Winn-Dixie to Hold Kosher Cooking Demos in Advance of Holiday
Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. will help shoppers get the Jewish year 5771 off to a delicious start with cooking demonstrations and in-store sampling before Rosh Hashanah at select stores throughout South Florida.

Culinary designer and author Chef Doris is starring in the live cooking demos, which will be carried out under the kosher supervision of Star-K and ORB. Among the recipes to be prepared are gefilte fish patties in tomato sauce and Israeli couscous with mushrooms.
