If kosher food happens to sit in the presence of nonkosher food and thereby acquires some of its flavor, is it still kosher? (In general, it is not possible to completely shield food from surrounding smells and aromas.)

    What do you mean? Hot vapors from non kosher food together with kosher food in the same oven? That would not be kosher indeed. You should clarify what you mean by “sit”. Contact or not? Hot or cold? – mbloch Nov 5 '19 at 19:22

  • No contact. Just aromas in the air. – Maurice Mizrahi Nov 5 '19 at 19:44

    The halacha is that taam k'ikar - if a food's taste is discernibly improved by nonkosher, the food is also nonkosher. – Loewian Nov 6 '19 at 3:05

    @Loewian the halakha is also that reicha lav milta - if just the smell transferred, then it is still kosher. Which case is this? – Double AA Nov 6 '19 at 12:23
