As always, Whitelock Community Farm's Greens Cook Off featured the best tasting home-made greens recipes you'll ever find, with dishes inspired by neighbors from as close as Brookfield Ave. and as far as Vietnam and Cameroon. This year, friends from Beth Am Synagogue also presented a variety of sweet and savory kugel casseroles to offer new tastes to attendees.
