Matzo Balls for Passover

Matzo balls can be as ephemeral as clouds or firm, with nice chew. There’s an audience for each, but in Israel, the sturdier variety seems to hold sway. Those are the matzo balls that Breads Bakery is offering this year for Passover, which begins March 30. Theirs are not much larger than golf balls, and they are sold plain or in soup, a clear, deeply flavored vegetable broth with enough richness to eclipse chicken: Matzo balls (10) in about three cups of soup, $14.95; 10 plain matzo balls, $7.95: Breads Bakery, 18 E. 16th St., 1890 Broadway (63rd Street), 212-633-2253, breadsbakery.com.
