By Jonathan Farrell     Jul 11, 2013 in Food
San Francisco - Chef Ramni Levy is pleased to have found a new kitchen to work in for his knish creations. La Victoria Bakery, in the City's Mission District has graciously provided space to the 'King knish' for his growing
culinary enterprise. "He is using La Victoria's commercial kitchen for production and as a location for order pick-ups," said Levy's marketing and media coordinator Beverly Picardo. Levy moved in and got to work this past June 3. "He'll be sharing the space with other bakers, for the time being," she said.
Yet the gracious opportunity of kitchen space arrived not a moment too soon, because right from the get go, Levy and his crew have been busy fulfilling orders. All summer long so far, Levy has been busy attending festivals and coordinating catering events all in the goal of promoting his knish creations. Never one to miss an opportunity, Levy was pleased to offer customers at Optical Underground at Union Square on June 6 a sample of his knish expertise.
Since making the decision to follow an old-world dish "with a new twist" Levy has been developing new recipes for the simple snack food. Basically made from potatoes and flour, Levy has wasted no time in dazzling food lovers with this well-known old-style East Coast favorite.

Levy sees the knish has having a lot of culinary potential, taking it to new levels of taste-bud excitement. He has taken the traditional, basic and turned it into a bit of the exotic, using ingredients unheard of for a knish. Tantalizing flavors like Wasabe and Miso, sweet potato and marshmallow or even a bit of chocolate for one recipe, Levy is not afraid to be bold. The response has been positive. And, now Levy and Picardo are doing everything they can to keep up with the pace. In addition to going to local fairs, festivals and malls, Levy and his knishes have appeared on local television.
This July 27 Levy will be offering his knishes and other specialities at The J-Pop Summit Festival in Japantown and from there it will be off to the Monterey Jazz Festival in September.
