I'm also collecting Passover recipes from Los Angeles chefs. The first one, Persian Celebration Rice, is a Sephardic recipe from Tunisian-born chef Alain Cohen of Got Kosher?, near Beverly Hills. It's very beautiful and doesn't look too hard. Of course, my Ashkenazic family never ate rice on Passover, but I hear lots of Ashkenazic Jews are adopting the traditions of our more lenient Sephardic brethren.
Two more weeks until Pesach. My favorite holiday!
