Celebrity chef Jamie Geller is in the house. Geller is head judge and guest of honor for Thursday's 2013 Man-O-Manischewitz® Cook-Off Contest, with a grand prize of $25,000 for the winner.
For the first time, Manischewitz will be hosting the live Cook-Off at their headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Newark. The headquarters has been specially retrofitted for the event.
Geller, often called “Queen of Kosher," is founder of The Kosher Media Network, which publishes the Kosher cooking print magazine Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller and its companion website, JoyofKosher.com. She is a TV personality and author of two bestselling cookbooks.
Manischewitz moved its headquarters to Newark in 2011, marking the occasion by creating the world's largest matzo at nearly 25 feet long and 41.5 inches wide. It weighed 30 lbs.
