Australian-born Naomi Nachman, the author of the just-published Perfect for Pesach: Recipes You’ll Want to Make All Year, began her Passover catering business, The Aussie Gourmet, two decades ago in New York. By doing so, she was, in a way, carrying on her family’s tradition. Her parents began the first Passover hotel program in Australia and ran it for nearly 30 years.Nachman used her cooking and catering experience to come up with dishes that are easy to prepare and fun to serve and to eat. Some are inspired by her Ashkenazi background, and others by dishes that she learned from acquaintances in the US.
