This past Sunday, February 3rd marked the 47th Super Bowl. Although the game is tied to a lot of traditions such as BBQing and tailgating, the festivities typically do not have much Jewish flare. That is, until now. American Jews who love football are stepping up, turning out kosher foods designed for game-day eating.
Two of New Orleans’s biggest kosher restaurants, Kosher Cajun and Casablanca, both rolled out special Super Bowl menus packed with kosher variations on some of the most popular Super Bowl delicacies. For many Jewish football fanatics, these developments have been a long time coming. And what about people who were lucky enough to be attending the game? They got to eat at the new kosher cart in the New Orleans Superdome. The cart served up thousands of kosher game day favorites like hot dogs and even Jewish foods like knishes.
There is a certain amount of Jewish comedy in how American Jews modified the Super Bowl and made it a more Jewish-friendly event. There are tens of thousands of Jewish football fans all over the US. For those who keep kosher, game-day hot dogs are just not going to cut it. Thankfully, now these Jewish fans have lots of delicious food options.
