With apologies to the old Levy’s Rye commercials, you don’t have to be Jewish to participate in the 2018 Kosher Food & Wine Experience, which will be held at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers on March 5. You do have to be hungry.
You also have to be 21, since alcohol is involved (IDs will be checked at the door), though tickets are transferable.
The event, which began twelve years ago and bills itself as the largest kosher food and wine event in the world, will featured hundreds of wines from over 60 wineries representing nearly every wine-producing region around the world.
But wine is only the half of it at a kosher food event. This year the nosh portion of the KFWE will be satisfied by samplings from over 20 kosher eateries and gourmet specialty food outlets around the tri-state area.
Expect to find sushi, barbecue, French, Mexican, and Caribbean dishes, as well as cakes and pastries. No dairy products will be served in obedience with kosher laws, which prohibit the consumption of meat and milk products in the same meal.
But who needs dairy. Eat, eat!
Tickets, which range in price from $100 to $125, may be purchased here.
