Whether you want to cook a spectacular Passover dinner yourself or take the meal home with you to heat and serve – or something in between – Roche Bros. has everything you need to make this Passover a special one. This year Passover is April 10 to April 28. The first night of the holiday is celebrated on Monday, April 10.

Here’s what you need to know to plan your best seder menu yet, and to make your family’s meals throughout the whole eight-day holiday flavorful and easy:

 

Appetizers

Passover appetizers are full of tradition, and for many people, they’re the best part of the meal.

Take home Chopped Chicken Liver and Gefilte Fish, with a side of horseradish. The holiday just wouldn’t be the same without the aroma of Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls simmering on the stove.

You’ll also find all the matzo and matzo crackers you need – both regular and gluten-free – in our grocery department.

 

Entrées

Whether you make your own or bring it home, you can’t go wrong with brisket as your Passover main course.

Other traditional choices include roast chicken or turkey, and chicken breasts stuffed with matzo stuffing. Try our recipe for Whole Roasted Lemon-Thyme Chicken, with fresh-squeezed lemon and savory thyme. Find all of the main course meats you need for any recipe in Roche Bros.’ meat department – or take it with you, from Our Kitchen to your table.

 

Side Dishes

From fresh spring vegetable side dishes to traditional Passover accompaniments, your options are virtually endless.

In Our Kitchen, we’ll be roasting fingerling potatoes, as well as Brussels sprouts, and making our own Homemade Potato Kugel. We’ll be glazing carrots with maple syrup, grilling asparagus and making matzo stuffing, with mushrooms or spinach or plain and simple.

If you’re looking to make a colorful side dish, pair your chicken or brisket with a  rainbow of vegetables. Mix fresh sweet potatoes, red and yellow peppers, zucchini and onions, with olive oil and your choice of fresh herbs. Roast them slowly in the oven at a low temperature so they’ll come out bursting with beauty and flavor.

Dessert

Just because everyday cakes and cookies aren’t part of the Passover tradition, that doesn’t mean you have to skip dessert. Roche Bros. has all sorts of great unleavened choices  to satisfy your family’s sweet tooth.

Find all flavors and sizes of macaroons in our bakery department. And steal the show with Our Own Flourless Chocolate Decadence Cake. This rich, fudgy creation will be the pinnacle of your meal and wow all of your guests. Bake your own dessert centerpiece with our recipe for a light and airy Mocha-Almond Meringue Cake with rich mocha filling.

The whole meal catered for you!

If you’re looking for a home-style Passover meal without all the work, order everything you need from Roche Bros. catering service by special order.

In addition to Roast Brisket as an entree, we are offering Stuffed Matzo Chicken Breasts, Orange Honey Chicken Breasts and Roast Plainville Turkey, ready to heat and serve at home.

A full dinner for 8-10 people with the entrée of your choice includes the following: 1 pound of Chopped Chicken Liver or 8 pieces of Gefilte Fish, 3 quarts of Chicken Soup and 12 Matzo Balls, your choice of two 4-pound Side Dishes, and a Brownie and Macaroon Platter.

Happy Passover from all of us at Roche Bros!

We encourage ordering ahead to ensure availability.

    Do you stock kosher meat, either frozen or fresh in your West Roxbury market?

      Hi Diane,

      The only kosher meat I know of in West Roxbury is Empire Poultry. One of our meat associates in store would be happy to help you find it.

      Thanks!
