Shavuot cheesecake competition winners announced


Yara and other junior entrants

Yara Nuuman (junior) and Catriona Munster (senior) have been chosen as the winners of York Liberal Jewish Community’s first Shavuot cheesecake competition judged by BBC Radio York’s Jonathan Cowap.

Jonathan tasted every one of the 13 adult entries, but was spared needing to taste the junior entries which were individually decorated but used the same core ingredients.  Declaring Catriona the adult winner for her vegan cheesecake, Jonathan said:

“It wasn’t the prettiest or the most sophisticated but it was very interesting and more importantly it tasted really good!”

The event was held at the home of Ben and Rachael and also included a short service led by student Student Rabbi Deborah Blausten with almost forty members attending.
