About Me:

When I was 19 a modeling agency sent me to Milan, Italy to try to make it as a model. Then I discovered chocolate croissants and parmesan cheese. So that ended that. Now I’m a school counselor, personal chef, writer, parent, wife and food-lover.

About the Blog:

Jewhungry is an all-the-time food blog and a some-of-the-time parenting/school counseling/Jewish life blog. It is an expression of a little bit of this and a dash of that through the lens of a woman who loves food, travel, and spirituality (and who just so happened to have a kid along the way of all that exploration and learning).

Jewhungry was started because I love food and wanted to test the limits of what is thought of as traditional “kosher” food. I didn’t grow up keeping kosher and only started keeping a kosher home in 2009. Therefore, it was important for me to have a place to explore and reflect regarding this new world I was in while paying homage to my Southern, non-kosher food/family history. Thus, Jewhungry was born.

I’ve lived all over the world and my food definitely reflects my travels. My family has lived in Miami, a city rich in culture and strong flavors, since 2010, so you will see a lot of Miami influences in my dishes. In addition, I cook a lot of Paleo and vegan dishes for my personal chef-ing clients so you will see a lot of meals fitting into those food categories as well.

I hope you enjoy the recipes and stories from my shvitzin’ kitchen. If you ever want to drop a line to say “shalom”, give a recipe idea of some nice feedback, I can be emailed at jewhungry@gmail.com

Shalom y’all, Whitney

      I did it this shabbat! I didn’t have enough room in the fridge for my veggie/bean chili so I just left it covered on the counter. It was parve so no meat or dairy products at all. So far, we’re all still doing good 🙂

    First of all, I love to read everything you write, J. You. Make. Me. Laugh. Thanks for sharing this blog… somehow I’m behind. As for the cake balls, I have no doubt they are delish, but I’ve never wanted to slap your momma. Your daddy, yes, probably more than once. I got a long email from my own mom today about cake balls. She’s trying to improve her presentation. I’ll pass along any tips we learn.

    Jew funny. You know I’m allowed to say that because I’m (Jew) funny too. Thank you so much for loving my blog on the right side of your screen there! 🙂


  1. Jalapeno Black Bean Quinoa Burgers | Feeding Joshua - July 12, 2013

    […] recipe hails from Joy of Kosher, but originally from Whitney Fisch at JewHungry. They are, obviously, kosher, but that shouldn’t deter anyone from eating them. […]

  2. Almond Flour Biscuits | Feeding Joshua - September 16, 2013

    […] but as you know, I’m also dairy-free right now, and a dairy-free biscuit is an oxymoron. Meet JewHungry‘s Almond Flour […]
