Annual Cook Off, 2016

Annual Cook Off, 2016

Every year, Hudson Place Realty hosts a highly anticipated annual office cook off. Agents, spouses and close HPR friends are invited to prepare their best dish within a predetermined theme. Winner of last year’s competition, Taryn Byron, chose homemade pie – no store bought crust or pie filling allowed – as this year’s challenge.

The event was held at HPR Broker Jon Sisti’s beautiful brownstone, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Contestants, friends, and spouses judged this year’s competition. It was a close call, but after several recounts (hello Florida!) Gold Circle of Excellence winner Dylan Mader’s Picadillo pie (a Latin twist on shepherd’s pie) was this year’s winner!

Runner up was last year’s winner, Taryn Byron. Taryn’s apple pie had an incredibly flaky home made crust with a yummy medley of apple filling. Dylan gets to hold the trophy and now has a year to contemplate next year’s theme…the possibilities are deliciously endless. Here is a recipe for my easy Key Lime pie. It wasn’t a winner, but It received some great feedback! I also made a home made & gluten free, gingersnap crust.

The Italian/American seafood restaurant and market (with seafood offered at wholesale prices!) will offer a wide range of the freshest fish, clams, oysters, weekly specials and more. Hoboken can certainly use a place like this, and we’re excited to see what they have in store for us! The business is also hiring for all positions.
