The latest In Kosher Food

The other day my son called me from yeshiva ? just to chat. As usual, I asked about his day and of course, like any good mother ? "How's the food?" His response was "Pretty good," but that there are days that he doesn't eat supper because he doesn't like what they serve. I felt bad, but what could I do? He doesn't have a refrigerator, microwave or oven, so I can't send him food from home or even packaged meals ? can I?

Bubbles For The Good Life

For hundreds of years, the wine most often associated with the superior way of life has been Champagne. Attributed a soul, temperament and wit, many Frenchmen are convinced that Champagne can do them no harm, no matter how much they consume. Madame de Pompadour declared that, "it is the only wine that makes a woman more beautiful after drinking." This delightful beverage is so much a cultural phenomenon in France that a person who dislikes Champagne is pitied or regarded as sick, disabled or depraved.

Crunchy Good News From Israel

Based on the headlines in the daily papers and the sometimes truly disturbing images broadcast from Israel, one might get the impression that the average Israeli must endure a gut-wrenching daily balagan (controlled chaos). However, Kassam missile strikes and suicide attacks have never stopped the average Israeli from working or living life to the fullest.

The Latest In Kosher Food: Snacking Perfection

Crispy snacks, chewy nougat, and an assortment of cookies that will delight your taste buds. If we were giving awards for the best snacks, these three companies would each take home first prize.

For STAR-K: The Skype’s The Limit

When Rabbi Chaim Glazer, an 11th grade rebbi at Yeshiva Toras Chaim in North Miami Beach, Florida, was teaching his class about Kil'ei Ilanos (the issur of grafting two trees of different species together) his lesson plan research led him to a STAR-K Kashrus Kurrents article on hydroponics - the cultivation of plants in a nutrient solution rather than in soil.

The Latest In Kosher Food: Sauces and Dressings

As many of us begin searching for the perfect dairy or fish meal for the Nine Days, it seems a great time to review some of the wonderful kosher sauces and dressings that can be found in the local grocery or supermarket.

Honey

One of the favorite food staples in the Jewish home during the High Holy Day season is honey. Traditionally, from Rosh Hashana until after Succot, honey is served with every major meal. It is smeared on the bread over which we recite the Hamotzi blessing, the sweet apple is dipped into honey on the night of Rosh Hashana, sweet baked goods are baked with honey, and honey is used in the preparation of foods such as glazed carrots and sweet desserts. Aside from the caloric disaster that this custom entails, one is really hard pressed to find a negative thing to say about honey.

Fine Wines For Rosh Hashanah

The blast of the shofar carries loudly and clearly over long distances. Because of that, it was often blown in biblical times as a means of communication - to announce times of danger or the onset of peace. Today the shofar is sounded in connection with the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. In fact, the only specific biblical commandment for the upcoming Rosh Hashanah holiday (in these times) is the sounding of the shofar.

California Dreaming

Bruce Cohn, manager of the rock band The Doobie Brothers, purchased his Sonoma County winery in 1974, and since then has been equally well known for his olive oil and his philanthropy as for his wine. Cohn seems to have done a fine job of precisely what a family-owned boutique operation should be doing, namely creating high quality wines with a distinct personality. In 2008 Cohn made his first kosher wine, and that wine is well worth the attention of the most devoted of wine lovers. Released in a limited edition of 400 cases (4,800 bottles), the wine is only available directly from the winery and can be ordered by calling 800-330-4064 or by visiting www.brcohn.com. Here's my tasting note for the wine:

Culinary ‘Boot Camp’ Launched In Brooklyn

The economy is directing people towards cost-consciousness and dining in, rather than dining out. For many of these former restaurant-goers, especially singles who live on their own, the kitchen is alien territory. Perhaps they can prep a basic sandwich, or boil a box of pasta. But needing to feed a family or guests on an ongoing basis requires a bit more creativity and skill.
