After 2 years of virtual this is welcome news. Hopefully it stays this way. Happening, Sunday May 22nd, 2022. Mark your calendar. Proud supporter of the parade for 35 years. From marching as an elementary school student to having my own golf cart giving out magazines to having the GKRF float. Nothing like the parade. For more information, or to weigh in, click here.
 
The long time Manhattan restaurant will now be operating in a new kitchen and focusing on delivery through their bakery line. They sent out an email on Thursday stating: "With new insight into navigating the pandemic, we will be closing our doors for in-person dining and opening our hearts to new and exciting ways to bring you all of your most favorite desserts. Our bakery will continue to feature specialty cakes for any occasion, as well as the cakes, cookies, sugar cookies, brownies, pies, tarts, breads, challahs, gluten-free and vegan options that have graced your table for years." Click here to see the discussion on our Facebook group.
 
BROOKLYN
Sad news to report to start 2022. Kosher Culinary Center in Brooklyn had their final class on January 2nd, 2022. We have enjoyed following them for years. I had a great time when attending and I know that through their recreation classes and professional classes their legacy and influence will live on for decades in people's homes and in restaurants. We have seen many graduates move on to chef positions in top restaurants, as private chefs and food bloggers. We wish Chef Avram Wiseman, Co-owner Perline Dayan and their entire staff a year of new beginnings and hatzlacha. Click here to share your memories.
 
Owners of Sushi Tokyo have come out with a Kosher CBD product named Kosher CBD. They have it in gum, candy tablets and oil. What's different about these is that they have caffeine so they give you a boost and clarity as opposed to making you tired. The line is called FOCUS. Comes in flavors Raspberry Margarita, Exotic Mint, and Tropical. And it tastes good. There's also an Immunity Pack named Citrus Orange with Vitamin C and Zinc with no caffeine, so I like that, since I don't drink coffee. Get 25% off the entire purchase with coupon code: gkrkoshercbd. Free Shipping- NO MINIMUM. Click here to order. Click here for more information and to see our video.
