In New York there are about thousands of restaurants. To eat at each of them you’ll need one more life to live. In New York you can eat everything you can think of. For any money. At any time of day or night. There are kosher and gluten free restaurants, bars mozzarella, Tibetan, Greek, Korean, Hawaiian, Moroccan, Mexican, Eritrea and every other nation on Earth.
In New York are born culinary fashions and trends. There are places that are popular for two or three years, after which they close, change the kitchen, chef or move to other locations. Mostly this is the result of public relations, which is equally important, if not more important, than the talent and imagination of the main chef. For example, for several years restaurants Budakan and Budabar are very popular, great restaurants with hundreds of tables and oriental style called “Fusion” menu that mixes Japanese and Latin kitchen.
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.
There are four tree main groups in the kosher food – milk, meat and neutral.
Dairy kosher foods are foods made from milk kosher animals (cows, sheep, goats), and must not contain non-kosher additives.
Kosher meat is not just about whether the animal is kosher or not, but obliges the separately prescribed method of slaughtering the animals. The slaughtering must be entrusted to a trained kosher slaughterer, which using a sharp knife cuts the trachea and esophagus of the animal, causing instant and painless death. This prevents the release of toxic hormones, which animals produces due to stress and fear when going to the slaughter. It is strictly prohibited cruelty to animal, it must not be aware that it will die! The law requires that the mother and cub are not slaughtered in the same day.
After the animal is slaughtered all internal organs are examined in order to determine that there is no internal damage, because if there are such, meat becomes non-kosher. The animal’s body contains a large number of veins and capillaries, which must be removed. Also, it is forbidden to consume blood of animals and birds and the meat before preparing salted and leaves on an inclined surface, so that all the blood is spilled. The whole process must be done within 72 hours after slaughter, in order to prevent the blood clotting.
Kosher is the meat that comes from animals that have split hooves and are ruminants, like beef and mutton, and from poultry are acceptable chicken, duck, goose and turkey.
Neutral kosher food is called Parva and this includes fruits, vegetables, grains and fish. According to kosher rules, it is allowed to pick fruit from trees that are older than three years. Fruits and vegetables must not contain insects and worms, because it automatically excludes from the set of kosher foods.
When it comes to cereals, should be taken into consideration whether the grains are Yoshon or not. If the grain was harvested before Passover, it is Chadash and is forbidden to eat until passes the second day of Pasha. After that, the grains are permitted for use.
All fish that have fins and scales are allowed by the kosher rules, so cod, tuna, trout, salmon are all kosher. Other marine animals, such as lobsters, crabs, octopus and shellfish are not kosher.
