Passover is almost here again, and I have some sweet tips for you!

As always,  your completely Kosher for Passover needs for gifts, sweets, and cakes can be filled Oh! Nuts. Get those orders in by Thursday April 10th for them!

William Greenberg has a whole Kosher selection (including Apple Macaroon Cake) at their Passover store!

Financier Patisserie is getting into the Passover game with Chocolate Raspberry Flourless Cake (pictured above), Matzo Des Sables Aux Amandes, and lots of other treats. (Please note that Financier’s Passover treats are not certified Kosher or Kosher for Passover.)

Robicelli’s also has their Easter / Passover order form up, so don’t miss it!

Jacques Torres chocolate covered Matzo is crazy good! I wish they had it all year ’round!

Exclusive Robicelli’s Comic!

Friday 28th March 2014 - 3:35:22 AM

Hurray! The Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes, is here! I thought it would be fun to share these comic pages I collaborated on with Allison when the book was in the pitching stage. These pages are not in the book, but I think they’ll give you a good idea of the fun tone of the book!robcomfin1a


The book got a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly!  I had a blast drawing Allison’s script for some recipe comics. This book is going to be hilarious and packed with great recipes!
