Kosher in Manhattan NY

Meals are kosher when they meet all criteria that Jewish law applies to food and drinks. Invalidating 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.

Observant Jews will not eat meat or poultry unless it is certified kosher: In addition to having been slaughtered by a shochet (ritual slaughterer) in accordance with Jewish law, the meat must have been entirely drained of blood. Before it is cooked, it is soaked in water for half an hour. Then it is placed on a perforated board, sprinkled with coarse salt, which draws out the blood, and left to sit for one hour. At the end of this time, the salt is washed off and the meat is ready for cooking.

In kosher kitchen and in eating kosher meal, meat and poultry may not be combined with dairy products. This necessitates the use of two sets of utensils when consuming kosher meals at restaurant.

Butter, milk or cream cannot be used in preparing kosher dishes made with meat or served together with meat. Oil, pareve margarine, rendered chicken fat or non-dairy cream substitutes are used instead. See List of Typical Jewish Kosher Dishes
