Kosher Chopped

Naomi Nachman is the reigning maven of Kosher Chopped competitions. She has hosted hundreds of these cooking competitions, providing interactive entertainment for schools, camps, private clients, and corporations including YU Connects, Kushner Day School, Moriah, and HANC.

What is Kosher Chopped?

Building on the theme of the well-known Chopped series on the Food Network, Naomi brings this experience to your organization or event. Naomi takes care of everything from soup to nuts, and she personally runs and organizes everything. She helps you prepare your space for the event, provides the ingredients, and makes sure the event runs smoothly.

Kosher Chopped competitions bring people together. These team building experiences are designed for groups of 5–60 people and to include everyone in the fun.

Each person plays a part in the competition, and each event is customized based on the client’s goals.

How it Works

Naomi will identify the judges in advance and upon arrival of the event, the teams will be organized. These teams will be presented with a basket of ingredients and another smaller selection of ingredients called pantry items, which all the teams can use.

Each team will have 30 minutes to create a dish using the ingredients. Once the 30 minutes are up, the teams will present their culinary creations to a panel of judges. These judges will taste each the prepared dish and consult amongst themselves to determine the winning recipe. They will be judged on taste, creativity and presentation.

Once the winner is selected, that team will receive recognition (and prizes, if desired) in front of the entire group.

The Kosher Chopped Competition is a great exercise in team building, creativity, and celebration, with just the right amount of competitiveness and camaraderie. All ingredients, utensils, and cooking tools are kosher certified.
