The Good Food Awards, which salutes excellence from craft food producers, has kicked off this year’s call for entries with a new category: preserved fish.

So maybe it’s time to enter that gefilte fish or Gaspé salmon. It could take a prize alongside artisan beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, cider, coffee, confections, honey, oils, pantry, pickles, preserves and spirits — the other categories.

Now Some Sad News…

Soup and knish

And More Sad News…

And from Cleveland comes word that Moishe Rosenberg, owner of local stalwart Unger’s Kosher Market, has died. His family will continue to run the store, which opened in 1977, according to the Cleveland Jewish News.
