Our Big Kitchen, JEMS and the prestigious Sofitel Hotel Group have linked up at Sydney’s Our Big Kitchen  to cook for Rosh Hashana.

Taking notes

Using traditional Rosh Hashana ingredients the executive chefs at the Sofitel produced an impressive range of modern gourmet dishes.

Jewish families come together at Rosh Hashana for a celebratory meal using ingredients that symbol prosperity, health and long life. The traditional foods used include the head of a fish, honey and pomegranates.

Our Big Kitchen – a community kitchen, whose aim it is to bring people from all walks of life through the medium of food, launched this unique cooking and tasting class together with JEMs (Jewish Education Matters). JEMs provides Jewish education in a fun and hands on way bringing the traditions of old to the young of today.

Aside from a most enjoyable evening, the participants worked with the Sofitel chefs to prepare gourmet meals for the disadvantaged. Over
100 meals were cooked on the evening which will be distributed to those in need in time for Rosh Hashana. In addition, funds raised from the evening will provide scholarships to families in need that attend JEMs.

The Sofitel chefs were delighted to devote their time to make this special event part of their ongoing work with the community.

The evening was a shining example of business and community linking up to make this world a better place and what better time than before Rosh Hashana where we rededicate ourselves to mankind’s mission of making this world a better place.
