Kosher Eco Hotel and Restaurant Comes to Europe

Kent UK…A new kosher restaurant will not serve meat, not because it is an exclusive dairy restaurant, but because it is Europe’s first kosher ecohotel. Writes the Guardian: “It is putting itself on the map with a mix of kibbutz-like vibe, Jewish values and environmental evangelism.” The Sadeh (field) Farmhouse is in a 17th-century manor that was transformed from a residential activity center for city schoolchildren to a rural eco retreat for families. Dormitory bedrooms have become family suites above a restaurant, music room and lounge. Beyond the house is an indoor pool, tennis courts, zipwire, children’s playground, chicken coop and vegetable garden. Although you will not find meat there, the restaurant serves many familiar Israeli and Mediterranean dishes including roasted vegetables, salads, pickles, hummus, tahini, flatbreads. Talia Chain is Sadeh’s 32-year-old chief executive.  Family rooms at Sadeh Farmhouse start at £80 a night,
