It’s almost March Madness and Passover time, a perfect reason to host our first Matzo Ball Soup-Off. Enter our matzo ball soup bracket competition and be voted DC Matzo Ball Soup champ in chicken, veggie, noodle, and unique categories! Not a top chef? Taste-test our competitors dishes with a side of challah and learn how to make the perfect matzo ball from Prescription Chicken’s founder Valerie Zweig.

Cheftestants - Show off your culinary skills! Create a soup dish in your own kitchen to enter into our competition, then bring your entry to our “Kitchen Stadium” for the Judges’ Panel. You can enter into one of four catergories, chicken, veggie, noodle, unique.  Dishes must be completed at home but can be warmed on our ovens, we suggest bringing a crock pot.* You may enter with a group/friends but please email us at Stacym@edcjcc.org to let us know if there is more than 1 chef attending the event so we can help you purchase the correct tickets. All cheftestants will recieve a swag bag for participating!

Be prepared to have samples available for 40-50 tasters. You can bring a big crockpot if you would like. Please bring a list of all ingredients and label your container with you name if you are not bringing something disposable - your dish must be Kosher-style or use Kosher meat.

Nosher  - Not a cook? Bring your friends to taste each dish, enjoy some beverages, snacks & challah that compliment the food, learn to make Matzo Balls from Prescription Chicken and vote for your favorite kugel.
