After meeting Chefs Geoff Johnson from Copper Fish on Broadway and Matthew Zappoli from Tre Amici at James Beard House with Team NJ, I friended them on Facebook and kept in touch. It was through Facebook that I was invited to the Copper Fish on Broadway in Cape May to see a demo by Chefs Johnson and Zappoli. Cape May is about two and a half hours from my home so my wife and I decided to make a mini vacation.
The vacation started at the Philadelphia Flower Show followed by an evening in Atlantic City and the demo the following night. The flower show was crowded and taking photos was difficult but, the flowers were beautiful.
The demo was absolutely amazing. We had a fantastic time. They used liquid nitrogen to make a sorbet out of pomegranate juice, tequila and elderflower liquor. WOW. The rabbit agnolotti, branzino with jicama slaw and the braised beef short ribs were absolutely amazing. The chefs were entertaining, funny and the food was phenomenal – what a great way to spend a Friday night. The three and a half hours went by in no time. To top it off, they made a tiramisu using liquid nitrogen to make a mascarpone cream. What a great event. We can’t wait to go to another.

As usual, I lost in Atlantic City – what else is new?
