FOR only the second time in Australia a kosher eatery will serve both milk and meat meals at the same time on one premises.
Millee’s Deli, which will open in Rose Bay next week, will serve milk-only breakfasts until 11.30am and then both meat and milk meals for the rest of the day.
Owner Dena Miller told The AJN that meat and milk diners will be separated by a division which has been approved by the Kashrut Authority, and there will be two separate entrances to the shop.
This isn’t the first foray into the food business for Miller or Millee’s employee Minette Lee-Warden.
The pair started Kosherlicious, which is a kosher catering company, and The Cooksisters, which is a non-kosher catering company.
“The inspiration was to take the business to the next level and offer the broader Jewish community the opportunity to enjoy what we have to offer on a daily basis,” Miller told The AJN this week.
She said it has always been a dream to run a cafe-style business.
“We began as an informal set-up, and through the support of the community and strong demand we have gradually become a thriving business,” Miller said.
“The opportunity arose to make use of the Mizrachi kitchen facilities and this allowed Kosherlicious to serve the community and their full range of kosher function catering needs.
“We look forward to enjoying your company and exciting your taste buds.”
Millee’s Deli opens on June 1.
The only other time a kosher eatery served both milk and meat was under the auspices of Rabbi Meir Rabi and It’s Kosher, a kashrut authority that is not recognised by the mainstream kashrut authorities in Australia.
