You may have noticed more variety in the foods offered at our Potlucks; kugels, potato salads, pasta salads etc. They were there because they were cooked in the Beth Ami kitchen following our kosher guidelines. Would you like to make a cold salad made with pasta or rice you’d like to add to the Potluck table? Then come and cook with us in the Beth Ami Kitchen. Check out the pamphlet, Guidelines for Kitchen Use
If you want to bring food from home, just follow the pamphlet that has the Food and Potluck Guidelines.
And if you don’t have an idea of what to make, just check out the Shabbat Pot Luck Recipe book that Mieneke Drake put together for some simple ideas.
Whether you are planning to use the kitchen for a big event or small, check out the newest pamphlet that is now available for you. It’s the Special Events, Use of Kitchen, and it gives you an idea of what needs to be done if you plan on using the Beth Ami Kitchen whether you are planning for a major event like the Scholarship in Residence Program or the Board’s famous Latkes party or even a small event like coming in to make a special dish to be served at the next potluck or planning a tea for your next Chavurah meeting at Beth Ami.
All of the above pamphlets from the CBA Kitchen Committee are also available in printed form in the Beth Ami Office. There is also a general event planning guideline: CBA Program and Event Planning Guide2
A special thank you for all of you who have participated in making the CBA kitchen a happening place. Whether you brought in food to share for our events, donated food or equipment or money for food for our Shabbat lunches, donated your time and labor to be a Mashgiach for one of our events, to organize and clean the kitchen, to fix our elderly freezer or to getting our knives sharpened (and you all know who you are) we appreciate you one and all.
NEW: Ask a question about keeping kosher by using the comments in either the Kitchen Committee blog or Rabbi Miller’s blog, and we’ll get them answered!
