"Efraim, I Need Muffins!"

Back on March 3, The Kosher Blog reported on Efraim's Muffin Club. The gist of it is that a local chef and mashgiach named Efraim Krug is baking kosher muffins every Sunday morning, and if you live within the Boston Eruv he will deliver them to your door before 8:30 AM for no extra charge. (A dozen muffins costs $18.)

So for the past two Sundays, gnomi and I have had muffins delivered to our home. We've eaten a muffin for breakfast and froze the rest to enjoy during the week. For example, today I enjoyed a muffin as a mid-morning snack, since the Copley Square swag hounds don't seem inclined to provide me with anything this week.

Nomi and I agree with Jonathan Abbett of The Kosher Blog that Efraim's muffins are delicious. This week, we are enjoying chocolate mocha, lemon poppy, coffee cake and maple bran walnut muffins. I've spoken on the phone with Efraim; from my brief interactions with him, he strikes me as a genuinely nice guy with a lot of goodness in his heart. His goal in life seems to be for people who keep kosher to enjoy eating. That's a philosophy I can endorse wholeheartedly.

So, if you want more information, click the links to check out EMK Muffin Club and EMK: Efraim's Moveable Kitchen.

This has been an unpaid endorsement.


Efraim's my next door (formerly downstairs) neighbor. I had no idea he had a baked goods business going. :-)
You know Efraim? He exists for real, in the corporeal flesh?

You should try his muffins. Delicious!
Yeah, I've met him too, he's come to tremontstshul a bunch of times over the years. And I didn't know he bakes, either. :-)
Efraim's coming to my house this week! Woo! :)
He is? Why?

(Send him my regards... *grin*)
Is "The Kosher Blog" available as a channel on LJ?
Yep. I had syndicated it once at kosher_blog, but that syndication broke. It's been resyndicated at kosher_blog
Forgive my ignorance, but what makes a muffin kosher or non-kosher?
The determination of whether or not a particular food item is kosher is very long. The short version is that it depends on the ingredients in the muffin being kosher and the baking to take place using equipment that has only been used with kosher ingredients before.

For an extended discussion of kashrut, see Judaism 101: Kashrut: Jewish Dietary Laws.
Yum yum yum!
This is awesome! Efraim is one of my favorite people!
