I had the merit to be in Israel in July of this year, and after discussions with David Shire, part owner of the Lone Tree Brewery we arranged for me to make the trek out to his brewery, located in the heart of Gush Etzion.

It’s a small operation – a microbrewery – but it’s a brewery with gumption. Its logo is bright and vivid and promises a kaleidoscope of taste. The hand-crafted beer delivers on this promise, and how!

As you know, as the world’s oldest and largest producer of kosher
chicken and turkey, Empire Kosher has a long history of respecting and
adhering to the rituals of kosher slaughter. However, beginning with
its transfer to current ownership in 2003 , Empire has taken its focus
a step further to ensure that its ethical practices are respected as
diligently as its ritual practices.

“Empire has always been a highly-regarded producer of kosher
products,” Greg Rosenbaum, Empire’s CEO recently told us. “Now, we’re
also developing an admired reputation for being socially and
environmentally conscious, as well as truly natural, in every step of
the production process. Empire is Green Kosher.”

The Exceptional Dessert, LLC, the New York City based baker of boutique kosher cakes and cookies introduces a new line of muffins. Established in 2004, as the Exceptional Brownie, the company expanded in 2007 to include a variety of seasonal desserts. The Exceptional Dessert is known for its all-natural, kosher brownies, cakes and cookies, handcrafted in small batches.

According to co-president Claire Sauerhoff, the muffins were not born out of years of R&D but rather one happy accident. “We wanted to send out samples of our honey cakes and applesauce crumb cakes to retailers for the fall selling season. Unable to find the right sized, most cost effective baking trays, we settled on a muffin tin to bake the samples. When my partner and I saw the finished product, we realized that our samples actually made the perfect muffin … moist inside with a caramelized, crunchy top.”

Who says nothing can get done in Washington?  I recently came back from a food-filled day trip to Washington, D.C. where I attended the 57th Summer Fancy Food Show.  It is the largest marketplace for specialty foods and beverages in North America. The exhibit halls were filled to capacity with as many as 180,000 products including the latest in single-origin chocolate, artisanal cheese, olive oil, salsas, snacks, teas and spice blends, many of them with kosher certification.

I want to share with you a few of my favorite discoveries.

It’s summer and there is nothing quite as refreshing as ice cream or sorbet – well, if you don’t have a pool to dive into to cool off.

A new concept in frozen desserts has hit the streets of New York. Frozen Gelato on a stick – and it’s KOSHER! [National Kosher Supervision (Rabbi Aaron D. Mehlman)]  Less fat that ice cream, using fresh ingredients and no preservatives, the many varieties of PopBars are a low calorie refreshment sure to please. PopBar also makes Sorbet Pops and Yogurt Pops too. In fact, they have such a wealth of flavors that you can create your own bar with your own combination of flavors and toppings.
