Why My Husband Should Enter The 7th Annual Man-O-Manischewitz Cook-Off

He has nothing to lose but everything to gain! Have you seen the Grand Prizes? What’s a wife not to like; $25,000 Grand Price Package Including Maytag Appliances! Not to mention cash, and expense paid trip and a beautiful crystal trophy! I know he can do this!

The official opening of this contest was last Monday and entries will be accepted up until February 4, 2012. We won’t even need to make travel arrangements to get to the cook-off; this year, the contest will be held at the Manischewitz® Manufacturing Plant and Headquarters in Newark, NJ!

I love that this Cook-Off encourages at-home chefs (like my dear husband) to experiment with kosher products while preparing delicious recipes. Have I mentioned how happy I am that I married a man that can cook!

So, dear husband, if you are reading my blog, all you have to do is go to www.manischewitz.com, and click on the Cook-Off Banner to submit your recipe. I know you are quick in the kitchen, especially those Rosh Hashanah meals you make in minutes. Good news,  the recipe must adhere to Kosher guidelines, be prepared in under an hour, and have no more than 9 ingredients. Out of those 9 ingredients, one of them must include the Manischewitz® All-Natural broth flavors-new Turkey, Chicken, Reduced Sodium Chicken, Beef and Vegetable, plus one additional Manischewitz® product. You recipe will be judged and if you make it, four finalists will be chosen by the judging panel and five semi-finalists will be posted on http://www.manischewitz.com/ from February 21stth through February 28th  allowing anybody to vote online to select the five finalists.

Please save the date of March 21st 2013, you may be competing live along with four other finalists at the Manischewitz® Manufacturing Plant and Headquarters in Newark, NJ. You will be preparing your recipe in front of a live panel of judges consisting of food media and other culinary experts. Remember the grand prize package includes Maytag® appliances, cash, expense paid trip and a beautiful crystal trophy.

If you win, you will be in great company. Over the years, more than 10,000 people nationwide, of all ages and all walks of life, have entered the competition. Past winners include: Eric Silberman, from Lincolnwood, IL with hisMod Matzo Ball Soup;Stuart Davis, from Cherry Hill, NJ with his Chicken and Egg Donburi; Sarah Freedman-Izquierdo of Miami Beach, Florida with her Mandarin Dumpling Soup; Amy Siegel from Clifton, NJ with her Marvelous Mediterranean Falafel Sliders; Joy Devor of Rockaway, NY with her Fantastic Flounder Rolls and Candace McMenamin from Lexington, SC with her Sweet Potato Encrusted Chicken.

You know how much I love Jewish History and Jewish Geography? 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 is the founding sponsor of JAHM, and works 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, 2013.

Honey, it is time to get inspired! I know you can create an original recipe using any of the new Manischewitz broths, check them out at http://www.manischewitz.com/.
