Is it kosher





Kosher is not a style of cooking and there is no such thing as kosher-style food.

Traditional Jewish recipes can be non-kosher if not prepared in accordance with Jewish religious dietary laws. 
Kosher means fit and proper and stands for quality. It really means "fit for use" . 

The word Kosher has been borrowed by many languages, including English and is used in daily life as well as in movies, and gives a special condiment to English when it comes to describe something legitimate, "This don’t smell kosher". 

Not all Jews obey the dietary laws, or keep kosher. Most reform Jews consider the laws of kashrus to be an outdated ritual and ignore them completely. Others keep kosher at home, but not while dining out.  

Orthodox Jews fully obey the  laws of kashrus, believing that they are divine laws. Conservative Jews tend to keep kosher consistently as well, although their rules of kashrus are slightly less strict than those of Orthodox Jews.

Some are sure that eating meat and dairy together interferes with digestion, to which some will say completely the difference. Perhaps those regulations were good for ancient time due to environmental conditions, i.e. sanitary slaughter or lack of refrigeration .


Foods are kosher when it meet all that required from Jewish law that applies to food and drinks.  Characteristics may range from the presence of a mixture of meat and milk, to the use of produce from Israel that has not been tithed properly or even the use of cooking utensils which had previously been used for non-kosher food.

Why animals must be slaughtered in a certain manner, why meat and milk are not to be mixed, why shellfish is forbidden? 

There is nowhere to find the reasons to these questions. Orthodox Jews observe these laws because they were told to.
