Meet Tony

Tony is a senior gentlemen who has been coming to the Lighthouse of Collier for several years as a client.  Tony was recently our “Guest Chef” for our cooking class. 

He treated us to his fabulous Steak Pizzaiola, made right in our kitchen at the Lighthouse.

Tony shared with staff and other clients how to shop for, prepare, cook and serve this flavorful, delicious treat.  And despite the challenges of working in a new, unfamiliar kitchen while teaching -he created a scrumptious Italian meal.  Tony’s dish came out perfect.  What a great way to learn about Italian cooking.

The clients also learned how to use adaptive kitchen aids and about specialized safety techniques.

And….what a great example of independence, friendship, sharing and camaraderie. 

Cheers and thank-you to Tony.
