At the Bubby's Cook-Off (from left) are Lois Yampolsky, Joyce McNeill and Nadine Simantov.

They came, they cooked — they ate. That was the essence — or essen! — of the second annual Bubby’s Cook-Off presented by the Lubavitch of Bucks County at Vie.

At this local version of the kosher-cooking Oscars, there were chef tastings, a dessert face-off and samplings, and chef awards, with proceeds benefitting the Friendship Circle Foundation and Lubavitch of Bucks County.

Among the judges were chef/author Hope Cohen and broadcast icon Marciarose Shestack.

Laura Frangiosa, co-owner and proprietor of The Avenue Delicatessen, was named People’s Choice winner. Julia Deppe, executive chef, Pure Sweets & Co., took it home in the sweets department.

The event was staged in partnership with Citron and Rose and the Jewish Exponent.
