Too Many Cooks
A Passover Parable
Bubbe is interrupted while she is making charoses for the Passover seder. While she chats on the phone, family members wander into the kitchen and add their own “special ingredient” to spice up the mixture. As a result of too many cooks, the “charoses is atrocious!” An amusing introduction to the festive Passover meal.
