With the Jewish high holidays coming up in a little over a week, Uri Laio, founder of the Yahoo! group Nourishing Traditions Kosher as well as the sauerkraut company Brassica and Brine, makes a visit to The Appropriate Omnivore. Uri talks about the relationship between the Jewish Traditions and Sally Fallon’s “Nourishing Traditions”. Uri discusses how fermentation is found in many traditional Jewish foods, such as challah, wine, and pickles. Uri then goes into the difficulty of not being able to get local, kosher meat in Los Angeles and the efforts he’s been making to change things, so it can be easier for people in LA that are following a kosher diet to get pastured, nutrient dense meat and poultry. Uri also talks about his experience as a backyard beekeeper.
