The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

How do you mark meaty and milky items in your kitchen? “My hus­band and I are well be­yond the stage of ar­gu­ing about why we do things the way we do them. Ex­cept for one lit­tle thing: the colour of milchig [milky] and fleishig [meaty] items in our house. When I went shop­ping as a bride, the colours I liked were the colours that I chose for my kitchen. En­ter mar­riage. It still puz­zles my hus­band why in our house, red is for milchig and blue is for fleishig. As he has put it, ‘ev­ery­one’ knows that red is the colour of meat and that milk is blue. This last part has al­ways stumped me. Were a stu­dent to write on a pa­per that milk is blue I, as the teacher, would have to won­der about said stu­dent’s vis­ual acu­ity.” con­ver­sa­tion­sin­klal.
