Kosher school of culinary arts in Israel

Yesterday on NPR there was a spot on a new Kosher cooking school in Jerusalem, interviews with some students and instructors. Discussed the difficulties of attending a generalized cooking school if keeping Kosher. The students were ecstatic. Thought I'd give a heads up over here.

  1. Very interesting...I went to their website and found that only men are accepted at this time for the full course; they plan to offer short seminar courses for both men and women later this year. I never thought that men and women cooking in the same kitchen was against halacha...

      They're offering a 3 month women's program, plus a baking module for this spring-- as well as a 5 day Pesach cooking classes. They hope to also organize short-term programs. Short-term classes for teenagers are now going on.

        I'm still not getting why they offer 10-month, professional courses for men and only 3-month courses for women.

          Women learn more quickly.
