DBA! Question for you!!!
My daughter is having one of her good friends over to spend the night (I've been infiltrated by teenagers this summer it seems) and she is Jewish. Her family actually just got back from Israel where they stayed and visited extended family for the entire summer. When her mom lets her stay with others for sleepovers, she requests that her daughter eat salads and veggies and not to eat anything else. I know that she says that b/c it is easier for the other parents to understand without having to go into details of foods/religion/etc, but I'm opposite - I want to know all the details of how/why/what.
What meats are off limits and what makes a Jewish teenager drool when it comes to food? You would know, right?
Maybe it is complicated for the average family here but not for me - we have a very eclectic group of international friends from Russian to Indian, French to German and when we all get together we cook for each other and have a great time trying new things and learning new culture tidbits several times a year so I get really excited about this kind of stuff.
Specifically what meats can you eat and is there anything special in the way they should be prepared? I know pork is off limits - what about chicken? I know I know - I could google it but I'd rather ask an expert!
