Do you know that Kashrut plays an essential role in Israeli cuisine and culture?

In Cooking in the Heartland book, all the recipes are 100% kosher. So, what is Kashrut? Since ancient times, Kashrut, as a set of Jewish religious dietary regulations, has strictly controlled aspects of food and its preparation.

For example, Kashrut laws say that it is prohibited for Jews to eat pork, seafood, and mixed up meat and milk simultaneously. Why? The purpose of Kashrut is to develop such habits as self-discipline and self-restraint. By controlling his food, a person learns to control his desires and passions and grows spiritually.
