Is Kosher Healthier?

There has been a long break from posts on the blog, but starting with today's few sentences there will be more consistent postings.

A recent NY Times article talks about Hebrew National Hot Dogs and the perception that they are healthier because they are kosher. Whether it is true or not there is definitely a perception in the US that kosher foods are more than likely healtheir than their non kosher counteparts. In Israel that perception does not hold as true. Much more food in Israel is kosher than the US, and it is more often than not whether one's kitchen is maintained as kosher or not that determines whether the food is kosher. Kosher food may more often be associated with traditional meals like Cholent, Blintzes, Kugles and other foods that are not considered very healthy. Its an interesting debate in any case.

Check back soon as I'm going to post a series of cocktail recipes, adapted to make them "Israeli", that are perfect for the summer.
