On Thursday 30th November, Chai’s flagship centre in Hendon was buzzing with excitement and anticipation as Denise Phillips, leading Jewish cookery writer prepared to launch her new cookbook, ‘Celebrate Every Day’ in aid of Chai. Whilst Denise demonstrated how to make an assortment of flavours of mini Rugelach – a Jewish sweet pastry, British film, theatre and television actress, Maureen Lipman CBE, brought much laughter with her quick- witted charm to the capacity filled room.
Denise speaking about the inspiration behind the cookbook, said: “This new cook book celebrates every day as an occasion to enjoy life with friends and family. There are over 60 beautifully photographed, eclectic and crowd pleasing recipes which I hope will bring joy and laughter and of course good food to the table. It’s the perfect way to enhance good times and happy memories and support such a worthwhile cause.”
Following the demonstration, guests were able to sample some of Denise’s delicious bakes and purchase a signed copy of the cookbook.
Chai’s Chairman, Louise Hager, said: “We are so delighted that Denise chose Chai to benefit from the proceeds of ‘Celebrate Every Day’. This helps ensure that Chai can continue to provide our specialised care and support that makes such a difference to people’s lives. On behalf of everyone at Chai, our heartfelt thanks to Denise.”
