Thumbing through your Passover recipe file? Hoping to kick your humdrum charoset up a notch or two? Wondering if there’s more to Passover wines than that syrupy-sweet stuff that usually ends up on your Seder table? Wishing you knew what Passover was all about, anyway? Come to “Passover for Foodies: Wine, Charoset, and Gefilte Fish Tasting,” to celebrate the Season of Liberation with Chabad of the Berkshires. The program will be hosted by Spirited at 444 Pittsfield Road, Lenox, MA, on Friday, April 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event is sponsored in part by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, along with Chabad of the Berkshires.

Charoset (derived from cheres, the Hebrew word for clay), a traditional Passover food that is found on every Seder plate, is a sweet mixture of dried fruits, nuts and wine, and represents the mortar and mud bricks used by the enslaved Jews to build Egypt’s cities. Sara Volovik will bring her international culinary expertise to the table, demonstrating how to prepare three kinds of charoset – German, Turkish, and Greek – and also discussing the many regional differences in Passover cuisine. Free samples and recipes will be offered.

Spirited will showcase its extensive selection of outstanding kosher for Passover wines. Serious winemakers in Israel and across the globe have raised the bar for kosher wines, which oenophiles can count on for excellent quality in an extensive array of varietals and blends. Spirited has the largest selection of kosher wines in the Berkshires, so here is the place to start exploring.

The tasting is open to the public, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend, regardless of religious affiliation or level of knowledge. Please contact Sara Volovik at (413) 499-9899 or saravolovik@gmail.com for more information
