Harrogate’s own Chef Joe Alonzo participated once again in The Hope Center’s 4th Annual Feast of Hope… “A Taste of the Jersey Shore Chef’s Night” this week. There were over 20 restaurants presenting their Chefs at their best that night, and Harrogate was the only table there from a Continuing Care Retirement Community. As guests returned for seconds and thirds and asked how they could enjoy a meal at our “restaurant”, they were shocked to learn that we are not a restaurant and our Residents eat like this every night!
Chef Joe prepared beautifully delicious shrimp wrapped in wonton and drizzeled with a zesty Asian sauce. He also served an amazing Four Squash Autumn Bisque. This scrumptious soup was made up of Pumpkin, Spaghetti, Acorn and Butternut Squash.
The Feast of Hope is sponsored by the Hope Center which is a program funded by the House of Hope of Ocean County, Inc., a not-for-profit organization initiated by the Clergy Association of Greater Toms River. Their mission is to help the aged, the homeless, the hungry, as well as those who are isolated and in need of support. Resources from individuals, businesses, public service agencies, churches, synagogues, schools, and foundations come together to embrace and support those among us who are the most vulnerable and in greatest need.
We are honored to sponsor this event every year.
The Harrogate residents cheered with pride when the Harrogate Team was awarded first place!!
