But while the linguistic and cultural heritage is ever-present, Jewish kitchen, with its connection to religious rules and exotic ingredients, for many people is “not completely Kosher”.

KOSHER FOOD… WHAT IS IT?

Maschis Delishkes Kosher Cooking Class - Koscher Kochen - Jüdische KücheThe 4000-year history of keeping Jewish food Kosher is special. Kosher food has experienced an impressive boom in the last few decades, and has meanwhile become symbol of Jewish identity.

Who has never heard of Kosher restaurants, Kosher food and Kosher ingredients? Kosher originally means “complete” and “allowed” and today signals above all, a special food that is made in keeping with Jewish law. This particular diet has not been formed as a result of hygienic requirements, due to the climate in the Middle East, or as a leftover of old customs or self-disciplines.

>>You shall not boil a kid in the milk of his mother.<<
Exodus 23: 19

This is how it is written. This is the basis of Kosher cuisine. In principle, therefore, meat and milk must not be cooked, or even consumed, together.
