Okay - while I know a little about keeping kosher and grew up with a few friends who kept a kosher kitchen, I have never cooked kosher. I'm not trying to cook kosher, so everyone can relax . . .
I was watching some new show on Bravo as I was falling asleep last night (Chef Roble - catering something) and he was preparing a kosher meal for an event. He was in a kosher kitchen and went to turn on the stove and the Rabbi came running over saying that he had to turn on the flame. I never knew that or had never heard that part of a kosher kitchen (not surprising, just saying).
So my question is - for people who keep a kosher kitchen at home, how do you turn on the stove at home if the rabbi is supposed to turn on the flame?
