Tradition!Wednesday, March 19th, 2014
Tevye, the protagonist from “Fiddler on the Roof”, extolls the importance of preserving old traditions in Jewish cultural life. Of course that doesn’t mean that new traditions can’t be established as well. Another year has passed, and as spring comes around we prepare to host our 2nd annual Mexican Passover Seder at Comal.
There will be a few new twists to the menu this year, but the Jalapeño Matzo Balls and Beef Brisket braised in ancho chile adobo are back due to popular demand – as is the tequila-cured salmon.
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.
We welcome you to gather around the Seder plate and help to enrich this young Comal family tradition. Last year’s dinners both sold out in advance, so we encourage you to pick up tickets sooner than later if you’re planning to join us.
Here’s a link to the official announcement with menu details, ticket info, etc – hope to see you there!
