A lunch to remember at the Glitz at the Ritz.
I had a delish lunch the other day at the “Glitz at the Ritz” presented by the Salvation Army. While I did miss the past years of cooking demos from the Ritz-Carlton chefs, my tablemates all agreed that the chocolate tart with graham cracker crust and meringue peaks that oozed caramel at first bite was one of the best desserts ever served at a local event.
“What were the best and worst meals you’ve ever been served at an event?” I asked. I have my list, but I was curious to find out from some of these people that attend numerous events. While I think it politically correct not to name the worst—where the event is being held often determines whether I eat a meal before leaving home—I thought it would be fun to have our readers e-mail some of the best. At the end of this blog you will find a comment button- please share some of your greatest dishes and why.
Perhaps we can share this list with future chairpersons. Nothing like a good braised short rib to get ticket sales up.

Of course, we did follow that with the burger of the day and fries. As I explained to Marjorie, “It’s all in the name of research.”
