Contestant from all over came to test their culinary skills in our annual cook-off.This is an event held in conjunction with the Staten Island Advance where we request recipes from consumers and we submit them into our “recipe swap” contest.  We then select winners at an award ceremony  held in February.  We also make a donation to the Staten Island  Children’s Fund, an organization that supports educational and health awareness programs.  Cookbooks derived from the recipe swap are  published and distributed throughout NYC and at all our store locations.
