The Manischewitz Experience – 3 Day Pop Up at Chelsea Market


Manischewitz just had a three day Pop Up at Manhattan’s Chelsea Market. It opened to the public this past Thursday and continued through Friday and yesterday (Sunday). Though I wanted very much to see and taste Jamie Geller‘s demos, work did not allow it, but I managed to make it there yesterday.

I arrived just in time for Chef Katsuji Watanabe‘s cooking demo. Chef Watanabe not only is superb at what he does, but also has a winning personality!

With humor, and lots of patience, the Chef proved himself quite a showman

  1. In heavy pot add all vegetables. Add the garlic and sauté for three minutes. Add the soy sauce, Mirin, sake, and Manischewitz® Vegetable Broth and cook to reduce.

  3. Serve over steamed noodles and garnish with shizito peppers.

The pop up was divided into several serving stations, my favorites were Manni’s Pizzeria where just like Elizabeth Bland (The Cheese Mistress) I thought – as did Meyer Harroch, as well – that the matzoh pizza was surprisingly good.

Also the soup with crackers was nice, hot and delicious, the potato latkes were extremely tasty (in spite of being made from a mix in a box!).

All in all, I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours enjoying the serving stations, the demos and meeting old friends.

    I really enjoyed Chef Katsuji Watanabe’s demo, too. I was a little disappointed, however, that the squiggly yellowish stuff in that clear box was noodles instead of shredded cheese! I am very interested in Mexican kosher. Here’s his restaurant out in L.A. Fleishig, but you can’t win ’em all! I eat a lot of kosher milchig Mexican that I just throw together. http://www.mexikosher.com
