“There are literally thousands of media properties dedicated to food, yet the kosher-minded consumer is constantly swapping ingredients and eliminating interesting recipes that don’t take into account the kosher lifestyle,” said Jamie Geller. “I have long hoped for a modern, clean and fresh magazine with mouthwatering and easy recipes, relevant articles about everything from cookware to kitchen design, all with the kosher market in mind. I absolutely love the fact that the magazine, site and social media properties allow me to connect with people in a regular and immediate way, sharing and receiving feedback, recipes and more. We hope the magazine and corresponding website will be bookmarked virtually and in reality in homes across the country.”
The Kosher Media Network is the first multi-platform network for the kosher market, combining traditional media (magazines, books, broadcast) with the latest in digital, social and online tools for an integrated platform reflecting the way today’s consumers communicate and live.
"You don't have to be Kosher to love Kosher" added Geller, explaining that the magazine will be written to appeal to both Kosher and mainstream consumers, with discussions underway with mainstream media distributors to carry the new magazine.
Geller, best-selling author and popular media personality often referred to as the “kosher Rachael Ray” is serving as Editor in Chief on the magazine. Geller tapped a talented and experienced staff to help bring Joy of Kosher to life. With the backing of the Kosher Media Network, of which Geller is a co-founder, the magazine will be distributed monthly through bookstores, supermarkets and subscription. The magazine will feature exclusive interviews, tips and tricks from leading chefs and food personalities. It will also offer lifestyle content from kitchen design to kitchen etiquette, place settings, cookware recommendations and hot new product information. JoyofKosher.com, was designed as a social recipe-sharing hot spot, and will offer thousands of regularly added recipes supported by a recipe sharing community, social networking on the site and a passionate Facebook and Twitter foodie community. Members can search, share, upload and save their favorite recipes plus discover Shabbat and holiday menu ideas with other kosher food lovers. Members can make new friends, upload photos, download deals, enter contests and win weekly prizes as well as communicate with each other via interactive message boards. New members can register in just a couple of minutes, and the site is totally free.
“JoyofKosher.com is the first online community of its kind,” Geller explains, “Members will be able to search and share thousands of kosher recipes with one another. For generations, Jewish women have handed down recipes and shared them via word of mouth or jotting them down on papers and index cards that yellowed and frayed over time. Our new online community bridges an age-old tradition with technology so we can keep all those recipes - traditional and modern - in one place and continue sharing them with one another.”
