What fun for the 75 people who attended this event on February 17!  And what a rush to watch Rae Ann Brechner, Ellen Dragushan, Allan Mandell, and Aharon Ittah as they chopped, fried, cooked and served such delicious food.
Before a sold-out crowd, teams from Congregation Emanu-El and the London Chef prepared the meal.  

As they cooked, Solomon Siegel served up One-Jew Punch, created specially for the occasion (key ingredient – Manischewitz, of course).

From appetizers to the delicious rugelach made by Ellen Dragushan, the tasting opportunities kept coming.
With cheers and applause for both teams, the Emanu-El team was declared the winner by Rabbi Harry, the evening’s MC. Amid hoots of laughter, he reminded the crowd that they were “somewhat biased”.  
And the guests?  We all felt like winners!
