Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, 1300 Nicollet Mall, one of the largest hotel properties in the Twin Cities, now is offering a welcoming venue to the Jewish community with its new Kosher Kitchen. With a separate on-site banquet kitchen and full kosher menu, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis can further accommodate guests’ travel needs, as well as cater kosher events including Jewish weddings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
Hyatt Regency Minneapolis’ Kosher Kitchen is led by Executive Chef Aaron Hagerdorn, who upholds Orthodox standards of tradition and commitment when developing kosher cuisine. This special menu offers a wide variety of dishes, including a Mediterranean station complete with assorted olives, flat breads, and house made hummus, and classic desserts like babkas and rugelechs. The hotel’s extensive kosher menu is available upon prior request for groups or individual guests. Custom menus are also available upon request.
Preparing kosher food requires a great deal of precision, as it must adhere to strict religious standards. According to Orthodox law, kosher meals cannot be prepared with the same dishes, utensils or ingredients that were previously used to make non-kosher food. The Hyatt Regency Minneapolis has designated a separate room near the new North Star Ballroom with its own equipment for this purpose. The kosher kitchen contains all stainless-steel appliances, and houses two sets of small kitchen equipment and utensils such as blenders, food processers, pots and pans. This allows the hotel to accommodate both meat and dairy kosher meals. All equipment and the kitchen itself were blessed by Rabbi Shimon Perez of the Kehila Kashruth of Minnesota.
