We spent a decadent evening at the Kosher Food & Wine Experience 2012 at Chelsea Piers in NYC, and are excited to share with you the latest trends in kosher food and presentation.
The overriding trend is that kosher caterers and kosher restaurants are aiming to create a “taste experience.” They are using innovative ingredients and flavor combinations, and creating fun experiences like having us squirt sauce into our mouth with a dropper before eating the delicious appetizer. Here are some of the standouts.
Simple and creative, these Beet, Apple and Jicama Skewers by Gemstone Catering make a great appetizer! They’re beautiful, tasty and amazingly refreshing! You can try them on your own with almost any combination!
Kosher Indian food from Shalom Bombay included a wonderful cashew Chicken Korma, and a tender and delicious Towa Beef in a tomato pepper sauce.
Pomegranate introduced us to many new types of dips and spreads, including this tasty Purple Eggplant Dip.
The Barbecue Brisket on a Corn Pancake with Pickled Watermelon Rind from got cholent? Inc. turned a unique combination of flavor profiles into a wonderfully tasty dish.
Talk about experiencing your food! Silverleaf Caterers offered up this tasty treat – Duck Confit Meatballs with a pipette (similar to an eye dropper) filled with sauce that is squirted into your mouth before you eat the meatballs. The meatball mixes with the sauce in your mouth for an amazing taste experience. Fun!
