Meet Chaim Szmidt of The Kosher Scene- Kosherstreets New Featured Blogger


Hey KS Fans ,

I am so excited to  introduce  Kosherstreets  NEW FEATURED BLOGGER   – CHAIM SZMIDT of the KOSHER SCENE.

Chaim really does not need my introduction, because before my  discovery of his fantastically informative and thoroughly enjoyable blog, he already has hundreds of fans who not only read his blog, but who listen to his webcast radio show as well.

While browsing through the web (as I do endlessly it seems) I was looking at Levana Kirschenbaum site. for those of you unfamiliar, Levana is of the famous Levana’s Restaurant and cookbooks and who is for me (also a restaurant owner, cookbook author etc..) the pioneer for Kosher Women Chefs. She is one of the first religious Jewish women restaurant owners who is an accomplished chef as well, I am a huge fan of her work. As it happens, so is Mr. Szmidt who also happens to be a close personal friend of Levana (lucky him!). His work was mentioned and so I clicked, and there I found this brilliant blog!

Now everyday I check what’s new on the Kosher Scene and I think you will find it as addictive as I do. Also  when I can, I listen to his Internet radio show . I was fortunate enough to be featured once and had a blast talking about my experience and influences in the kosher food business. His most recent show – Live from Nigrella with all the fun various ladies in the kosher market was great – even though I am sorta insulted I wasn’t invited!!! – Are you reading Chaim :)   hint hint….

The truth is, to see a picture of Chaim, you think what does this scholarly gentleman know of good food? Kosher yes, but food that excites the palate, kosher trends, great cookbooks, new restaurants, is it possible? Well let me tell you, this foodie from Uruguay, knows his stuff, and his passion for food and his incredible knack for spotting a food trend before the fad – makes me an avid reader and fan of his site! When you read his witty and very informative posts, you forget that he looks like a professor of studies and his unique charm makes you want to listen and try everything he talks about.

So, my KS fans – enjoy!

And we at Kosherstreet are hoping that our new friendship with Chaim is a long one and together we will bring you fantastic new posts on everything that’s exciting in Kosher today!

Happy Cooking!

What The Kosher Scene blog is all About:

Eating out these days is far different than it was when our grandparents dined out for those special occasions at one of the few mom and pop restaurants around town.

Dining out is a competitive enterprise these days and all dining establishments are eager for your patronage. Dining out is more than just about food. Is there an interesting event at the particular restaurant? Is a celebrity chef shaping up a certain eatery’s kitchen? Is there a new cookbook out, worthy of your attention? An exotic new product making its appearance in the kosher market? This is the place to find out, this is the place to compare notes.
