New Jersey man wins $25,000 in Manschewitz cooking contest
Stuart Davis of Cherry Hill, N.J. won the $25,000 grand prize in this year’s Man-O-Manischewitz Cook-Off.
The annual kosher cooking contest, which took place Thursday, is sponsored by Manischewitz, the nation’s largest maker of processed kosher food products, including the eponymous matzah.
The contest , which draws thousands of entries from across the United States, requires contestants to submit recipes featuring at least two Manischewitz products, and no more than nine ingredients total. This year, one of the ingredients had to be Manischewitz Ready to Serve Broth.
Davis was one of five finalists showing off their stuff in Manhattan for a panel of judges including celebrity chef Jacques Pepin. Davis’ winning recipe? Chicken and egg Donburi, on a mound of rice.
