A matzoh-ball eating contest, a cooking demonstration and a kosher cookoff made for a lively and humor-filled evening at the Saturday night.
Three groups, teams Chewish, Tie Dye and Chosen, competed with each other in preparing meals that were assessed by a panel of judges. Team Chewish, consisting of Kenny and Carin Meyer, Shari Klaire and Karann Pashkin, were declared winners. Teams prepared two dishes each.
Preceding that competition was a cooking demonstration by chef Shaya Klechevsky whose cheffing company, At Your Palate, is based in Brooklyn.
A matzoh-ball eating contest seemed to fill up the contestants very quickly and led to one stopping to juggle a few of them in the air before resuming.
The evening was designed as a fundraiser for the temple and a way to raise awareness about kosher cooking. And fun.
