I am so excited to announce today that I will be the head judge and guest of honor for the 2013 Man-O-Manischewitz® Cook-Off Contest, the seventh year of this now iconic national competition.

The entry period for this competition is going on right now. The competition encourages at-home chefs to experiment with kosher products while preparing delicious recipes that could be a new family favorite or one that has been shared from generation to generation. The deadline for entries is February 4, 2013.  Recipes must include one of the Manischewitz All-Natural broth flavors-NEW Turkey, Chicken, Reduced Sodium Chicken, Beef or Vegetable, as well as one other Manischewitz products as well, with no more than 9 ingredients.

Four finalists will be chosen by the judging panel and five other semi-finalists will be posted on www.manischewitz.com to select the fifth finalist. From February 21st through February 28th, consumers can vote online, and via Facebook and Twitter, to select the fifth finalist.

These five finalists will compete at the Manischewitz Headquarters and Production Plant in Newark, NJ on Thursday March 21, 2013, for the $25,000 Grand Prize, which includes a series of Maytag® appliances, cash and a beautiful crystal trophy. As long time fan of Manischewitz products, I am especially excited to be able to take part in this year’s Cook-Off contest. I wish the contestants great luck and I cannot wait to meet the five finalists at the event.  It is a pleasure to be able to work with a family-friendly brand as my goal is to help families prepare delicious, quick meals; the Manischewitz line of broths are a staple in so many of my recipes.
