How can I be a judge of this thing?
Newsday has an article about the 13th Annual American Culinary Federation fundraiser for the South Nassau Communities Hospital. The big winners: Pine Hollow Country Club, Butterfield's, The Bridge, and Baking by Design (located in Queens).
But this sounds disturbing:
Best entree went to The Bridge in West Islip for chef John Montgomery's veal short-rib-stuffed calamari with celeriac cake and lobster-foie gras ravioli.
Short-ribbed stuffed calamari? What on earth?
