Kosher Recipe Maven
KosherEye's "Foodie" Friend
In the past, it wasn't unusual to search the internet for a recipe and then "convert" it to conform to Kashruth standards. Today, that search has become easier, and the need to "convert" the recipes has diminished, with the abundance of websites and blogs dedicated to featuring kosher recipes. One of our favorites is Kosher in the Kitch, created by Nina Safar.
KosherEye was very interested in learning more about the dynamic and creative woman behind this very popular and successful venture. Nina was born in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides there with her husband Erez Safar. She comes from a large family, 9 sisters and 2 brothers, and was taught to cook by her mother. Nina would help her prepare tasty meals and delicious treats. "Growing up, there was always a warm home cooked meal and yummy snacks waiting for us after school. Her cinnamon buns and chocolate babka are still my favorite desserts and I love the fact that I can always count on there being freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in her cookie jar!"
When Nina married Erez, she didn't immediately start cooking dinner for her new husband. With her mother living close by, for the first two weeks the newlyweds would go there for dinner. It wasn't long before Nina decided it was time to start cooking dinner in her own kitchen. She wanted to experiment and create complex meals with the criteria they must be quick and easy to prepare. She searched websites and gathered recipes from her family and friends. Growing tired of having to search multiple sites and "wanting instant access to good kosher recipes", Nina decided to use the Internet
