Learn to cook for Passover


March 16, 2018

Myrna Ossin is hands on with food, showing Orlando JNFuture young professionals and UCF Hillel students how to prepare meals for Passover.

Young professionals from Orlando JNFuture and students from UCF Hillel attended a Passover cooking class at UCF Hillel taught by Myrna Ossin.

Attendees assembled their own matzo lasagna and learned how to make their own macaroons and Passover bagels. They also learned about different cooking accessories and tips that make cooking easier.

"Every Passover cookbook is geared toward cooking for the Passover Seder," Ossin said. "My book gives tons of Passover recipe options for the remaining seven days." 

The idea for a Passover cooking class originated with Orlando JNFuture, which is the young professional arm of the Orlando Jewish National Fund Chapter. 

"UCF Hillel heard about what we were doing and they generously let us use their kitchen and dining area to host our event and they invited some of their students to attend," said Lee Ossin, a board member of JNFuture. "We wanted to show the younger generation that keeping Passover is not so difficult when you know what to cook. You don't have to eat gefilte fish from a gelatin covered jar for eight days."

Myrna Ossin plans on teaching other Passover cooking classes throughout the month of March at CRJ and at the Maitland Library, but for those who cannot make those classes, her book, "What To Do With Your Leftover Matzo, the 5th Question," can be purchased on Amazon.
