Photo Recap: Evening in Good Taste with Food Bank for Westchester

Last week, Food Bank for Westchester held their 27th annual An Evening of Good Taste (#EIGT2017), featuring 25 of Westchester County’s top restaurants and chefs. The organization’s fall fundraiser, which attracts hundreds of people from throughout the region, spreads the message to end hunger in Westchester County. All proceeds from the event go directly to support the Food Bank for Westchester and its children’s programs. Nearly, one-third of the 200,000 people in the county who are hungry are children.

Here’s a delicious photo recap of some of the exciting offerings presented by the area’s top chefs:



Polpettina’s epic porchetta. Michael Abruzese served up a porchetta sandwich with watercress and roasted garlic aioli housed in onion brioche.

Technique Catering’s “Chicago Dog” was mini but packed a punch with lots of toppings, including sport pepper, tomato, white onion, relish, dill pickle, celery salt and mustard.

abigail kirsch Abigail Kirsch serves up style every time, and this year was no different. Their savory option included ginger lime tuna tacos. The ginger lime tuna taco included a chipotle avocado mash and pineabble poblano slaw.

Bona Bona Ice Cream’s Food Truck was on hand, and although it was a chilly evening, I couldn’t resist the Nutella S’more sundae featuring Nick DiBona’s signature restaurant-quality ice cream-gelato crossover dessert. I mean, they torched the marshmallow topping and everything. (Note: I may have sworn slightly in this video… What can I say? I was excited!)

MP Taverna

Hello, beautiful! MP Taverna’s milk-fed veal tartare with preserve quince, Greek yogurt, fennel, pomegranate and grilled lavash was an IntoxiKate favorite!

crabtree's kittle house

Always inventive and farm-fresh, Chef Jay Lippin, of Crabtree’s Kittle House Restaurant & Inn, offered Food Bank supporters a savory “flan” with Hudson Valley corn, heirloom tomatoes, and NY state feta cheese. All. Day. Long.

Lulu Cake Boutique’s designs are never short of amazing, but I was blown away with the detail and color on this Day of the Dead-themed cake.
