Kosherfest 2014 Wrap-Up

Many thanks to our current students, staff and all the alumni and chefs who came to visit us at Kosherfest this year!

The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts was proud to exhibit at Kosherfest for the sixth consecutive year. Our current students had a blast, and we were excited to see many of our alumni attend the show.

One of the highlights of the event was the Kosherfest Culinary Competition, produced by CKCA for the fourth consecutive year. All the dishes were delicious and visually magnificent, but the top prize went to Chef Tanajbe of Mexikosher.

We want to thank our co-sponsor Jack's Gourmet, our host Paula Shoyer (The Holiday Kosher Baker) and our judges, Chef Philippe KaemmerlĂ© (The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts); Jack Silberstein (Jack's Gourmet); and Naomi Nachman (Host "Table for Two" Nachum Segal Network). 
Chef Itta Werdiger Roth ( Mason & Mug), Chef Katsuji Tanabe ( Mexikosher) & Chef David Blum (Hartmans).

Kosherfest provides a great opportunity for our chefs, students and alumni to meet and network with leading purveyors in the kosher food industry. We are excited to be involved in an event that helps foster a kosher food community and look forward to seeing you next year at our booth!
