Two Years Ago I Had The Pleasure Of Judging The Chop Hunger Cooking Competition, An Annual Event That Raises Money For The Masbia Soup Kitchen Network. The Culinary Contest Is Great Fun, Complete With Celebrity Chefs And Mystery Ingredients A La The Food Network’s Popular Cooking Show “Chopped.”
The competition is taking place once again, on Tuesday, September 12, at the Lincoln Square Synagogue — and tickets are still available.
I’m not judging Chop Hunger this year, but “Chopped” winner Katsuji Tanabe, of Mexikosher, is, along with two other chefs: Alex Reznik of Bedford Kitchen & Wine Bar and Joshua Massin of Nobo Wine and Grill.
Masbia is an organization that feeds New York’s needy out of three locations in Brooklyn and Queens, each decorated and arranged to look and feel like a restaurant — a way of offering a dignified dining experience.
