What Makes Food Kosher?
The word “kosher” is originally derived from the Hebrew word “kasher,” meaning pure and suitable to eat. For food to be considered kosher, it must comply with the complex standards of the Jewish law.
Under the rules of kosher cooking, you cannot serve meat and dairy at the same time. What’s more, when preparing kosher food, cooks should never use the same tools for both meat and dairy meals. Certain meats and seafood are prohibited entirely!
For practitioners of the Jewish religion, eating kosher isn’t just about dietary preferences; it’s about respecting and honoring hundreds of years of tradition. Naturally, it’s important to understand the intricacies of this practice in order to show your guests the respect they deserve. Though the process of preparing a kosher meal is important, it isn’t necessarily easy.
No longer worry if you can’t fully understand the complex intricacies of kosher meal-planning in time for your event! City Roots Catering and Events is here to take the stress from your shoulders. We provide both full service and drop-off catering options, guaranteeing that you’ll have everything you need to feed guests of any sort of event.
