I am so touched that you snatched up tickets within hours of our party announcement – so totally cool!!! I am all teary at the thought of it, seriously. I really love you all so much. From Philly, to all parts of Jersey, to Jericho and 5-towns, and Queens and BK and more you came! Did I say I love you all yet?!?!?

Light the Menurkey and Celebrate Thanksgivukkah

If you haven’t heard or realized it yet, Hanukkah is really early this year.  So early, that the first day of Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving here in America.  While the anomalies of the Jewish calendar never fail to amaze the casual observer, the confluence of one of America’s most popular secular holidays with one of the best known Jewish holidays occurring on the same day in a happenstance that will not happen again for over 70,000 years* has led to a feathered flurry of holiday mashups.

In the spirit of gobbling good fun, here are some of our favorite Hanukkah/Thanksgiving articles, products and recipe ideas.

The third annual kosher social media dinner that precedes Kosherfest will be held on October 28th at the J Soho restaurant.  Tons of food bloggers, writers and personalities head to NY for Kosherfest.  The dinner is a time for them to get together, socialize and learn about some of the new products even before the show.  It follows our day long, Kosher Food Bloggers Conference, an event for food bloggers and professionals to openly discus, learn and network together.  This year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Kosherfest, they are honoring some of the kosher food pioneers, Susie Fishbein, Chef Laura Frankel, Norene Gilletz, Gil Marks, Levana Kirschenbaum, Menachem Lubinsky, Joan Nathan and several more.

Chef Laura contributes regularly to our site (click here to see all her article and recipes) and our magazine and we are so happy for her recognition along with so many other of our talented foodie friends, all of whom have paved the way for the rest of us.

I figure you may be wondering about my new Joy of Kosher cookbook, like what’s the Mah Nishtanah this time. So I interviewed myself, asking the questions people ask me.   If I missed anything you just gotta know, ask in the comments and I will answer you – a whole lot more fun than talking to myself.

Q: So this is your third cookbook. Did you always want to write cookbooks?

Kosher BBQ Festival in Kansas City

I’m pretty excited. It’s not every day that I get to cook for a Food Network celebrity. That’s right… thanks to the Kosher Connection I connected with Simon Majumdar who was conducting research for his upcoming book, Fed White and Blue. As Simon journey’s across America, exploring the variety of culture, experiences and food this country has to offer, he also wanted to experience the best of Kosher Food. Well, there’s no kosher restaurant here in Kansas City (KC), so I invited him to a Shabbat meal.

Simon’s been to KC before, he has a passion for BBQ and competes in the American Royal each year. This year’s no different, but as well as spending shabbat at the This American Bite table, he’ll also be judging the second annual Kosher BBQ Festival. I had the honor of judging the festival last year, but passed on the opportunity to do so again this year because this time, I’m competing!

New Finds from 2013 Fancy Food Show

It is so much fun to be able to attend the fancy food show and learn about the new products and new trends in the food industry. Then to read all the highlights of the show from other perspectives and find out all the things I missed at this huge food show. According to the Specialty Food Association who hosts the event the top 5 trends were, Reinvented Frozen Treats, Grains and Seeds in New Places, Global Meal Starter, Retro Mania Done New, and Be Your Own Mixologist. Look out for specialty foods across all these categories in stores near you and note some of the articles and recipes we will be sharing in the coming year follow these trends as well.

Last time I attended the show (Fancy Food Show 2011) I remember noticing many new loose leaf tea companies. This year I found that specialty salts were all the rage. Flavored, smoked, or blended, these salts were everywhere. Fortunately for us the company Salt Works has a line of smoked salts with OU certification and hopefully will continue to offer more flavored salts with certification, click here to see Salt Works Kosher certified salts.

The 2nd annual Long Island Kosher BBQ Championship at Temple Beth Torah in Westbury hosted 22 teams and thousands of visitors this past Sunday on a gorgeous sunny day. The Joy of Kosher team including Tamar Genger, Executive Editor of JoyofKosher.com, Shifra Klein, Editor-in-Chief of Joy of Kosher Magazine and Shlomo Klein, Chief Marketing Officer of Joy of Kosher Magazine joined over 30 others to judge this year’s competition which was sponsored by Fairway Market.

Back in 2010 I first wrote about the Asbee Kosher BBQ Championship in Memphis, then in it’s 22nd year and still going strong today.  It is amazing how much kosher BBQ has grown since then. As news of Asbee spread more cities decided to start their own competition and today there are several cities from Atlanta to Kansas City to Alabama and New York with their own Kosher BBQ championships and the Jewish people couldn’t be happier.
