Recipe for success

Edinburgh J-Soc won the first Union of Jewish Students Great Jewish Cookoff.

The competition featured 11 teams which competed in regional heats for a place in the grand final. The dishes were judged by Masterchef 2015 finalist Emma Spitzer and Rachel Davies, of Rachel's Kitchen. Competitors made a mix of traditional Jewish dishes, Israeli food and more.

They were also challenged by innovation rounds, where they were given random ingredients without a recipe and had to prepare something unique.

The winners will enjoy a private masterclass with Rachel. Entry fees were donated to the Trussell Trust, which runs 400 food banks across the UK. Emma and Rachel are pictured with the winning team.
