Matzo may not be the heralded as the tastiest of treats (it's commonly compared to cardboard) but it's been a Seder dinner staple for hundreds of years for several symbolic reasons. But here to prove that unleavened bread doesn't have to be boring is the duo behind The Matzo Project who stepped in to spice—or should we say sweeten?—things up.
The Brooklyn-based brand just released their modern, and most importantly, delicious take on your standard matzo, which is originally made with just flour and water. The Matzo Project's artisanal, small-batch creations are the next generation of matzo—salt and oil are added to the dough—meant to be your new favorite cracker. Take your pick from toppings like white and milk chocolate pecan or dark chocolate almond butter crunch. Standard flavors include salted, everything, and cinnamon-sugared and are the perfect accompaniment to any condiment. Better than the matzo itself may be the playful branding featured on the on the box, which is designed to pay homage to all the stylish, funny, and fierce "Jewish Grandmas" out there. Passover just got a bit more playful.
Along with upgrading your matzo, give your tablescape a chic update with these beautiful crystal glasses from Aerin.
