NSJ Senior Center Fund Raiser a Tasty Success

Colombian cuisine, presented in three courses, with South American wines, February 16, at the North San Juan Senior Center on Route 49, was an epicurean delight.  Chef Edison Zapata, a native of Colombia, showed us why Colombia is on the 10 best places to visit in 2013.  Starting with a salad, which resembled a prawn cocktail, followed by succulent braised beef with fried plantain, rice and beans, and then be still my beating heart, an authentic chocolate dessert, didn’t Colombia discover Chocolate?

The senior center transformed itself into an elegant dining room with beautiful tablecloths, with South American Music in the background.  The dinner began at 6, and diners lingered over their coffee and desert until 8:30.   Everyone agreed, the fund raiser was a great success.

Looking forward to our next fund raising gourmet adventure?  On Saturday, April 20, LJ’s Catering presents an Evening in Tuscany. Chefs Linda Metcalf and Jerry Nurse, famous for creating party extravaganzas, bring their talents to the North San Juan Senior Center.  More on this later.
