On Sunday February 13th, Chabad of Philadelphia held its annual women’s day in commemoration of the yahrzeit of the Lubavitcher Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson. Jamie Geller was invited back to her hometown of Philadelphia to present a cooking demonstration for over 180 community members.

The event was held at the Lubavitch Center in Philadelphia. Hosted by Rebbetzin Shemtov and organized by Sima Sherman Jamie was honored to commemorate this occasion and share her love for Judaism and cooking with the Philadelphia community.

The elaborate display of food ranged from salads and pasta to a fancy dessert buffet, including a chocolate fountain and hot Belgian-style waffles.

The highlight of the afternoon was when Jamie spoke about how she went from the Bride Who Knew Nothing to a bestselling cookbook author. Everyone laughed, learned a little and even got to see Jamie’s proud mother beam with nachas in the crowd. Jamie demonstrated some of her favorite Quick & Kosher recipes: Chilled Salmon with a Duet of Dipping Sauces, Asian Cabbage Salad with Garlic Sesame Dressing and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mousse Pie. And everyone got to enjoy a taste!

Everyone was excited to meet Jamie and have her sign copies of her latest cookbook Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes. The crowd also scrambled to join her mailing list and follow Jamie online at blog.Kosher.com. As a souvenir, attendees were able to take home a collection of free Quick & Kosher recipe cards.
