The Kosher Wine Society is excited to report an amazing development in the world of Kosher Food and Wine.  An “unprecedented cultural, wine, and food pairing" event will be taking place at City Winery on January 11th.  It will be a 7-course food, wine and artist pairing.  Below are some details we have gathered from the source.


The IJPA (International Jewish Presenters Association) and New York’s City Winery announces the first ever Top Kosher Chef pairing with not just wine, but 7 courses of Jewish Culture. On January 11, 2011, as the opening luncheon to the annual conference called “Schmooze” where hundreds of producers and directors from Jewish Community Centers around the globe gather with their colleagues, this luncheon will be a unique combination of the best in kosher cuisine and Jewish Culture. The lunch is open to the public with limited tickets available at


Seven top chefs will prepare Kosher cuisine that will be paired with seven kosher wines and performances by seven different artists from different disciplines.  While the food is under Kosher Supervision by Rabbi Yisroel Finman-Rav Hamachshir, the Artists & Wine pairings are under the so-called supervision of producer Michael Dorf.


1st Course:

The comedian Jackie Hoffman, who recently starred on Broadway in the Addams Family and is currently performing in a new solo show, will be paired with “Grandma’s Arugula Salad” prepared by Scott Magram of “My Most Favorite Food,” an upper West Side restaurant and caterer.  This course will be paired with a Kosher Italian sparkling Prosecco by Bartenura.


2nd Course:

Sidra Bell, an award-winning dancer with her own dance troupe will perform her latest work. She will be matched with Chef Jeff Nathan of Abigaels.  Chef Nathan is one of the best-known kosher chefs in the market with frequent public appearances including television spots.  His special course of Green Tea noodles with stir-fry vegetables in lemon vinaigrette will combine perfectly with a Kosher Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.


3rd Course:

The theatre producer and playwright Ari Roth will read from his latest work and will be paired with a beet salad from Pomegranate Chefs in Brooklyn and will be paired by City Winery with the only kosher Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon,


4th Course:

Israel’s biggest music star for many years, NOA, also known by her name Achinoam Nini, will perform a couple of songs in a rare and intimate setting to go along with a Yemenite Mushroom Koogle, specially prepared by Mike Gershovitz of Mike’s Bistro.  These will be paired with a Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc Fusion by Segal in the Upper Galilee in Israel.


5th Course:

New York photographer Kfir Ziv has both a commercial and art photography business and uses food in many of his works.  He will show some work while new chefs from the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts in Brooklyn serve an assortment of sauces for Falafel. This course will be paired with City Winery’s recently released “Riesling Schmiesling” a crisp dry Riesling from the Finger Lakes in New York.


6th Course:

“New York Times Book of the Year” winner, Joshua Henkin will read from his latest work. His reading will be paired with “a meaty dish for a meaty novel” by Seth Warshaw of New Jersey’s ETC Steakhouse along with a California Cabernet by Baron Herzog.


7th Course:

The final course will be a short screening of the acclaimed film “BUDRUS,” with a talk by the film’s producers, Ronit Avni and Sandi DuBowski. Dan Lenchner of Manna Catering will be making “a special dessert uniting two divided flavors”. This will be matched with a Carmel Winery’s late harvest Gewurztraminer from Sha’al Vineyard, in Zichron Yaacov, Upper Galilee, Israel
