When it comes to Passover baking, there aren't enough eggs in the world, so save them to make shakshuka and Israeli breakfast. Skip the hassle of separating whites from yolks, waiting anxiously for your sponge cake to never rise, only to throw it against the wall when it gets stuck to the bundt pan. Let the bakers at these blissful bakeries do the heavy lifting – or should we say, heavy sifting. We've asked the best bakeries in town, both vegan and not, what they're serving up instead of bread this Pesach and here are the melt-in-your-mouth, almond-packed results.
The best bakeries in Tel Aviv for Passover pastry paradise
All five branches of Bakery are offering a variety of special desserts and holiday classics. We've taste tested a few just to make sure they're up to standard, and they more than passed the test. Our favorites were the hazelnut cake with chocolate, the ever-so-delicate orange polenta cake with ground almonds, and the Amaretti cookies that make marzipan the star of the show. Some options can be purchased as early as April 2nd, while others will be available between April 6th and 17th.
Pastry chef Aner Tzalal and the Dallal confectionary team have prepared an extra special flourless collection in honor of the Passover holiday this year. The impressive spread includes meringue kisses, coconut financier, chocolate cake, apple poppy seed cake, raspberry mousse cake, and many more Dallal delicacies. The final touch: decorated gift boxes to turn their desserts into a real celebration. Make sure to head over between April 4th and 10th because the bakery is closing from the 10th to the 18th for the holidays.
Seeds bakery is doing vegans proud this Pesach, with a collection of vegan cakes handmade by Pâtissier Ziv Sandler. The vegan treats will be made with a special gluten-free flour from Africa and the finest raw materials. The festive collection offers cinnamon-wine pie with almond cream and caramelized pears, a decadent chocolate cake with layers of nougat and coffee cream, and a variety of crumbly cookies, just the way Moses liked them.
