Hey, remember a few days ago when we told you about Bubby’s Cook Off--the cooking contest meant to showcase modern Jewish cuisine in Philly? Yeah, well that’s coming right up (like, tomorrow), and yesterday, semi-professional picture-taker and friend of Foobooz Yoni Nimrod, just happened to be out at Citron & Rose where he was able to catch chef Yehuda Sichel and his crew in the throes of their Bubby’s prep work.
Check out a couple of the snaps after the jump. And if you’re into it, maybe stop by Bubby’s tomorrow to watch Sichel, Jean-Marie Lacroix, Guillermo Pernot, Mike Deganis and Shane Cash go mano a mano in a cooking competition that will decide who does the best (modern) Jewish food in town.

Okay, so we already told you about the Sabatino/Puchowitz/Moore wine dinner happening on the 17th. Then there was the “La Cottora” dinner happening at Le Virtu which brings together George Sabatino (again), Joe Cicala and Scott Schroeder for one big outdoor Abruzze-style winter festival on the 20th. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the first of the four-chef, four-meal collaboration dinners from Jon Cichon, Lee Styer, Nick Elmi and Chris Kearse happening at Will on the 13th.
But for those of you who are still looking for something more, how about this? On January 23, 5 more of the city’s big names will be coming together for a cooking competition called “Bubby’s Cook Off” which (perhaps unsurprisingly) is set to be a showcase of modern kosher Jewish cuisine in Philly.
The chefs on board for this event are Jean-Marie Lacroix (Brûlée Catering), Guillermo Pernot, (Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar), Mike Deganis (Alla Spina), Yehuda Sichel (Citron & Rose) and Shane Cash (Rat’s Restaurant). And they’re all going to be gathering to show off their kosher chops by offering small plates for all assembled–plus a distinguished panel of judges.
Tickets for Bubby’s Cook Off are available now at $175 a head with proceeds benefiting Lubavitch of Bucks County and Friendship Circle. For more information (and tickets) check out the event website below.
