The Jewish Echo Visits Kosherfest

According to an old Jewish saying, there are three things that would really hit the spot in the life of a Jewish man, but unfortunately they are not meant to be: a steaming cup of tea after Kol Nidrei on Yom Kippur, a cigarette after the Shabbos day, and cholent with beer after the afikoman on Pesach. Someone is going to have to find a new ending to that pithy quip because this Pesach you can have your beer and drink it too. Welcome to Kosherfest 2017.

Seeing and tasting all that food can make a man hungry! Having scouted out the exhibits through the morning, we put together lunch in quick order: Sliced bread from Angels Bakery, smeared with a red wine sauce from KosherCo; sliced summer sausage from Aaron’s; and olive turkey breast from KJ Poultry. A deli sandwich needs a kosher pickle – and Guss’ Pickles had them in stock! We rounded off the meal with French fries, a raspberry chipotle dipping sauce from Mikee, and an ice-cold beer from the Pardubicky Pivovar Brewery in the Czech Republic.
