‘Tis the Season to spice up your Holiday Menus

Reserve your Place at the Table Today


This is my absolute favorite time of year – The weather is crisp and my favored fruits and vegetables like, butternut squash, pumpkin, artichoke and figs are in season! It’s always around this time when I start planning my menus for the Holiday’s. First up is Thanksgiving and this year I’m doing something completely different.

The H.O.P.E. Foundation


There is no better feeling to experience than one the leaves an impact on someones life. This is what we have created with the H.O.P.E. Foundation, which is a 501c(3) non-profit that strives to “Help Others Pursue Education” in the culinary, visual and performing arts. Co-founded by Sweet Life Events President Monica Ulrich, and myself, where we strive to enhance the future of rising stars and young up-and-comers.

This is something I’ve been passionate about ever since I moved to the Big Apple six years ago! Check out my recent appearance on FOX Business – The Willis Report to learn more about the H.O.P.E. Foundation, and for some great recipes too! I have to say my re-imagined Gazpacho is a must to try! As we head into Fall, (which I’m absolutely loving!) check out my fall inspired recipes I featured on The Better Show. 

Save the Date: Wednesday October 29, 2014 for a Masquerade Black Tie Gala benefitting the H.O.P.E. Foundation. To learn more about H.O.P.E. and how you can get involved visit us at www.hopefoundationus.org
