Michael Leviton Chef/owner of Newton, MA’s French bistro, Lumière, believes in Chinese food at Christmas and homemade matzo at Passover. The best part is it takes less time to make your own matzo than to schlep all the way over to the festival seasonal Pareve section at your local supermarket to pick up a box. 

If you’ve got flour and water in the house (we’re presuming you have salt), you have what it takes to turn that pizza stone you never use into a matzo-baking operation.
