I want to start by thanking the Temple of Israel, Karen Akerhielm, Lisa Korallis, Lori Blackman, and Roger Thompson for entrusting the brisket and kugel process to me and the countless hours they’ve put in to make this event happen. The community at large as shown me great kindness and welcomed me with open arms, and for that I have to thank Pat Cohen and Rabbi Sam Rose. I’m incredibly proud to represent the temple and the Jewish people through the best way I know how, food. 

 

The experience this past weekend was incredible. A small army of volunteers and hundreds and hundreds of visitors made for a very successful festival. I want to thank each and every person that showed up to support a community in desperate need of it. It was both a professionally and spiritually rewarding experience, and one I'll remember the rest of my life. In the coming weeks and months, the concept of Kosher South will much more known and talked about. I'm incredibly excited to share my vision of southern Jewish food with the world. Keep a look out for Pop-Ups and other events. I'm coming.

 

Thank You all for the love and support,

Chef Joe Wilson

When I was asked by Rabbi Rose to do the Second Night Seder dinner, I was initially both honored and a little scared. I know it will be the most important dinner of my life thus far. Not because of some enormous turnout or important food critic in attendance (I’ve never cared about that stuff anyway) but because it will be the first time I present the concept of Kosher South to a live audience. Not with my voice in some emotionally moving speech, but the most important way I know how, my food. 

 

Kosher South is meant to pay homage to those that came before. Both from the old country in the way of holocaust survivors, refugees, and countless transatlantic voyages into the unknown and to West Africans who were brought here with their skills by force. Each of these legacies stand at the center of what Kosher South is. Both steeped in tragedy, enslavement, and tradition, both proud and iconic. 

 

It’s my believe that the struggle shared in these traditions show in the heart, soul, and symbolism of the foods they consumed. It’s my hope I can cross over the thresholds of these cuisines and cultures and bring them together into what Michael Twitty might call the Kosher Soul. (A great book). I call it Kosher South, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. Stay tuned for the complete Seder menu, it’s symbolism, its and story in the days to come.
