ext Monday evening Passover begins, and on this holiday
our table settings are special. I always use the same Seder
plate my mother-in-law gave us when we were newly-
weds. I just purchased a stained-glass Seder plate at
Temple Israel for my niece, who will be married in May. It is a work of art,
and I hope it becomes part of her family tradition.
Our cover, photographed by John Uher, is from the book Kosher by Design
by Susie Fishbein. Underneath
the title, the tagline reads
"Picture-perfect food for the
holidays and every day." If
you want to set a beautiful
table, this book offers many
ideas and recipes for all the
Jewish holidays, beginning
Passover is also called
the holiday of spring —
Hag ha-Aviv. What better
way to celebrate spring
than with a spectacular
garden. Take a peek at
Franklin garden. Not
only are the flowers
fabulous, but also
there is a waterfall
cascading into a pond
filled with koi and water lilies. There's a
lot blooming at the Spizizen household this season as the
family just welcomed a new baby. Congratulations!
After Passover, it's time to dine out. Try the Ann Arbor intimate bistro
— Eve. Chef Eve Aronoff offers an eclectic menu mixing North African,
West African, Cuban and Vietnamese cuisines.
In our next issue of Platinum, look for our annual prom spread and grad-
uation gift ideas.
