Off the Menu: Is it kosher? 

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food

"There's no principle that says that something that comes out of meat is meat."

— The Orthodox Union's Kosher Division leader Rabbi Menachem Genack quoted in a Slate story on the debate about how to view the "test-tube burger" (aka Frankenburger), a lab-grown patty derived from the stem cells of a cow, thus requiring no killing of animals. Food writers declared it a worthy burger at a taste test in London last year.
