Danny Lee wins judges choice in Kugel Cook-Off
September 6, 2017
The event, which raised over $100,000 toward Tzedek DC’s mission, was held at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) and featured several D.C. restaurant chefs battling for the best kugel, a traditional Jewish casserole. Among those who participated in the cook-off were chefs Kyle Bailey of The Salt Line, Mike Friedman of Red Hen and All Purpose, Danny Lee of Mandu and Chiko, and Alex Levin of the Schlow Restaurant Group. Chef Pati Jinich, the host of the PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table, was originally supposed to attend but had to cancel to help a family in Mexico following the recent earthquakes.
