Argentinian Hot Chocolate
When in Buenos Aires, KosherEye discovered a hot chocolate drink so deep in flavor, so rich in chocolate, so fragrant with vanilla that we have made it ours; we have enjoyed it over and over and over again! In Argentina it is called El Submarino -– we simply call it the best hot chocolate ever, period!
1 cup steaming hot whole milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces of a semi sweet chocolate bar
Heat the milk and sugar until very hot, but not boiling.
Pour into a mug.
Plunge the chocolate bar into the hot milk with a spoon. (Sink the submarine!)
Stir until the chocolate has melted and is incorporated into the hot milk.
And, if you mix it correctly – there will be melted chocolate sludge at the very bottom of the cup. We like this part the best and enjoy it to the very last drop.

Kosher Industry Pioneers Honored
NEW YORK — On the night before Kosherfest, nearly 100 world-renowned kosher food personalities, cookbook authors, brands, and kosher foodies honored eight kosher food industry pioneers who have each achieved significant milestones in the kosher food industry. The honorees included; Susie Fishbein, Laura Frankel, Norene Gilletz, David Herzog, Levana Kirschenbaum, Menachem Lubinsky, Gil Marks, and Joan Nathan. Each was presented a keepsake Rosle soup ladle, especially engraved for the occasion.
The evening was co-produced by parenting blogger Esti Berkowitz of primetimeparenting.com and Roberta Scher co-founder and executive editor of KosherEye.com. Even as these pioneers were being recognized for their contributions to the kosher food industry, announcements of new projects were revealed. Gil Marks and Susie Fishbein will be collaborating for Zman Magazine, a monthly column featuring a unique presentation of Jewish culinary history and culture with panache. Joan Nathan shared news that the milestone series Jewish Cooking in America, which was nominated for the James Beard Award for Best National Television Food Show will soon be available on DVD.
In addition to the Kosher Pioneers, there were surprises for those newer on the kosher scene. Several individuals were recognized for their vision, their entrepreneurial skills and their success in paving new paths in the kosher world. The 2013 Cutting Edge Kosher Awards went to Gloria Kobrin, developer of the KosherCookbook.com; Jesse Blonder, founder of the Kosher Culinary Institute, the first state-of-the art Culinary Institution especially for the kosher-minded chef, Jamie Geller of the Kosher Media Network, and Alex Rapaport of Masbia Soup Kitchen. Each was presented a specially selected chef's knife provided by Shun of Japan.

Annual Kosherfest Culinary Competition
by Menachem Lubinsky, KosherToday Editor in chief
At times, schmoozing with Ms. Geller and, at times, glancing back at the array of ingredients behind them, the three contestants produced a striking dish within the half hour allotted them. Frankly, I felt lucky that I was not a judge because it was just such a difficult choice. All three were simply outstanding and I would not hesitate to have any of them cook a dinner for me that included the president of the United States.
I usually get to see just snippets of one of the best attended events at the annual Kosherfest, the Annual Kosherfest Culinary Competition. This time, I stood my ground the entire 30 minutes. That's right just 30 minutes to watch three leading chefs of upscale kosher foods make an extraordinary dish. In the end it was Chef Casey Colaneri, the executive chef of the Sushi Metsuyan Restaurant in Monsey, NY and Teaneck, NJ, who won the $1000 prize. Chef Casey went so far as to predict that kosher cuisine would go far beyond where it is today.
Chef Casey Colaneri
Each of the three competing chefs was given 30 minutes to cook one entrée from scratch using only a basket of mystery ingredients and a limited pantry of basic staples. Colaneri competed with Jose Soto, Executive Chef, Basil Restaurant in Brooklyn; and David Teyf, Chef & Owner, Lox Café at the Jewish Museum in Manhattan. The emcee was best-selling cookbook author and Joy of Kosher and Kosher Media Network founder Jamie Geller as host. The competition was sponsored by Jack's Gourmet, an innovative kosher meat company that made waves last year with the introduction of a high quality, surprisingly authentic bacon substitute made from beef called "facon." The panel of judges was comprised of Philippe Kaemmerle, Chef and Instructor at The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts, Jack Silberstein, Owner, Jack's Gourmet, and Roberta Scher, Co-founder and Managing Editor of Koshereye.comAdd a comment
