Kosherfest, a Northeast kosher food and beverage industry event, will be held Nov. 10-11 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Three noted chefs will discuss their insights on the future of kosher, and attendees will have an opportunity to sample their culinary creations.
Chef Araik Grigoryan of Marani Restaurant will showcase his reinvented Georgian dishes. Chef Isaac Bernstein, culinary director for Pomegranate, will bring his expertise in fresh ingredients and charcuterie. Chef Levana Kirschenbaum, cookbook author and culinary instructor, will focus on natural, whole foods cooking using some of Kosherfest’s newest products.
“We are delighted to host such accomplished chefs at Kosherfest,” said Christine Salmon, event manager for Kosherfest. “Each chef offers a unique perspective and different background but they are all thought leaders and luminaries in kosher cuisine.”
The culinary presentations are a complement to the exhibit hall, which consists of more than 325 suppliers, distributors and producers of kosher-certified products. Other attractions at this year’s event include the eighth annual culinary competition, new product showcase and regional pavilions showcasing products from Israel, Argentina and Italy.
More than 6,000 industry professionals are expected to attend, and more than 325 exhibitors will feature kosher-certified products and services for the kosher market. Kosherfest is a business-to-business trade event. Only kosher food and beverage professionals are invited to attend and verification will be checked in the form of business cards and photo identification.
Show hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 10 and 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Nov. 11.
