The Seder feast is a time for indulgence, so we’ve picked some foodie Passover gift ideas for each of the eight days of Passover that your hosts won’t be able to pass up!
The Jewish Cookbook
This definitive collection of Jewish recipes is perfect for anyone looking for Passover gift ideas which will add international taste to their Passover table.
The Jewish Cookbook is a celebration of the breadth of this ever-evolving culinary tradition, reflecting the changing geographies and ingredients with recipes from communities the world over.
Featuring over 400 home-cooking recipes for everyday and holiday foods from the Middle East to the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, its author Leah Koenig has compiled contemporary interpretations by renowned chefs including Yotam Ottolenghi, Michael Solomonov and Alex Raij.
David’s Harp Citron Vodka
Mountain View Distillery is an artisan craft distillery located on the Mattas family farm in Minaville New York. Distilled from 100% fresh pressed New York apples and blended with natural lemon flavour, David’s Harp Citron Vodka is the perfect Passover tipple.
The purity of the two base ingredients, ethanol and water determine the rounded mouthfeel and clean flavour profile of the vodka, which has been lifted with a sweet citrus twist. Distinct from most Passover spirits, typically made from molasses, it possesses quite the unique flavour profile.
No. 209 Gin
Many spirits are kosher, but very few are kosher-for-Passover. The world’s only maker of certified Passover gin, Distillery 209 in San Francisco Bay crafts a modern tipple that even the most observant Jews can enjoy.
The Orthodox Union supervises the entire production to ensure the recipe, distillation practices and bottling procedures adhere strictly to kosher dietary law. Traditionally created by distilling fermented barley, sugar cane instead serves as the foundation, imparting a sweetness to counter the citrus-spice botanical profile of bay leaf, juniper and cassia.
Yehuda Chocolate Coated Matzos
If you’re bored of regular matzos and are looking for a sweet hit during the Passover holiday, this one is a winner! These matzos are light, crispy, and covered in chocolate – need we say more?
Yehuda Matzos special kosher-for-Passover products are produced under the supervision of the Orthodox Jewish community and certified by the Chief Rabbinate of Jerusalem. Plus, the parve label means it contains zero dairy products, so are perfect for chocoholic vegan friends.
Selfridges Selection Italian Amaretti
Amaretto biscuits are traditional Italian Passover treats, as they’re baked with just egg whites and ground almonds. Made to a traditional Tuscan recipe by Marabissi – a traditional Italian bakery founded in 1948 – these soft and crumbly Selfridges Selection biscuits are incredibly moreish.
You’ll detect that unmistakeable almond flavour the minute you bite into one of these golden, buttery treats. Just what you need to accompany fresh coffee and finish off the festive feast, delizioso!
Lin’s Farm All-Natural Gift Box
When it comes to Passover gift ideas, why choose just one gift? Why not a gift box? JLife knows first-hand that Passover can be a time of overindulgence, so a healthy alternative to the usual cloying confectionary could be a welcome gift. Here’s an elegant and practical ensemble to show your host some appreciation, gift-wrapped in a beautiful basket, stuffed with all-natural goodies from Lin’s Farm in southern Israel.
Incorporating homemade recipes using honey, spreads, and olive oil from the farm, grab some matzos and tuck into sweet treats from cocoa and Silan dates to honey halva spread. The basket even includes a bottle of Israeli merlot, so you’ll have two blessings taken care of!
Kosher Chocolate Collection
Chocolate subscription taster service Cocoa Runners has curated four of the very best kosher certified chocolate bars in the world in this exclusive collection.
The perfect pressie for any chocolate lover, this kosher chocolate gift box is a great introduction into the world of bean-to-bar chocolate with tasting notes explaining the story behind each bar. It includes a delicious dark chocolate from Askinosie, a 70% raw chocolate from Pacari, a rich and
creamy milk chocolate from TCHO and an exotic unrefined, cinnamon flavoured chocolate from Taza.
Dalton Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
It’s only over the last decade the nation has gained international renown as a major winemaking region. The best of its offering hails from Bordeaux-style grape varieties which thrive in the higher altitudes of the mountainous terroir of the Galilee and Golan Heights.
A fine example of the nation’s most-cultivated grape, Dalton, Galilee’s first commercial winery, boasts an impressive Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, matured in oak barrels for 18 months to cultivate a complex character of black plums, eucalyptus and chocolate.
