Passover with Paley


Passover begins next Monday, and to help celebrate, Bon Appetit gathers Vitaly Paley's familial gefilte fish recipe. And — don't tell anybody — it's not actually kosher, thanks to the family's limited matzoh supply. "Under Communism, the Soviet Union was an officially atheist country (Paley describes anti-Semitism as 'the national pastime')... Paley's aunt would secretly bake matzoh at home, then bury it within a suitcase and secretly transport it to the house for Passover." [BA]
