I feel I now have a second home in Skokie, Illinois. When I went to do an event there for the Skokie Kollel, last Monday, I was given the warmest welcome I’ve ever had. The women of the entire community packed into the beautiful kollel building. I totally enjoyed working with the rabbis who run the kollel as well as Tami & Barbra, the pair that chaired the event. They were fantastic and we have become fast friends. My assistants for food prep were Sharon Matten (a culinary celeb in her own right), Debbie and Rebbetzin Rosenberg. We worked so well together! All150 women who attended enjoyed a superb tasting, if I do say so myself and couldn’t stop thanking me. I was blown away by their intense appreciation. I’ve been in a lot of places, folks, but I have never experienced anything like this. Listen, when your day starts at 3:30 am to catch a flight, and you spend the whole day cooking, preparing and doing a program until 10:30 pm, you really relish a word of thanks.

So you want to know what I served that evoked such praise? You can check out the entire menu here, but one of the stars was one of my favorite recipes from my new book, Quick & Kosher Meals in Minutes– Asian Chicken Salad — which was developed around a bottled dressing that I particularly like. That’s a huge stretch for me because I don’t go for most bottled dressings. But Asian Carrot Ginger from Wafu is different.

On Thursday April 7th 2011 Yeshiva University held its annual Cholent Cook Off where groups of students congregated to demonstrate their cholent-making prowess. Previously, on Wednesday April 6th, they had all convened in Belfer Hall to assemble their cholents, as these dishes need plenty of time to cook.

Walking into the building on Thursday afternoon the cholent aroma was almost overwhelming. But Jamie Geller, along with the other judges, came prepared to taste SIXTEEN different cholents. The teams had named themselves with much ingenuity – “the Maccabeans”, “the Cholent Pot Heads” and “The Golden Ladles” to name but a few.

Davis received a grand prize worth $25,000 which includes: state of the art kitchen appliances, cash, over night stay in NYC, crystal trophy, and Manischewitz product.

Stuart was selected as a finalist through the “Online Voting” component that allowed consumers to have a say in the finalist selection process. The other four contestants were selected from thousands of entries.

The event is sponsored by YU’s Office of University Housing.

In keeping with the tradition of slow-cooking the stew dish, 16 teams of four students will prepare their dishes the night before. The next afternoon, a panel of discriminating palates will crown the winner.

On Sunday January 23rd the Talmudical Academy held its bi-annual tea in Baltimore. Our very own Jamie Geller was invited to speak and to give a cooking demonstration. She spoke beautifully and had the audience laughing really hard – and she made cooking look so easy – quick and kosher, for sure!!

Talmudical Academy Tea
Over five hundred women turned out for this event, that was spectacularly organized and beautifully presented by Nusy Lefkowitz and Chumi Spero – a dynamic mother-daughter duo. Jamie and I were blown away by the wonderful hospitality shown to us by the women of the Baltimore community. Such lovely generous ladies.
