Connections: Summer of Food - Chef Jeff Caruso

Jul 21, 2016

Our Summer of Food series of conversations continues with the unusual story of a local soup kitchen that has become known for its outstanding food.

We meet the man who helped build the reputation of A Meal and More, which serves more than 10,000 meals a year to people in need. Jeff Caruso also has a new book out, detailing his upbringing, and how his family heritage (both Jewish and Italian) contributed to his culinary approach. It’s an approach that took him throughout the food world in New York, Philadelphia, and the Hudson Valley.  Our guests:

  • Jeff Caruso, chef at A Meal and More
  • Patti Blaine, president of the Board of Directors for A Meal and More
