(Video) Kosherfest Social Media Dinner with Manischewitz #kfeast12

A few weeks ago, I was the guest of SweetUP and KosherEye at the second annual Kosherfest Social Media Dinner at Abigael’s on Broadway where I was treated to exceptional food and excellent company as I smoozed with some of the nation’s top Kosher influencers.

Check out my video recap.

A sold out event where I met authors, chefs and esteemed movers and shakers of the blogging world as we enjoyed delicious food and got to know some fantastic kosher brands like Jelly Belly (who knew right?), Foodman’s Matzolah, Fruit of the Land, Royal Wine Corporation, Walker’s Shortbread and Manischewitz.

I may not be Jewish but I grew up in a town with a large Jewish population so I definitely appreciate the culture, food and strength of the Jewish people and with Chanukah just around the corner had to share this to-die-for smoked brisket eggroll from Jeff and Alison Nathan http://www.koshereye.com/appetizers/2183-smoked-brisket-eggroll.html.

And some exciting contests from the night’s premier sponsor Manischewitz where you can win some fantastic products.


Just in time for the holidays, here is a chance for your readers to have some fun and win with the Chanukah House Contest! New from Manischewitz is the Chanukah House Kit, which comes with everything needed to build a great and tasty Chanukah house including cookies, icing, and decorating accents.  It’s simple to enter; participants submit a photo of their completed Chanukah House to the Manischewitz Facebook for a chance to win prizes of money or Manischewitz products.

That night along with the fantastic food and company over $250 was donated to Masbia, a NY area kosher food kitchen, all thanks to the generosity of event sponsors and partners.

Thank you so much SweetUP and KosherEye for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing evening.

Disclosure: I attended this SweetUP and KosherEye sponsored event and received a goody bag but as always my post is my unbiased opinions.
