Scheck Hillel Community School recently held its third family cooking session, which included 13 teams of four competing for the title of Scheck Hillel’s Next Top Chefs. The cooking sessions take place around each Jewish holiday to teach students the importance of certain ingredients.
Each team received a basket with four secret ingredients of popcorn, pasta, milk and strawberries along with salt, pepper, sugar, eggs and flour. Milk was chosen to represent Shavuot, a Jewish holiday that involves eating dairy products and begins June 3.
The winners were Arik Aligen, Alex Wagenberg, Elliot Shiro and Cesar Ades for their Alfredo pasta and popcorn with strawberry dipping sauce. Each received a certificate for Fuego by Mana restaurant and the Kosher by Design cookbooks.
