Meat and milk are never combined. Separate utensils are used for each, and a
waiting period is observed between eating them.
Kosher foods are thus divided into three categories:
Meat includes the meat or bones of mammals and fowl, soups or gravies made with them, and any food containing even a small quantity of the above.
Dairy includes the milk of any kosher animal, all
milk products made with it (cream, butter, cheese, etc.), and any food containing even a small quantity of the above.
Pareve foods are neither "meat" nor "dairy." Eggs are pareve, as are all fruits, vegetables and grains. Pareve foods can be
mixed with and eaten together with either meat or dairy.
