It was a foggy Monday night when guests, chefs, and culinary students converged on the Navesink Country Club for the annual Jocef, Joe Romanowski Culinary Fund Raiser. A veritable who’s who in the local food scene, Flavor Chronicles brings you pictures of some of the most beautiful creations you’ve ever seen.
Beautiful, delicious ingredients, carefully assembled for guests to enjoy is what you will find at the JOCEF Recipe for Success fundraiser. An event created to financially help and inspire culinary students.
The process of writing about food is often like going on a blind date. The hope for a mutual attraction, a little something in common, and maybe a good time is what you’re looking for. Tasting several dishes cooked by the kitchen crew of a restaurant is no different. You hope for something delicious, food that has been prepared properly and maybe, if you’re lucky you get an unexpected taste experience to write about.
Last post in my trilogy of the JOCEF fundraiser. This was in my humble opinion, the biggest surprise of the night. Like mermaids rising from the briny sea, the women you see picture were indeed, Oyster Girls. They shucked oysters for you on the spot. To say this fund raiser was a fun time would be an under-estimation. The people who planned this out should take their bows…they produced a spectacular show.
