Kosher Restaurants New Orleans
New Orleans offers a considerable number of restaurants offering kosher food. Kosher cuisine describes food that has been deemed fit for consumption according to kashrut, the Jewish laws that govern what they eat. Some examples of food that they are not allowed to consume include any part of what are considered unclean animals such as pork and almost all types of insects, dishes that contain a combination of meat and milk, and any animal that has not been slaughtered in accordance to a specific ritual called shechita. Even the preparation and handling of the food at New Orleans kosher restaurants must abide by these strict laws. Although kosher cuisine is specifically prepared for Jewish individuals, it is perceived as especially wholesome and healthy, making it a favorite of everyone.
