article imageReview: Kinish was king at Jewish Food Festival in San Francisco Special

By Jonathan Farrell     Mar 19, 2013 in Food
San Francisco - Much to chef Ramni Levy's surprise all of his kinishes for the Hazon Jewish Food Festival on March 17 were sold out. "I made over 300 and I should have made more. Yet I wanted them to be perfect. And, I feared that if I made too many
I would have to suffer a loss," he said. While there were many attendees at the festival that were disappointed that Levy's kinishes sold out so quickly, Levy breathed a sigh of relief that his unique kinish creations were a smash hit at the festival. He admitted, "I was so busy, and I began to be concerned, because I really was aiming to please this crowd the most, because they know all about knishes," he said.

Chef Ramni Levy proudly presented a new chutney sauce at the Hazon Jewish Food Festival on March 17 to accompany his kinish creations. All of his kinishes at the festival were sold out before the end of the day.
The one-day festival held at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, featured over 20 different food, art and craft vendors all focused on the principles and the meaning of Jewish life and philosophy.
Metalwork artist Aimee Golant who shared her vending space next to Levy's King Kinish stand raved about his culinary creations. "I have had many a kinish over the years and Ramni's kinishes were not doughy or too dry. They had just the right consistency, very delicious," she said. Golant who like many vendors at the festival share a passion for the Jewish traditions. Based in San Francisco, Golant is a sixth-generation metal-smith, specializing in metal artworks that highlight the universal teachings within Judaism.

Fellow vendor at the festival that day was metalwork artist Aimee Golant. She said she had two of chef Ramni Levy's kinishes and enjoyed them very much. "they were not doughy or too dry, just right in consistency and delicious." She was not surprised when Levy's supply of 300 for the food festival sold out.
She mentioned that the turn out was very good for the festival and when this reporter arrived just before the festival ended at 5PM, the main hall area of the JCC had dozens and dozens of people lingering, chatting with vendors as they were slowing putting things away.
"This was really wonderful, said Yossi Offenberg, who serves as Education and Program manager at the JCC. He, Golant and others said they hope Hazon, the event's organizer will have more events in the future.
No doubt Levy will be happy to return. Even though he was sold out of kinishes, he was able to sell his chutney and compote sauces, made to accompany his selection of kinish creations. After five months of dedicated work in perfecting and promoting his kinish creations, he knows for certain there is a market for his "old world dish with a new twist."
