Jewish Leftovers in South Beach

Joe’s Stone Crab is one of the spots on a new walking tour of South Beach’s Jewish (if decidedly unkosher) restaurants.

The ‘Genius of Modern Jewish Cooking’

All hail the new “genius” of modern Jewish cooking.

That’s how Eater Philadelphia critic Bill Addison describes Michael Solomonov, the mastermind behind nouveau-Jewish hotspots Abe Fisher and Zahav.

Saying Goodbye to a Southern-Kosher Pioneer

Back in April, Dish profiled Mildred Covert, author of three landmark Southern-kosher cookbooks. This week, we got word that she recently passed away in New Orlenas at the age of 88.

Kosher Cheese Kicks It up a Notch

A Kickstarter-funded experiment in kosher cheese has become a serious business, the Jewish Link of New Jersey reports.

Founder Mark Bodzin says he’s close to selling out his second run of the aged farmstead cheddar, whose production involved sourcing special Chalav Yisroel raw milk culture for rennet from France.

Bodzin produced the cheese at Vermont’s Shelburne Farms food incubator; it’s got their label.
