Food/Kosher

(JTA) — Jamaica has its first kosher restaurant. Kosher Hot Spot, run by Chabad of Jamaica, will serve the island nation’s famous jerk cooking in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. The eatery, which opened last week, is located on Montego Bay’s “hip...
This will be the new dessert staple for your Shabbos table! Its crazy simple and easy, and takes 6 minutes to make. You can top this pie with anything you would like. Personally, I like to top it with non-dairy creamer--but marshmallows, caramel sauce, anything works! Ingredients: 1 Graham Cracker Pie...
By Aly Miller (The Nosher via JTA) -- The rainbow bagel trend, admittedly, isn’t my favorite. Neon just isn’t that appetizing to me, and I’ve always been suspicious of too much food coloring. I do love colorful foods, though, as long as those vibrant hues come from things like spices,...
Kosher hot dogs are coming to Wrigley Field, the home of the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs. A kosher food stand will open up at the 103-year-old ballpark on Friday featuring Romanian hot dogs, Romanian Polish sausages, pretzels and drinks, Tablet magazine first reported. A subsidiary of the Chicago-based catering company...
We absolutely love summer cook-out season: hamburgers (or homemade veggie burgers) salads, hot dogs and all the fixings. Set out some beer, sangria and juice boxes for the kiddos, and everyone is ready to party. So to assist with your party planning here’s our list of absolutely essential, delicious, Jewish-inspired side dishes for your summer shindigs. Got a favorite...
BY SHANNON SARNA Jewish food (particularly Ashkenazi) really gets a bad rap as being overwhelmingly fat laden, obesity-inducing dishes lacking fresh fruit and vegetables. But Jewish food is diverse, vibrant and even uses fresh, seasonal vegetables, herbs, colors and spices. Here are a few surprisingly healthy, traditional foods to enjoy with none of...
Panzanella salad is about as classic summer (and Italian) as it gets. Day-old, crusty bread takes on a new, fresher life when paired with juicy summer tomatoes, veggies and a light dressing. There are so many variations of this beloved salad, but to me they all scream one simple...
Canada has apparently barred wines imported from the West Bank from being labeled as products of Israel. The Liquor Control Board of the province of Ontario on Tuesday asked vendors to remove such wines from their shelves and to stop importing them. The board cited a previously unreported July 6...
Kosher beer, bourbon, and BBQ-who's in? At 8:30 pm, the night of August 26th, at Temple Beth Hillel Beth El of Wynnewood, is having a massive BBQ event. Grill masters have traveled across the U.S., from Texas to New York to compete in the first ever Philadelphia Kosher Barbecue. This...
You don’t usually hear the phrases “kosher food,” “taco truck” and “Michelin Star” in the same sentence. But that’s exactly what Chefs Matthew Sieger and Rikki Garcia are doing: using their Michelin Star restaurant experience to bring kosher tacos and other Mexican-Jewish specialties to the streets of Los Angeles. I recently had...
Barbecue season never really gets old, but if you keep serving the exact same things you run the risk of it getting just a little bit tired. Luckily, July 4th comes around just in time to give you an excuse to jazz up your menu again! Here are some...
Want to take your next cookout to the next level? Make your own homemade hot dog buns and lay out a hot dog bar fit for an American grilling king. Hot dogs are one of my favorite summer picnic foods, even though I know they are not the healthiest thing...
Of all the kugels out there–potato, broccoli, sweet potato, and even carrot kugel–sweet noodle kugel is by far my favorite. Some are studded with raisins and cinnamon, some with dairy, some with cranberry. But we thought it would be fun to get a little wacky with noodle kugel and add some...
Keeping a stocked pantry is a deep love of mine. I think it must run in my blood. My mother was also obsessed with having backups of all her favorite products in the basement: There was always boxes of pasta, cans of beans, soup and tons of stuff in...
Pete and Janna Linde own Meshuggah Bagels and planned to create a “crazy good” New York-style bagel with just the right chew. You won’t find blueberry or asiago cheese bagels at Meshuggah: Their kosher bagels are made from artisan flour and boiled before they are baked. And their quest for authenticity is paying...
Potato knishes are one of those quintessential New York Jewish foods that are hard not to love. And somehow the square, pre-made $1 knishes from street carts are just as delicious as the more carefully prepared homemade kind that are round and stuffed with potato, kasha, spinach and other delights. Or maybe...
This recipe is a healthier take on the classic, more indulgent challah French toast. In place of regular challah, this recipe calls for whole wheat challah, but if you can’t find any at your local store, regular challah will work fine, too. Using coconut sugar in place of table sugar...
Its the season! Long summer days = BBQ time. Here's some things that will complete your BBQ, and the photos are links to make your life easier! This picnic bowl is a real life saver, comes with an ice pack, AND the lid holds the tongs so you don't lose them...
We know everyone loves to glorify homemade hummus over the store-bought variety. But not everyone has time to make hummus at home. Or even wants to. And there are some truly authentic-tasting, super creamy hummus varieties you can buy at the supermarket. We taste-tested and researched and here’s our list...
The first time I tried vegan bacon, it was made of mushrooms. It was sprinkled atop a melty cashew mac ‘n cheese, and because vegan meat isn’t typically too noteworthy, I was surprised that it actually looked and tasted the part. Bacon is one of those flavors that’s hard to...
Tabbouleh is a classic Middle Eastern salad made with bulgur, tomatoes and a high ratio of chopped fresh herbs. It’s easy to make, fresh, delicious and healthy too, making it a much-beloved side dish around the world. Instead of classic bulgur, we wanted to try a version made with quinoa,...
Local hospitals are working with the Jewish community to offer comfort to patients who keep kosher. Though many area hospitals have offered kosher meals for years, they often left something to be desired by patients and their families, said a local Jewish doctor. Dr. Arnold Good, interventional cardiologist at OhioHealth Grant...
When I think of knishes, like most people, I think of New York Jewish deli-style discs of creamy potato or savory meat, enveloped by a flaky crust. Potato knishes are my favorite, because they act as a vehicle for as much good, grainy mustard as I see fit. The last...
A Jewish star hangs around Hanna Mendez' neck as she tends to business in her Teaneck store. But Mendez, who recently took over Cedar Lane's Pizzalicious — and added frozen yogurt section Berrylicious to it — is not Jewish: She was born and raised a Christian in Mexico. Working at the kosher...
For the past two decades, Broadway Cafe served up kosher fare in Toco Hills. The restaurant recently closed, and it was uncertain what would become of the dining concept or the space. Scott Italiaander announced what would be happening to the space on Facebook over the weekend: Italiannder and his...
Are you a fan of Wegmans yet? If you’ve never heard of Wegmans, let me enlighten you a bit. It’s a family-owned regional supermarket chain that was started in 1914 in Rochester, N.Y. Since then it has expanded throughout Western New York and into Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland...
Look, I’m going to be honest with you: deep frying is a huge pain. It’s hot, it’s splatter-y, sometimes things come out raw, and it’s not exactly healthy. Fun stuff, right? BUT! Big, big but. It is also, when done right, one of the best things in the world. Deep...
We found six non-observant Jews who had never tried to follow Kosher rules and asked them to give it a shot. There were a lot of rules. A LOT! And it was very hard for the participants to find Kosher menus at restaurants. They also had to boil their dishes and utensils to...
We absolutely love summer cook-out season: hamburgers (or homemade veggie burgers) salads, hot dogs and all the fixings. Set out some beer, sangria and juice boxes for the kiddos, and everyone is ready to party. So to assist with your party planning here’s our list of absolutely essential, delicious, Jewish-inspired side dishes...
With Shavuos approaching, we are on the hunt for recipes and ideas to make Yom Tov prep easier. Soups are great because they can be made in advance. Here's a delicious one by Miriam Pascal, the Overtime Cook. Roasted Red Pepper Soup: Slightly based on a recipe from AllRecipes.com Ingredients: 4 medium red...
