This week I visited Kosherfest, the world’s largest kosher food show. Here are the products that the official panel voted best in class in the New Products Competition.  (They were judged on the basis of newness, quality, taste, saleability and retail price.) If you’re interested in these or any kosher food products, check us out at  Kosher.com. With 15,000 kosher food items including fresh meat and baked goods, we have something for everyone.

Kosherfest, which took place this week at the NJ Meadowlands,  is the the largest kosher food exhibition in the world. This was my first visit and will not be my last. There was an amazing collection of vendor showcases, cooking demos, and new food finds. (And did I mention you get to taste stuff?)

These are my top 5 finds from the show, in no particular order:


 

Kosherfest: I Came, I Saw, I Ate!

This week I went to Kosherfest at the NJ Meadowlands, that mega-food expo that lets professional foodies, industry types and just everyday folks savor the newest products.  It’s been going on annually for more than twenty years, but this was my first time there. What can I say, I’m hooked!  Picture two solid days with thousands of people tasting and sniffing, munching and crunching on tantalizing samples all day long.  And the aromas … out of this world.

We brought our giant Kosher.com cart with us, filled to the top and overflowing with as many of our 15,000 groceries as our creative and hard-working team could stuff into it. I got to meet face-to-face with so many people.  And, of course, I ate a ton of great food.  I’m told that there were more than 500 newly kosher certified foods introduced at the show. Hey, somebody had to try them all, right?  The hardest part of it was strategically planning the dairy options around meat.  I was glad I held off on the meat samples on the first day, because by the end of the day I craved my favorite dairy coffee beverage—J&J Iced Cappuccino.  It was set up water cooler style, with cups that you could fill to your heart’s content!

Quick & Kosher

If you caught my appearance on WABC’s Morning Show this past Sunday, you probably noticed that we went with the Kosher.com apron.  (If you missed it, you can watch the clip below.)  It definitely wasn’t made for a pregnant woman—I almost cried when I saw it—but I think it worked out OK.  After all, I’m not trying to cover up the fact that I’m expecting—I just didn’t want to distract everybody from the subject at hand: how to fix a yummy, elegant Rosh Hashanah meal on a budget

Guess who will be on the WABC NY Morning News show at 9:45 am this Sunday, September 6, 2009?  Yup!  I’ll be there, cooking up a special Rosh Hashanah dinner and discussing Kosher.com’s top 10 tips for cutting costs while entertaining on the holiday.

Naturally, I’m nervous about what’s most important—what I should wear!  Black is slimming, but how slim can you look at 7 months pregnant? Color looks good on TV, better than black, but then I might take up the whole screen… Alas, the powers-that-be thought I should be wearing a Kosher.com chef’s coat (not slimming, people!), until I pointed out that it doesn’t come in maternity sizes. Maybe we can find a Kosher.com apron.

This blog is proof of G-d’s infinite humor.  If you had told me a couple of years ago that I would be doing a blog on cooking or food, I would have escorted you out the door, laughing all the way.  I’m very upfront about this: my mom was allergic to stoves and I grew up on take-out food.  I thought all meals come out of little cartons or were served to you by someone wearing a black bowtie.  This wasn’t all bad.  Preparing dinner consisted of deciding which restaurant to dial.


 

For Jewish Mothers on Mother’s Day

When it comes to honoring mom, some Jews view Mother’s Day as an occasion that  shouldn’t be limited to the second Sunday in May.  Since we are commanded to honor our parents every day, the Jewish attitude suggests that expressing gratitude to mom should be more than a once-a-year event.

But, I’m sure there isn’t a Jewish mother (me included) who does not appreciate the flowers, phone calls, cards – and most importantly, the hugs – that result from this special day.  And rightfully so.


 

7 Reasons Obama has Gone Kosher

In an effort to better prepare himself for the grueling emotional and physical strain of the Presidency, Barack Obama has pledged to go kosher, citing the food’s proven health advantages over that of the typical American diet. Though most White House staff (and even Michelle Obama) have balked at such a drastic culinary shift, they should have seen it coming. Here’s why:

  1. It was meant to be. How many people do you know whose name contains the letters to make the word kosher? Barack Hussein Obama’s name does.
  2. Though McCain visited the Kotel (or Western Wall), Jerusalem’s holiest site, while touring the Middle East, only Obama was seen roaming the shuks of the city afterwards, Blackberry in one hand and bowl of cholent in the other.

Well, better than sliced challah, anyway :) Recent information gathered from Mintel’s Global New Products Database for the year indicated that kosher foods are the leading the pack for new product launches!

What’s really interesting is that the growth isn’t entirely from the religious market.

Newspapers and reporters around the country are reporting a “kosher meat shortage.”  Agriprocessors kosher-meat plant ceased all of its operations due to a raid on its plant in May, charging them with employment of illegal immigrants and underage workers.  “Financial problems at the company that was the target of one of the largest immigration raids in U.S. history have triggered a shortage of kosher meat and raised prices nationwide,” says USA Today.  The meat shortage has affected most butchers and supermarkets around the country.
