Matzo, matza, matzah – whatever you call it, you can’t help but love its crispy, flame-baked goodness. We call it Matzo, with a capital ‘M’, because it’s such an important part of our family.

With Passover creeping ever closer, we thought we’d pay tribute to the mighty Matzo by endowing you with some useful knowledge about the humble cracker.


Matzo ball soup is a Seder classic. We’ve posted a version of this recipe before on the blog, but feel it deserves an encore in the lead-up to Passover. Partly because it’s one of our favourites – but mainly because you can prepare it in advance and save yourself hassle on the day.

Pop along to our kosher for Passover shop to pick up some ingredients.
