Do they still have the system where each restaurant must be either meat-
free or dairy-free, because the two must not be mixed? When eating out
in Israel, it was normal to order just the main course in a dairy-free
restaurant then move next door for a creamy but vegetarian dessert.

Absolutely — that's one of the cardinal principles of kosher food. In
orthodox households, they have to have completely duplicated dishes,
utensils, cupboards, plates, etc, so that there's no possibility of mixing
meat and dairy ingredients.

Yup. The silly thing is that the meat restaurant probably offers things
like dairy-free icecream and cakes, and the vegetarian restaurant will have
pretend-meat main courses.

An observant Jewish household I know has 4 sets of crockery and cutlery to
cover all occasions during the year.

I’d noticed this phenomenon when dining out with (almost non-observant)
Jewish Israelis but I hadn’t clocked the reason. There’s clearly a
cultural hangover there. I also wondered if the lack of washing up liquid
and, indeed, washing up bowls was also some kind of cultural hangover; the
people I know always wash up under running water with thick, sticky soapy
stuff. I wondered aloud whether it was a regional thing, given that
Muslims also tend to wash in running water whenever possible, but they
hadn’t thought about it that way.

I'm fascinated by this thread, with a load of train nerds scoffing at
