A Taste Of The Gold Coast

The 15th Annual Culinary Delights provides a sampling of the best food in the area

Food vendors from all over the North Shore treated guests to a sampling of their best dishes at the Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce 15th Annual Culinary Delights, held Thursday, April 26, at the Glen Cove Mansion.

The elegant affair gave attendees the opportunity to try the menus of new restaurants and indulge in everything from the steak tips prepared by The Meat House in Roslyn, to the vegan salads and burgers offered by Sweet Tomato of Glen Cove. Baked goods, bananas foster crepes, and a selection of wine and beer were among some of the more decadent offerings.

Danny Gagnon, executive chef of DoraNonnie in Glen Head, and a contestant on season five of Top Chef, made a guest appearance to discuss his experiences as a chef. He had meatball lollipops as well as cream of carrot and sambuca soup shots available for tasting.

The event was very well-attended, and attracted more guests than in years past, according to Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Phyllis Gorham. Along with the guest appearance and some words from Mayor Suozzi, the event featured a 50/50 raffle and vendors exhibiting their wares. Many of the donations from local businesses helped to make the event such a success.

News

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
