Manischewitz has a new president and chief executive officer. The world’s largest matzo maker and one of America’s leading kosher food brands, the company has announced the appointment of industry veteran David Sugarman. Sugarman served as president and CEO of the Allan Candy Company, a division of Hershey.
“‘The New Passover Menu’ has arrived in order to set you free,” Paula Shoyer tells readers in the introduction of her newest cookbook, published by Sterling Epicure. That promise, from the author of “The Holiday Kosher Baker,” intrigued me. From what would we be liberated? What I found was that the assortment of recipes in this book allows for two types of culinary freedom. For one, many of the dishes require everyday ingredients and are easy to prepare. This is a blessing for those who tend to get stressed out about how much time it takes to pull together a Passover Seder.
