Bergen, Your Mother Wants You To Eat: Hire This Kosher Food Truck

BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- There are food trucks and then there's the kosher food truck.

Somewhere, your mom (or grandmother) is kvelling.

The Chosen Cholent specializes in pulled smoked brisket, smoked fried chicken, smoked short ribs, and of course, cholent (a traditional Shabbat stew).

Rabbi Adam Gindea, the owner/pitmaster of the New Jersey-based truck, operates under the Vaad Harabonim of Metro West and has a Mashgiach (rabbinic supervision) with him at all events.

He said he's the only kosher meat food truck in New Jersey, and one of only a handful in the country. It's a fairly new business --  he's been doing this since September 2016 while teaching full time as a Judaic studies teacher at Golda Och Academy in West Orange.

Due to his commitments teaching, he mostly does fairs, festivals, and private events. And while he's happy to find a "set spot" to operate out of, he's perfectly happy being hired by Shuls, JCC's or any other type of organization interested in setting up a regular food truck appearance.
