During Passover for example, a number of foods are forbidden. If you are cooking food for Jewish guests during Passover, ask them about their specific culinary traditions and if you should use ingredients like matzo meal. While all types of matzo are presumed Kosher, not all are safe for Passover, since some have ingredients which are restricted during this important holiday.
