Men Who Cook (Aired on April 9 & 10, 2016)
RadioRotary interviews Patterson Rotarian Mike Ingber about his club’s exciting fundraiser, Men Who Cook. Ingber is not only one of the organizers for the 20th installment of the popular event, but also one of the cooks, specializing in smoked salmon or ribs. This edition of Men Who Cook honors the Honorable James Reitz, judge of the family court in Carmel, NY, and of a drug court that helps addicts become rehabilitated rather than prisoners. Men Who Cook has about 15 professional chefs from local restaurants and about the same number of amateur foodies who man stations at the Star Ridge Banquet Center in Brewster. For a $70 entrance fee, you can patronize all of the stations featuring a variety of ethnic foods and American classics—but bring your own drinks and stemware. Everything else for a grand meal is provided. Patterson Rotarian Rich Parente, Owner/chef of the Clocktower Grill does a whole hog, which is spectacular.
