In the rush to gather, assemble, and cook gourmet Passover recipes for the seder meals, it can be daunting to even consider pre-preparing any meals for chol hamoed. Many families either continue to eat leftovers from the seders, or live off of cold cuts, tuna, and matzah pizza for a few days. Not that there’s anything wrong with matzah pizza, but we here at Gourmet Passover Cooking think it’s possible to make chol hamoed more delicious without tiring yourself out. There are many delicious Passover recipes that may not be suitable for the seder meals, either because they are dairy or simply because they lack the elegance for a Yom Tov meal. Some of these can be made in advance and frozen until the appropriate time, some are great for packing up on a chol hamoed picnic, and some are just plain old comfort food for the family craving their lasagna. Enjoy!
