with the Stars on Menu for Frank Benowitz
HRIM faculty member Frank Benowitz was cooking with the stars this past
weekend at the Food and Wine Festival in Atlantic City. He assisted chefs
Michael Gilletto and George Kyrtatas with their live stage demonstrations
on Aug. 1. Both chefs prepared delectable dishes before a packed crowd
of about 500 people at Balley's Casino, while many more visitors listened
in the background as they browsed exhibits and waited in line for photos
and autographs. Other festival activities took place at Caesars and Showboat
casinos. An estimated 30,000 people attended.
According to Benowitz, chefs Gilletto and Kyrtatas have accepted his invitation
to visit the MCCC campus during the coming year to appear on the HRIM
program's "Dish It Out" TV series. The show is filmed by Mercer
TV students and aired on the college's cable network. See photos of Frank
with chefs here.
