Is My Vegetarian Kitchen Kosher?


Question: My husband and I maintain a vegetarian home for ethical reasons. Our kitchen, appliances and utensils have never come in contact with meat, chicken or fish. However, we are not very observant, and I would never claim that we keep kosher. My question is, do we keep a kosher home from the perspective of guests? We are becoming more and more involved with our local Orthodox synagogue and are beginning to have friends who are Orthodox in our home. Can we serve them directly from our kitchen, or, because the emphasis on kashrut is not fully there, do we need to act as I would in any other non-kosher home (take-out food, paper plates, etc?)? Response: It just so happens that just last week I koshered the home of a vegetarian family. The adjustments they had to make in their life were minimal. The koshering job was not all that complex. But yes, koshering still had to take place. And until that point, an observant Jew was not able to eat the food cooked in their ovens and utensils.
