How to Set the Seder Plate

If you’re as obsessed with all of those reality cooking shows as I am (any one with the word “chef” in it is automatically amazing), you know that food is not just about the food anymore. It’s all about the plating. You know what else is all about the plating?


Setting up the seder plate is a key component to the holiday celebration, so we’re offering up this veritable cheat-sheet that shows you exactly where everything goes and what it all actually means. You can download it here to print out and have on hand for your seder come Monday night.

While you’re at it, have another viewing of our official Seder Plate music video, sure to get you in the mood for Passover.
