The Last Supper
What can beat Babette's Feast? How about Seder? It was good enough for Jesus.
Of course, we had to pose for the camera to recreate Michelangelo's famous meal.

Percy enjoyed his first dinner club and most especially the paw-washing rituals.
Our Order of Worship was taken from this rabbinical source:
Jeff; sherry and a Bordeaux-type red
We all painted crosses on the doors in lamb's blood; our first-borns were fine. Not so sure about any Egyptian neighbors though.
Here was the Seder plate of ritual food; rubber eggs, bitter herbs (endive) and charoset (here lovingly arranged crucifixion-style). The shankbone was replaced by the equally symbolic walrus penis bone (which was also not easten).
Hummus and olives: Marianne.
Chicken Soup with Matzoh Balls: Jolee
Braised Lamb of God: Philip
It wasn't kosher but hallal killed.
Persian Charoset: Preston
This symbolized the mortar used to make the Egyptian slave-owners' pyramids. It is historically untrue (they were neither built with mortar nor by slaves) and tasted better too.
Macaroons: Nancy (with the orange zest option)
