  • A Quick Hello Before the Big Bake

    Monday, October 27, 2014

    After a couple weeks away due to all the festivals, today when I walked back into the kitchen I was reminded of how much I miss this place whilst away! With the Shabbat Project coming up and all our weekly events taking place, the kitchen today has been a hype of activity! I walked in to be greeted by the delicious smells of freshly cooked soups and pastas prepared by the team members from Priority Planners, by an enormous number of people as we had a corporate group, a whole series of caters AND all our staff, and especially by the really warm, inviting and excited faces of everyone in the kitchen. In every blog I write something about how this place is really a family and it’s really heightened after not seeing each other for even just a few short weeks – OBK, you really are a very special place!

    Special…and very busy! Since the last blog post, we have once again been flat out! We have also enjoyed multiple Jewish festivals recently and so I hope you and your family all have had a wonderful and special time over the various yomtovs.

    This is really a short blog – just a quick hello and update to let you know that it’s all full steam ahead here at the kitchen. We have had OOSH groups, corporates, parties, catering jobs and simchas galore.

    In particular in the last few days we have been incredibly busy producing challah dough in mass quantities – nearly 1800 kilos to give you an idea – for tonight’s Shabbat Project Challah Baking. Some 2,400 people will be there to join in the community spirit and we just wanted to say a huge kol hakavod to the Shabbat Project and all those involved for their amazing efforts in putting this event together. We are so excited to be a part of this exciting initiative and I think that the incredible OBK staff who really made this happen deserve a HUGE thank you and again, a kol hakavod. Each one of the team involved really stepped up to make this happen and we are very proud of OBK’s role in the event. For photos of our team at work – see below 

    As I said – today’s post is short and sweet but I just wanted to finish up this week by showing you all our new picture decorating the walls of OBK created by Luke Power. Luke, thank you so much – it looks fantastic!!

    Good luck to everyone involved in the Shabbat Project this weekend - I can't wait to update with photos in the next blog :) 

    And so – until next time…
