Attention grocery store shoppers: it's that time of year again when rows of matzo-based products start dominating supermarket displays as the Jewish eight-day holiday of Passover draws near.
During Passover, which begins the night of April 18 this year, Jewish people all over the world will forgo leavened bread products to commemorate the story of the Exodus.
Sure - some people only eat the unleavened cracker during Passover out of observance, but chef Stephanie Izard likes her matzo all year 'round.
Stephanie Izard was the season four winner of Bravo's über popular reality cooking competition, "Top Chef." Her latest venture, Girl and the Goat, just nabbed a 2011 James Beard Award nomination for "Best Restaurant."
