'Simply Manischewitz' live cook-off at the Hilton San Francisco Financial District (750 Kearny Street) on December 20 will feature the winning recipes of the 10 semi-finalists chosen from the SF Bay Area.
While Mayor Gavin Newsom is proclaiming Dec. 20 as "Simply Manischewitz Cook-Off Day," the event offers a free admission and a complimentary lunch for all who attend.
The cook-off competition will take place between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and will highlight the simplicity and uniqueness of Jewish holiday cooking. Free samples of Manischewitz products will be also passed around.
This national cook-off tour comes to SF after visiting Chicago and Philadelphia. Two semi-finalists from the SF competition will be chosen as finalists to compete in the final competition in New York on February 7, 2008 for the chance to win a $25,000 grand prize, including a GE Profile kitchen.
"San Francisco is a dynamic and captivating city, and home to some of the greatest restaurants in the country, making it the perfect place to host the second annual 2007 Simply Manischewitz Cook-Off," said David Rossi, VP of Marketing for the R.A.B. Food Group. Yeah, you can say that again, mister!
