Merion Resident Robb Fox, Partner of MGKF, named "Best Chef" in the Legal Community as the Winner at "Cooking up Justice"
It’s no surprise that Robb Fox, a prominent environmental attorney, can often be found in Bala Cynwyd at Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP, the environmental, energy and land use law and litigation firm he manages, but to many it is a surprise that he can also be found in the kitchen. For Fox, cooking is a passion and his culinary talent became very public on July 19, 2012, when he was named the “Best Chef” in the legal community. It was the third “Cooking Up Justice” Best Chef Competition, sponsored by the Legal Intelligencer to benefit Philabundance, and held at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia with 300 guests in attendance.
In advance, members of the legal community submitted their recipes, which were included in the Cooking Up Justice Cookbook. Then they brought their creations to life, and were judged by Judge Annette M. Rizzo, Philadelphia Court of Common Please, First Judicial District, Executive Chef and co-owner Jeff Michaud of Osteria and Amis Restaurants and Noah Mathay, Executive Chef of Philabundance and Chef Instructor at Philadelphia Community Kitchen. Fox’s award-winning dish was Short Ribs Two Ways -- Asian marinated short ribs and barbecue ribs with crunchy Asian slaw and steamed Chinese buns.
There were at least a dozen attorneys competing who were on a podium with their dishes on display in front of the crowd. The emcee of the evening was FOX-TV’s Mike Jerrick, co-host of “Good Day Philadelphia,” who escorted the judges to taste each dish for the competition. The participating “chefs” were a bit anxious and Fox was elated that his short ribs dish was the winning recipe. He said, “I really love to cook, and I was very honored to win, especially in support of Philabundance. Helping such an important cause made me reflect on how fortunate we are to have the opportunity to cook and eat what we want when so many people go hungry every day.”
