Our Radio Broadcasts for this Week


This evening, Monday the 12th of December, at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) we will finally have the long awaited – twice postponed – interview with Norene Gilletz from gourmania.com. Norene published her first cookbook in 1968 (Second Helpings), since then she’s written several more, including the just revised The NEW Food Processor Bible: 30th Anniversary Edition.

On Wednesday, the 14th, at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) we will have a conversation with Jesse Blonder (Director of the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts, located at 1407 Coney Island Avenue, Tel: 718.758.1339), and Chef Avram Wiseman (Dean of CKCA). This program was prerecorded last week at Cafe Venezia, on Coney Island Avenue,  in Brooklyn.

We spoke about trends in kosher food, adapting non kosher cuisine to the kosher diet, and what one can learn in the professional courseware, or in the workshops (day long to week long) geared to the public at large.

Meanwhile, if you missed it or just want to hear it again, you can catch our last broadcast on The Evolution of Kosher Wine, Post Kosherfest Talk. The show aired on November, the 16th and my guests were Costas Mouzouras from Gotham Wine and Liquors in Manhattan in the first half. In the second half we spoke with a group of foodie bloggers in the second half: Alessandra Rovati (Dinner in Venice), Esti Berkowitz (Primetime Parenting), Roberta Scher (Kosher Eye) and Suzzanah Raff (The Kosher Shopaholic).

Please don’t forget to listen to our show this evening, December 12th, 2011 at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) and again on Wednesday the 14th, at 8:00pm (Eastern Time). We’ll be waiting for you!

Graduation Time at CKCA!


Yesterday the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts held their graduation parties for students completing the latest Baking & Pastry Arts and Culinary Arts Programs.

Except for Jesse Blonder's photo of the Culinary Arts Program graduates

Chef Philippe Kaemmerlé, the instructor of the Baking & Pastry Program, trained in France, emigrated to New York in 1986, at the age of 28,  and worked as a Pastry Chef in some of New York’s most prestigious restaurants (including Club 21, Windows on the World  and Aquavit, among others). He’s done extensive work with various celebrated caterers and started teaching at CKCA in February 2010.

"Delicious" is an understatement!

Chef Philippe‘s meticulously trained Baking & Pastry Arts graduates – six in number, this time around -  presented us with eclairs, bavarians, chocolate cake, fruit pies, bread, cheese cake and more; presentation was both aesthetic and delicious!

In the early evening Chef Avram Wiseman (no stranger to these pages!) – CKCA‘s Dean and Instructor of the Culinary Arts Program – presented his graduating class of eleven students.

With a cocktail style buffet we were treated to shitake tapanades, deviled eggs, salmon pinwheels, stuffed tomatoes, sushi, spicy meatballs and an assortment of other tasty delicacies.

Great presentation, incredibly tasty!

Having eaten at various establishments where CKCA grads are employed, having tasted what these students prepared, I have no doubt that they are bound for glory and success at some fine restaurants.

Congratulations graduates! Congratulations Chef Philippe, congratulations Chef Avram, congratulations Jesse! But, stay warned… we will review the eateries where the members of these two graduating classes may find themselves.
