Why is this kitchen different from all other kitchens? Join NKBA member, owner of Regency Designs & Interiors, Rochelle Kalisch, CKD, to discuss preparing the Kosher Kitchen for the most challenging holiday on the Jewish calendar: Passover!
The “wise” student will learn to tell the difference between products and preparations that are merely Kosher and those that are Kosher for Passover.
The “wicked” student will learn not to ask for ham on matzoh at Bubbe’s house.
The “simple” student will ask “Why do we observe these rituals?”
And the student “who does not know the questions to ask” will learn how to prepare their kitchen in 50 square feet, what types of china, linen and glassware to use; and how to make a reservation at a Passover Hotel to avoid the tumult!
Kosher refreshments will be served.
