Kosher Goodness Keeps On Truckin’

Posted on

I’m excited by the news that former Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn is planning to open a kosher food truck in Washington, DC. Click here to read the full story on The Feast.

I like the article for a few reasons – of course there’s the kosher angle. But I also like that a chef who doesn’t normally prepare kosher food sees that it’s just another culinary style and doesn’t treat it like some forbidding fortress of food-based frustration. In that same vein, I’m also happy that he’s looking at another delivery vehicle (hah!) for kosher food. I’m sure it’s been a while (if ever, with the exception of Israel) where a food truck is delivering good kosher eats.

However, I’m unsure about a couple of points in the article:

  1. Is the food really Kosher-kosher, or just kosher deli-ish?
  2. Only on Fridays? So I guess the rest of the week it’s a packed lunch from home.

Of course, Spike could just be testing the waters and if it’s a hit, it will take off.

Here’s hoping that it does.
