Meet Margalit

Update! Margalit is headed to New York City. She is a Finalist in the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest. A peanut butter trophy (and scholarship) may be in her future! (Live judging happens March 18th).

Eight year old, Margalit M. of Raleigh has been cooking since she could walk and talk.  And it just might pay off.

Margalit, an aspiring sushi chef, is one of 10 finalists in the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest. Her recipe for WuShu Chicken Tacos came to her while she and her family were waiting for Korean take-out.    Sounding like a masterful cook, Margalit described the flavors of her recipe as “pairing very well together” and, no doubt, they do.  Up for grabs is a trip to New York and a $25,000 college scholarship.

Good luck to Margalit!

    Thanks for the good wishes. We’ve all got our fingers crossed.

    And as much as I personally would like to see Margalit become a pastry chef, she tells me that she actually said “sushi chef.” As long as she gets a 4-year degree it’s still a fine ambition, as far as I’m concerned.
