Kvod hadayanim,shlita is it mutar to take a non jewish cooking course tasting and chewing the food but spitting it out & not swallowing? Rav todos for an urgent reply.


It is not permitted to taste foods that may not be eaten, including foods that come under the category of bishul akum (Rivash 288; Taz 98:2; Peri Megadim 98 writes tzarich iyin).

However, one can rely on the heter of adding a keisam (slightly raising the fire) to permit the food.

For further details please see https://dinonline.org/2011/08/01/whos-doing-the-cooking/.

Good luck and best wishes.
