Matzo is Jewish unleavened bread which dates back to the time of the Bible.

It is said that matzo was originally made when the Jews fled from Egypt as they had no time to bake bread with yeast.

Since then, matzo is eaten each year by the Jews during the festival of Passover as a reminder of the exodus from Egypt and their release from slavery.

Matzos are eaten as bread, with or without butter, and can be spread with sweet or savoury mixtures. They are also used in making various dishes during Passover.

Matzo can be bought at most delicatessen shops.
