When it comes to Passover dishes, there's a world of choices and traditions to explore. Our new spins on some of the classics will get you started exploring, and will get the whole family talking about why this year's Seder is even better than the last.

Because dietary restrictions vary from congregation to congregation, it's best to ask your local rabbi if you have questions about which ingredients are appropriate for you. For a handy guide to substitutions for adapting your own recipes for Passover use, see Passover Substitutions at Simply Manischewitz.

Two of our favorite books that cover different Passover traditions are Jewish Holiday Cooking, A Food Lover's Treasury of Classics and Improvisations by Jayne Cohen (John Wiley & Sons, 2008) and Joan Nathan's Jewish Holiday Cookbook by Joan Nathan (Schocken Books, 2004).
