Gefilte Fish

Gefilteria Gets Kosher Seal In Time For Rosh HaShanah

It could have been a Yiddish curse for religiously observant foodies: May your gefilte fish become upscale, artisanal and hip ... but not be certified kosher.

That’s what happened this spring, when much-buzzed-about gourmet versions of the classic Ashkenazi dish began appearing around New York.

Gefilte fish is going upscale without forgetting its kosher roots.

The Gentrification Of The Gefilte

Ashkenazi cuisine goes artisanal and upscale — just don’t look for a heksher.

The humble gefilte fish — the perfunctory seder meal starter long mocked for its blandness — is finally getting some respect.

At Kutsher’s Tribeca it’s made from wild halibut and garnished with micro arugula, while at the Gefilteria it’s crafted from sustainably-raised fish and topped with a freshly prepared horseradish.

Gefilte Fish Gets Its Own Video Game

I thought something smelled fishy when I received an email from fellow blogger Esther Kustanowitz today. Indeed it was. I was hopeful that the skilled writer had sent me a well-crafted sermon that I could simply deliver on Rosh Hashanah morning, but instead it was only an email to inform me that her friend Asael Kahana of K/Logic had created an interactive Rosh Hashanah card that is a mashup between Gefilte fish and Space Invaders.
