Take it easy this Passover and let the "veggie whisperer," Charleen Badman, and her crew over at FnB make your dinner this year unforgettable. Family-style appetizers that have classics and new favorites, kosher style entrees, and some fantastic desserts are all on the menu for the dinner on April 14 in honor of the holiday. You certainly don't have to be Jewish to find all of these dishes, from chopped chicken liver and red beet salad to lemon verbena panna cotta, craveworthy.
