The JOCEF Recipe for Success Gala, which raises funds for the Joe Romanowski Culinary Education Foundation, was held at the Navesink Country Club a sold out event that featured tastings from over 20 of the Jersey Shore’s best restaurants. Samples of wine, beer, and spirits were complemented by an oyster bar and the opportunity to taste rare wines.
The Foundation was established in memory of Joe Romanowski who mentored and nurtured many of Jersey Shore’s nest upcoming chefs, and funds scholarships for students at the Culinary Education Center in Asbury Park. “We have created this wonderful scholarship program as a tribute to Joe’s passion for food and his devotion to mentoring students,” said Romanowski’s wife, Maggie Lubcke.
