Jewish Kids Answer Timeless Questions About Jewish Food


Why is there a hole in a bagel? Why does a matzo ball float? What does a gefilte fish look like?

The Jewish Food Experience (JFE), a project launched in December 2012 posed these questions to a panel of experts (OK, they are a bunch of toddlers) and got some funny and endearing answers.

The Jewish Food Experience is a website that brings people together through the universal language of Jewish food, which is so much a part of Jewish culture, tradition and even religion. And food is a shared experience, so JFE also wants to help you make the most of times with families and friends.

On the website, local “foodies” including chefs, restaurateurs, wine experts, food critics and writers share exciting news, recipes and stories.It's a place to find Jewish food with modern twists, international flavors, tastes for holidays and occasions, the latest about the local Jewish food scene, volunteer efforts to fight hunger, food-related events and recipes that will include locally sourced and organic options as well as vegetarian, gluten-free and other dietary needs.

It's worth checking out, and we think you'll like the kids' answers to timeless questions about Jewish food.

Enjoy!
