Madonna Is Seeking A Kosher Chef For Her Six Children

For £110,000 a year, millions of “Like A Virgin” fans are headed to WikiHow to learn how to cook kosher, because Madonna, pop’s aging queen, is looking for a kosher chef to feed her and her six children.

“Super-yacht experience is essential,” the ad says. And Madge knows her halachot. The ad states that the cooking rules include “no dairy and meat served together, no pork, fish must have fins and scales — no swordfish, shellfish”.

In true Jewish style, Madonna, who refers to herself as ‘the Principal’ in this ad, says Asian-Sushi/Sashimi and Italian cuisine are among her favorites.

While Madonna isn’t traditionally Jewish, she has dabbled in Kabbalah, fasted on the 9th of Av and adopted the Jewish name of Esther. And while we knew Madonna was liked her Jewish tradition, we had no idea she was Jewish enough to swear off lobsters and cheeseburgers.

When Madonna wore a red string around her wrist (a Jewish folk custom said to ward off the ‘evil eye’), she started a global trend. With Madonna at the helm, will kosher be making its grand comeback?

Ah, Madonna. Never stop surprising us.
