If you had stopped by our test kitchen yesterday, you would have happened upon Max and Eli Sussman, cooking like mad, all burners going, ingredients piled on every available surface. The chefs and authors of Classic Recipes for Modern People were here to prepare an early Passover feast, cohosted by their parents—a meal to forever be known as the best seder ever.
For many of us, the meal was also our first seder ever, so Max & Eli's father Marc and mother Lynn were there to guide us through their family's rituals and traditions. "We do weird things with our food," Marc Sussman joked. Whatever they did, it was delicious. Check out the highlights—and all that crazy-delicious food—below.
