Food


From farmers’ markets to restaurants, Portland has become a culinary destination. The state’s kosher options have expanded too.

The rules regarding what foods are proper to eat originate in the Bible. The Israelites were given a long list of forbidden foods, including animals that didn’t both chew their cud and have split hooves, rodents, birds of prey, shellfish and fish without fins and scales. Exodus added the restriction: “You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.”

The evolution of Jewish dietary laws evolved from there as Talmudic rabbis strove to ensure the mandate was upheld giving rise to the separation of milk and meat. Jewish concerns extend to how food is slaughtered, prepared and served. For an animal to be kosher, or fit for consumption, it must be killed in a prescribed way – the swiftest, most painless and humane death for an animal.

Although kosher laws have their origin in the Bible, with modern food production concerns, kosher is considered the gold standard by many consumers looking to verify the safety and purity of the food they eat.

Our food pages include both kosher and non-kosher listings.
