Passover starts at sundown April 18 – are you ready? Whether you're a Passover/Pesach veteran or just planning your first seder, the Spertus Institute has you covered with their Passover Boot Camp class tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. 

Executive Chef Laura Frankel, author of Jewish Cooking for All Seasons and the Chosen Bites column in the Jerusalem Post, will be joined by Karen Rose, owner of City Olive, to demonstrate how to create a healthy and delicious three-course Passover meal, including gefilte fish, confit vegetables and more, all with a special emphasis on using kosher olive oils.  Attendees will get the lowdown on pre-Passover preparation, as well as explore global ingredients for eight days worth of tips for versatile Passover meals and treats.  

Tickets includes take-home recipe cards to add to your own repertoire, and can be purchased online for $18, $15 for Spertus members, or by calling 312-322-1773. The Spertus Institute is located at 610 S. Michigan Ave. For more information, visit http://spertus.edu.
