Shabbat Top Chef

Welcome to the Shabbat Edition of Top Chef, the most epic Jewish culinary event of the year! Teens meet on Friday morning for the cook off, while families and friends are invited for the dinner to come taste the food and vote on the winning team!!

The cook-off takes place at Congregation Ahavath Achim, 3225 SW Barbur Blvd Portland, OR 97239.
The dinner in the evening is at the MJCC, 6651 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219.

Here is how it works:   Teams are made up of 5 students. Each team will propose a menu, based on a set of rules and guidelines. All recipes need to be submitted for approval by our staff. Once the menu is approved, we will do all of the shopping and have everything you need waiting for you (including a print out of all of your recipes) to begin cooking on Friday morning. No outside ingredients are allowed! At the end of the day, everything will be packaged up and transferred (by us) to the MJCC for the dinner. For more details and information, please email

Cost: $50 teen registration

$25 for dinner guests, $60 family maximum, $180 Event Sponsor
