The changing foods and diets of Passover

"With supermarket shelves bulging with Passover muffins, Passover granola and even Passover breadsticks, it's hard to grasp that for much of history, this holiday's fare was limited to the simple and home-made. In the shtetl, Passover preparations began at Chanukah when housewives rendered chicken and goosefat into schmaltz,... Read more...

The National Aquarium in Baltimore:

What's Kosher?

Aquarium_family_300w

If you need a family friendly destination, one that is both educational and fun for all ages –and you are visiting the Washington area, we suggest The National Aquarium in Baltimore. Some members of our family (ages 1-9) along with their parents recently visited the aquarium. Their Hanukkah assignment - have as much fun as possible, and report on the kosher fish. (Yes, one of my grandchildren was also on a search for sharks).

fish_3crWe thank our roving reporters (Shaya, age 9, Sara, age 8, and their younger siblings) for  getting  the fish facts and for this story:

The Baltimore Aquarium has many fish, some kosher and some not. Scary looking sharks, snakelike eels, sawfish with big noses, huge sturgeons, and piranhas with big teeth are all not kosher. All kosher fish have fins and removable scales. These don't. As the roving reporters for KosherEye, we were concentrating on the kosher fish.

Now about our kosher finds:
Kosher fish come in a lot of different shapes, colors, and sizes. The Black Banded Rainbowfish is kosher, but not worth eating at 2.5 inches long. Redbreast Sunfish, as you can tell from its name, are red. They grow to 10 inches long. The Yellow-faced Angelfish is a yellow and blue fish
that is 14 inches long.

The next time you go scuba diving in the Chesapeake Bay, try to find a Summer Flounder. You say it's impossible? Well, you almost got it. You might have seen one without knowing it. Flounder are very good at camouflage. They look like gravel on the ocean floor. Believe it or not...a fully-grown Summer Flounder grows to 3 feet.

Barramundi_300W
More impressive than the small little fishies, are Crevalle Jacks. They grow to 6 feet long and are very fast (and delicious). At the aquarium, they were swimming with the sharks. Barramundi are bigger than the Crevalle Jacks and can grow to 6.5 feet long. They swim in the waters near Australia. Striped Bass and Rockfish are the same size as Crevalle Jacks. They can be found right in our own backyard, since we live near the Chesapeake Bay, but their population is decreasing because of pollution-- so don't eat too many.

The National Aquarium was fun and we learned a lot. Maybe you should go there soon. But after all this we still have a question. If a Bucktooth Tetra (a scale eating fish) ate all the scales off another kosher fish, would the fish still be kosher? (Guess we'll have to ask our father, the Rabbi!)

Kosher Food Fest in Minnesota, Jan. 11, 2015

Food_Fest

On January 11th, 2015, Temple of Aaron will host their first annual Crossriver Kosherfest, bringing together local kosher options including caterers, small shops, and other venues to raise awareness of kosher possibilities. In addition to offering many food choices, they will host sessions/classes to teach about eating kosher and brainstorm on how they can expand the market.

According to Rabbi Jeremy Fine, one of the organizers, “The final element of this event is to offer an opportunity to encourage the twin cities communities to get together.  St. Paulites and Minneapolisites rarely have a reason to travel to the other side of the river. This day of eating and learning will offer an enhanced social dynamic for young and old to mix and mingle. We hope food will bond us together and people will make the 10 minute drive.”

More kosher food options would mean so much to the Jewish communities of Minnesota. “We invite everyone in the area to check out Crossriver Kosherfest. It should be a lot of fun for all ages. If you are a vendor or individual who wants to attend or be involved feel free to reach out to me, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more details.”

Below is the growing list of vendors:
Milts Kosher BBQ (Chicago), Aviv Vodka, Baldinger Bakery, Breadsmith
Bogarts Doughtnuts Co., Funky Chunky, Jezreel Wines (Israel), Just Truffles
Menchies. National Choice Bagels, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Rishi Tea (Wisconsin)
Rita’s Italian Ice, Sholom Catering, Spirit of Asia Catering, Temple of Aaron’s In House Caterer, Vitalis Kosher Bistro

Holiday Recipes
By Guest Columnist
Cindy Hodkin

Welcome to SIFTED. I consider myself a reformed attorney and currently give kosher cooking classes. We cook with the seasons, utilizing herbs and vegetables fresh from my garden that make you feel fresh and light in the summer, warm and fuzzy in the winter. Right now, we are cooking for the holidays and we hope that you will incorporate these the recipes into your repertoire!

Braciole, (pronounced bra-jiole) which is a classic Italian, rolled and stuffed beef. Classic braciole is stuffed with breadcrumbs and cheese. Ours will use string beans, polenta and fig jam. When you slice it, you will have the most beautiful cross section of golden polenta contrasting with the beautiful green of the beans and the rich brown meat. You will actually get two for one with this recipe; the string beans with fig sauce can stand on their own as a side dish. To accompany the braciole, we will make cauliflower couscous, and vegetarian kishka. So, enjoy and have a delicious new year! I would be happy to respond to any questions.

Rosh Hashanah Wine Picks

Kosher_pics_redwine-300x300
Guest Post by Hana of @kosherwinereview

I always love to try new wines; Every time I see a new kosher wine, I have to taste it! When my friends are looking for wine, they always call me for recommendations. It is not always easy to find good kosher wine. My goal is to share my experiences to help others. I publish wine recommendations and wine related stories on my Facebook page – Kosher Wine Review, and on @kosherwinereview on Twitter. I present several of my Rosh Hashanah wine recommendations:

Sara Bee Moscato
Sweet white wine from the Puglia region of Italy...playful aromas of spring flowers, almond blossoms and lemon mousse. It is a rich and lively aperitif or a dessert wine; perfect for the "Kiddush" before eating the apple with honey. Approximate price: $6.99 at Trader Joes

Baron Herzog Chardonnay 2013
This Chardonnay is crisp and refreshing, smooth - textured yet lively on the palate. A very complex wine with notes of tropical fruit, apple and a hint of vanilla on the finish. It pairs perfectly with fish or chicken.
Approximate price: $13.

Terrenal Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
From Spain... Nice tannic backbone and a pleasant mid-palate full of plum and cherry flavors, hints of spices and a note of chocolate highlighting blackberry and black cherry fruits. Pairs well with a meat main course- Approximate price: $4.99

Porto Cordovero 2005
Fully matured in wood, it has an aroma of sweet black currant fruit, raspberry and dark chocolate. Great dessert wine. Pairs well with sorbet or fruits. Approximate price: $49.99

Galil Mountain Rosé 2012
Wine made from 79% Sangiovese, 7% Barbera, 7% Pinot Noir, 7% Grenache and has exceptionally beautiful color. Dry wine with attractive aromas of fresh strawberry, citrus fruit, raspberry and spices. This Rose is heavier than most of its type, will be a good dinner wine that pairs well with fish. Approximate price: $14.99

Binyamina Reserve Merlot 2010
Extremely dark red color, this Merlot is not too dry, somewhat woodsy, mild and smooth and with no after taste. Excellent with chicken or red meat. Approximate price: $20.99

Butterfish
Japanese Restaurant

Joey Allaham and The Prime Hospitality Group
expand again!

New York's first kosher omakase* Japanese restaurant is scheduled to open Sunday, July 20th in Manhattan's Sony Building. Butterfish originally opened to the public as a traditional, authentic, and Japanese omakase restaurant in April 2014, but has just been taken over by Prime Hospitality Group and supervised under the Orthodox Union (Joey Allaham loved the concept so much and the Chef agreed to turn it kosher!). True to its name, the goal of Butterfish is to offer fresh, quality fish that will literally melt in your mouth. Served over warm rice, the hand selected Japanese fish is prepared with the simplest of ingredients.

Butterfish-Food-sm

The menu will offer soups, salads, sushi, sashimi, and include Kobe beef sushi, beef shabu and chicken tempura. A very special feature of the restaurant will be "Jin's Table" a unique chef's table experience offered by reservation only.

Address: 550 Madison Avenue (previously Solo Restaurant) http://www.butterfishny.com
(212) 729-1819

About Chef Hitoshi: As a young boy, Chef Hitoshi's father was constantly hospitalized leaving all responsibility to him. He cared for his family the only way he knew how, by cooking. Hitoshi trained in Osaka and was then selected by his colleagues to come to NYC to work as a sushi chef.
