Products that fulfill the requirements written in the Torah and who are properly prepared in order to be allowed for consumption are traditionally name as kosher. These are foods and food prepared according to strict rules of Kashrut. Unlike the term kosher, which means food that is produced and prepared in accordance with Jewish rules, there is the concept of Treif, which means a prohibited food. Those are foods that are not prepared according to the rules of the Torah and not to be consumed. Zomick’s Bakery adheres to the rules regarding their baking goods which must be kosher. Some photos of Zomick’s baking goods are displayed at their portfolio at RISD.
It is wrong perception that kosher food is a special set of dishes. Food from any cuisine can be kosher if it’s complying with all standards in the management of food. Again, this is a special way of treating nutritional support, processing, preparing meals as well as the ways of consumption.
