Let There Be Truffles: Wine & Dine for a Good Cause

11 Apr 2015, by Susan Alexander Truffles in Company News

America’s leading truffle expert and developer of the country’s largest truffle orchard, Susan Alexander, is joining Sussex County’s most knowledgeable group of food professionals, SoDel Concepts, for Let There Be Truffles: a 3-night event celebrating unique truffle dishes and mighty fine wines. The best part? It’s all for Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth, a non-profit organisation committed to helping homebound seniors maintain healthy, independent lives by providing them 2 deliciously nutritious meals a day, 365 days each year.

Donating their time and mad skills to serve up multicourse truffle menus for the event are three SoDel Concepts chefs: Chef Jason Dietterick for Bluecoast on the 21st, Chef Chris Parks for Lupo di Mare on the 22nd, and Chef Maurice Catlett for Fish On on the 23rd; and lending a hand at all three restaurants is their corporate chef himself, Chef Doug Ruley, who has received many awards, including those for menu creation and meal preparation at the James Beard House.
