On Saturday, May 11, 2013 the Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center along with Gia Pace of NBC sponsored an Iron Chef Cook-off Contest to help raise funds for the Tuxedo Recreation Department.
Supervisor Peter Dolan cooked alongside Chris Nirschel, the newest star on the Food Network Channel. The Iron Chef contest is known for their secret ingredient aspect. The much anticipated secret ingredient that was introduced to the contestants was “ginger”. Supervisor Dolan created his masterpieces with an ease of confidence resulting in a perfect score for his ginger glazed blueberry crepes. Although he lost the contest by one point, Dolan is quoted as saying, “The real winners are the six kids who get to come to our Town’s Summer Camp Program for free thanks to the efforts of The Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center, Gia Pace and Chis Nirschel."
The Tuxedo Art Show was such a huge success that we opened for an additional day resulting in a total of three pieces of art being sold and two in contract.
