News Brief

Foreign and domestic chefs will cook kosher meals in the Olympic Village in Beijing.

Restaurants in the village will provide for dietary needs, including kashrut, said Deng Yaping, a spokeswoman for the village, which opened Sunday. “With the efforts of 100 foreigners and more than 2,300 chefs throughout China, the restaurants will offer Western and Asian cuisines on a 24-hour basis, including Jewish meals, Muslim meals, Indian meals and so on with a clear sign on the menu for the villagers,” Deng said at a news conference in Beijing. The international companies hired by the Beijing Olympic Committee together have catered at eight Summer Games and five Winter Games.
