Description

6th Annual Benefit for Culinary Arts Students from the Jersey Shore

The Joe Romanowski Culinary Education Foundation was established in the memory of chef Joseph Romanowski who mentored and nurtured many of the Jersey Shore’s finest up-and coming chefs. Romanowski was chef and owner at his highly acclaimed restaurants, Joe and Maggie’s Bistro in Long Branch and Bay Ave Trattoria in Highlands.

Funds raised at the annual event are awarded as scholarships to students at the Culinary Education Center in Asbury Park. Culinary Education Center is the collaboration between Brookdale Community College and the Monmouth County Vocational School District. Since the nonprofit was formed in 2014, JOCEF awarded more than $150,000 in scholarships.

Recipe for Success is an evening that features tastings from over 20 of the Jersey Shore’s best restaurants, samples of wine, craft beer and spirits, an oyster bar, the opportunity to taste rare wines by the glass and live, silent and chance auctions.

Big Joe Henry of New Jersey 101.5 will once again join us as emcee for the evening.
