Sweets Makers Taking Orders for Passover Matzo Desserts, Disagree on Spelling
The first seder of the week-long Passover holiday is Monday, March 29. Act now, and you won't be limited to whatever sad-looking last-minute macaroons are left on the Safeway shelf for that all-important unleavened dessert. And while local bakers and chocolatiers agree you should place your Passover orders now, they don't necessarily agree on the spelling of a certain key word. Joanna Karlinsky of Sweet Jo's Cafe (3200 California at Presidio) is taking orders (345-0090, firstname.lastname@example.org) for a lemon cheesecake with a matzoh meal crust, while Chuck Siegel of Charles Chocolates (865 Market at Fifth St.) offers dark chocolate-covered matzah online and in his new San Francisco storefront.

Not so incidentally, Siegel's remake of a Passover classic could be a secret recipe for love; from what we've heard, it might well be responsible for at least one marriage.
