Fairway Market - Woodland Park

I just received the following from the Kof-K:

Good afternoon, regarding your question about the Fairway Bakery please be advised as follows. The Kof-K currently certifies many of the in store bakeries and all the certificates are current. The certificate is renewed quarterly.

Fairway Market - Woodland Park

I'm just guessing that the Kaf-K might not be involved in their future supervision since there seems to be no indication of their future involvement based on the above printed certificate of Kashrus as displayed in their stores.

The bagels & bread are still under the hashgacha of the Kaf K until the end of June, I believe (there is a Kaf K Kosher certificate displayed). I have a strong suspicion that Rabbi Marmorstein will be doing the future Fairway bread and bagel hashgacha without the Kaf K. The Kashruth letter next to the bagels and bread in Westbury only has his name. In addition, I've noticed that some newly displayed Kosher private label Fairway products have Rabbi Marmorstein's hechsher without the Kaf K hechsher present.

Gourmet Glatt Opening in Lakewood (NJ)

The Shoprite in Lakewood is closing after 40 years and is relocating to Howell, NJ. Gourmet Glatt of Five Towns & Brooklyn fame will probably be the new tenant in this location.

Looking for a UL Listed Shabbos Hot Plate/Warming Tray

Even if a hotplate is UL listed, is it meant to be left on (by the UL testing)at least for as many hours that people have it on for on Shabbos?

Syrian food in great neck

Great Neck does have a small Syrian community, but as DeisCane said, they don't have a Syrian restaurant. However, Shopper Delite in Great Neck does have some Sephardic takeout.

KFP Healthier Soy Sauce Substitute and KFP Coconut Flour

I contacted the Star K regarding the KFP status of coconut flour under their supervision. In their response, they mentioned that coconut aminos (a soy sauce substitute) from the same company is KFP. https://www.coconutsecret.com/aminos2...

Here is their response:

Coconut Secret brand (Leslie Organics) aminos, sap, sugar and coconut flour with plain Star-K, no P symbol required. Not coconut oil.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us again

Many thanks

Quinoa flour for Pesach?

I stand corrected. There is kosher for Passover coconut flour. I received the following email from the Star K regarding Coconut Secret brand (Leslie Organics):

Quinoa flour for Pesach?

Coconut flour is available in many stores. However, it is not available as far as I know, kosher for Passover. From my understanding, different types of flours are often processed/packed in the same facility. Therefore, it needs KFP certification.

Quinoa flour for Pesach?

I am surprised that there are not more grain free flours for Passover, such as coconut flour considering all of the paleo diet followers out there.

Quinoa!!!!!

Only the Traditional White is KFP with just the Star K.
This is from their guide.

Ancient Harvest (a/No P Required)
White Quinoa Grains Traditional

It is cheaper to buy it in Walmart compared to other stores. I have seen it being sold for over $7/box in one store. Go to their website and you can print 2 $1.00 coupons.

Kosher vegetarian Italian sausage and other deli items

Last night on Restaurant Startup on CNBC, there was a company featured called Yeah Dawg, that produces a highly rated vegan (not under Kosher supervision) hotdog. I wonder if they have been approached about becoming strictly Kosher since all of their ingredients are vegan. I mention this because most of the hotdog substitutes are not that great.

Lamb Shawarma on Long Island or in New York City?

However, I find the falafel balls at Levy's to be tastier. I agree that the pita and salad options leave much to be desired at Levy's.

If you are buying felafel in the Main Street area, Naomi Levy's Pizza has superior felafel to Grillpoint in my opinion.

need a kosher restaurant on long island not five towns for business dinner

Colbeh consistently has good food. If your client is not into Persian/Mideastern food, you might want to consider other options. Chosen in Great Neck (Chinese/sushi) is consistently good in terms of food and service. There is a new restaurant in Great Neck called Lamed Vav that has an interesting menu. I have never been there so I can't provide a fair assessment.
