The first Kosher Food Blogger (KFB) Conference, coming to New York on November 12, 2012, is an event not to be missed. An all-star lineup of experts including our very own, Jamie Geller, are ready to show food bloggers, brands and foodies how to build a better brand, blog and audience and turn that passion into profit.

The KFB Conference brings together well-recognized food bloggers and professionals and makes them accessible to conference participants. Speakers are chosen for the experience and innovative thinking that they bring to the kosher food blogging community. The Conference programming is built around the topics that are crucial for building an education on social media, photography, writing, branding, marketing, and technology in our current environment.

No furniture?  No problem.  Leave it to Jamie Geller to make moving look easy.  Two weeks after the lift left with her family’s furniture, Jamie and her husband Nachum invited friends and family to a farewell barbeque before her family’s aliyah to Israel next week.

Shoshana Neiman from Ambiance Events planned the party and chose a soft yellow and white color scheme to convey a warm, summery feeling.  The whole event came together effortlessly thanks to Shoshana’s help even though rain threatened and they had to move the party inside with much anxiety over fitting so many people in such a small place.  They nixed the large tables and lined the chairs up against the wall, you would never have known there were 100 people there.


 

New Kosher Restaurant In SoHo – Jezebel

The new kosher restaurant in SoHo has created such a buzz that there was a huge article a few weeks ago in the Wall Street Journal on the New York City kosher restaurant scene.  The new restaurant, Jezebel, is hoping to find a place in the high end, hip restaurant scene that has made Prime KO so successful.  Recently, I visited Prime KO, a kosher Japanese steakhouse on the Upper West Side, late on a Saturday night.  The place was packed and I was surprised by how many didn’t fit any obvious Jewish stereotype — many of the patrons were not even Jewish, let alone kosher!  Prime KO simply serves great food and a fun atmosphere that attracts all kinds of people.

Jezebel in SoHo is the first restaurant for B&Y Hospitality, standing for British and Yiddish, and the owners, Senderowicz and Stimler, hope to bring kosher up to a whole new level.  Starting with the decor, they have infused the space with a Jewish theme.  They showcase family heirlooms and black and white photos that pay homage to their families.  As well as original artwork featuring Jewish icons superimposed in place of the original visage of famoust portraits – Mayor Bloomberg as George Washington, for instance.


 

Artisinal Food – What Does It Mean?

It seems like I can’t walk down one aisle in the supermarket or drive down one street without seeing the word “artisan.” Domino’s has a new line of artisan pizzas, Dunkin Donuts has a new line of artisan bagels, and Tostitos has a line of artisan tortilla chips. What’s with this new trend, and what does it really mean?

Literally, an artisan is a skilled craftsman or worker. In the context of food, artisan usually refers to an item of food that is handcrafted, rather than mass-produced. Until recently, the term “artisan” was mostly used for bread; artisan bread is prepared in smaller batches, with special attention to the quality and number (the fewer, the better) of ingredients, the process, and a return to bread with a tougher texture than its preservative-enhanced store-bought counterparts.

This week all our thoughts turned towards Shavuot, which is only one week away now.  The three day (for most of us not living in Israel) holiday that is fast approaching.  Here on JOK we brought out the cheese plate, we helped you construct one for an appetizer or serve cheese for dessert.  The Cheese Guy gave us a cheese primer and we had so many wonderful lessons to get ready for Shavuot, from blintzes to cheesecake to surviving a 3 day yom tov.  Here are the top 5 articles form the week on our site and below that we scoured the internet for cheesey recipes for more inspiration.

Picture this scene: you’re cooking dinner and realllly want to have that piece of shnitzel that’s dangling off of the whole chicken breast. But you hold off.

Or how about this: your friend offers you a taste of her salami that has been drying in the kitchen for 2 months. She never shares but is willing to give you a bite of this aged delicacy. But you hesitate.
