What is Kosher Food All About?
Find out when you visit LA’s Pico Robertson neighborhood in this episode of Soul Food, with host Kiran Deol. Pico Robertson is a neighborhood in West Los Angeles that is home to a wealth of Kosher restaurants and grocery stores. It’s an ideal place to learn about the origins and practical intricacies of Kashrut – or Kosher laws. Deol visits a giant kosher supermarket, a kosher Mexican restaurant, a kosher bar/restaurant and enjoys a model Sabbath meal with a religious Jewish family. Featured in this video are dishes like chopped liver, geffilte fish, brisket, a fake bacon and egg sandwich and Carnitas burrito filling. And because this was shot in LA, there’s a whole section on cilantro! Yeah. Cilantro possesses kosher ramifications.
