Luciano’s of Chicago readies for Hands for Hunger’s 5th annual Paradise Plates charity event
Published: Jul 27, 2013
Luciano’s of Chicago has started its preparations for Hands for Hunger’s one-of-a-kind culinary experience and most anticipated charity event in The Bahamas – Paradise Plates, a culinary celebration benefiting the fight against hunger in the Bahamian community.
As a culinary partner of the event, Luciano’s is excited to once again join this year’s Paradise Plates marking its fifth year of participation in the lively evening that features gourmet cuisine from top local chefs and restaurants, fine wine, beer and cocktail tastings. Additional highlights of the evening include exciting silent auctions, raffles and live musical entertainment, all contributing to a great cause.
“Paradise Plates has become one of our favorite annual traditions since its inception in 2009,” said Sue Lawrence, director of special events at Luciano’s of Chicago. “It’s an event we particularly look forward to as it’s all for a great community cause, as well as being an enjoyable event that showcases culinary art at its best.”
At last year’s event, Luciano’s of Chicago prepared a number of unforgettable and delectable dishes which included variations on arancine (traditional Italian deep-fried stuffed risotto rice balls), as well as variations on meatballs, including Luciano’s signature Beef and Pork Meatball, with a choice of Penne or Rigatoni Pasta with Pomodoro Sauce and much more.
“Over the years, Paradise Plates has become an annual social highlight in Nassau. This year we expect to offer guests and supporters a sensational Luciano’s of Chicago experience with the culinary options being prepared for the event,” continued Lawrence.
The restaurant’s culinary team will prepare a number of menu selections which will be featured at Paradise Plates on Saturday, September 28, in the Crown Ballroom, Atlantis.
