From their super sweet wine to their kugel-ready egg noodles, Manischewitz is likely the most recognizable kosher food brand out there, not to mention the hipster Jew's drink of choice. As a self-respecting foodie, I would never choose their wine over a dry Cabernet from Baron Herzog (who recently went "sustainable" by the way). But I respect Manischewitz's ability to – like my aunt Minnie at the Kiddush table – elbow their way to the front of the pack.

Now Mani is giving customers a chance to share in on the glory through the Manischewitz cookoff. The company is accepting recipes that can be made in under an hour and will select 27 semi-finalists (by region). The grand prize is a brand new kitchen (maybe not so appetizing to the subletter in Brooklyn, but quite generally it's a pretty sweet payoff.)

Past finalists include: Andrea Bloom's Pea and Fennel Soup, Laura Diamond's Savory Stuffed Mushrooms, Sharon Ricci's Matzoh Brunch Bake, Michaela Rosenthal's Whitefish and Potato Knish, Rayzel Yaish's, Middle Eastern Falafel Stuffed Peppers, and Candace McMenamin's (Mc Menamin's?) Sweet Potato Encrusted Chicken. Think you can stand up to these ladies? Enter here. Just don't submit your famous bacon roulade, however – in case you were wondering, these recipes have to be kosher.
