Learn how Kosher food evolved, discover delicious Shabbat meals and find out more about family traditions in Jewish cuisine. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.
"Jewish food is...linked to Jewish customs and ideas that go way back in history."
"I think pork is a huge challenge, because it has such a distinct flavor and bacon is so pervasive in the food movement right now. Recreating that flavor is very challenging."
"There are people in the Kosher world who are excited about change, and there are people who are still hesitant."
--Devra Ferst, food editor at The Forward on Taste Matters
