This year, the Man-O-Manischewitz Cook-Off will be bigger-than-ever as the contestants compete by preparing their best family-friendly recipes. Five finalists will compete live in New York City, for the $25,000 Grand Prize, which includes a series of Maytag appliances, cash, and a crystal trophy. Contestants will compete in front of a panel of judges led by the Celebrity Chef and food television star Claire Robinson as head judge.

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 contest is designed to showcase the benefits of using kosher products as part of the home cooking experience and to think about using kosher products in other types of cuisine, including Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Greek, or something else.
All five finalists will win an all-expense paid trip to NYC to compete live on March 28 at The JCC in Manhattan in front of a live panel consisting of food media and other culinary experts. The grand prize package includes a Maytag appliance giveaway, cash and a beautiful crystal trophy! Recipes must include one of the new Manischewitz All-Natural broth flavors-Chicken, Reduced Sodium Chicken, Beef and Vegetable-and may contain other Manischewitz products as well.
This year’s Cook-Off will support rock CAN roll, a non-profit, hunger relief organization that collaborates with rock concerts, schools, corporations, and individuals to collect healthy and nutritious non-perishable food for distribution to local emergency food agencies and into the hands of children, seniors and families who live with hunger and in poverty. rock CAN roll is built on four basic principles: Healthy Nutritious Dignity & Respect. Bins made to look like Manischewitz broth cans will be set up in major cities during a portion of the contest period so that consumers can make non-perishable food donations in support of rock CAN roll. In support of this effort, Manischewitz will match all donations. www.rockCANroll.org
Additionally, the cook-off raises awareness regarding Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM), a national month of recognition of the more than 350-year history of Jewish contributions to American culture. The Manischewitz Company, the founding sponsor of JAHM, will work with the JAHM steering committee to drive awareness of events and programs. Updates on JAHM are available on www.jahm.us and will continue through the end of JAHM on May 31.
