Jewish Cookbook Project Wins National Prize
A cookbook that started as a pay-it-forward project has won first place — and a $5,000 prize — in a national contest for one local Jewish women’s group.
“Try It, You’ll Like It” is a cookbook by the Jewish Women’s Initiative (JWI), a division of Aish Los Angeles, featuring more than 400 traditional and modern kosher Jewish recipes. Last month, it won the annual Morris Press Community Cookbooks contest, the biggest cookbook competition in the United States. It was chosen out of 251 entrants for the top prize.
