawberry and Rhubarb Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream

E pulled our service together from at least four different Haggadahs. This year we used readings from the Stonewall Seder and JQ International GLBT Haggadah for the first time. We also used readings from “Haggadah Z’man Heruteynu: The Season of Freedom Telling” and “A Night of Questions: A Passover Haggadah”. Everyone enjoyed performing a role the play and singing songs that told about the Jewish liberation from slavery in Egypt.

We had a wonderful (though late) Pesach populated entirely by LGBT and allied gentiles! I think yours is lovely--something for me to shoot for next year: it was my first time preparing my own! I'd only been a guest up until now. Love the PRIDE!
