Tuckahoe's own Annette Zito, founder of KitchAnnette™, has released a mouth-watering new book showing how to infuse at-home Oscar® Parties with “Red Carpet Style” called "KitchAnnette™ Red Carpet Menus: Delicious Dishes Inspired by 20 Years of Oscar® Best Picture Nominations"
An entertaining collection of menus and recipes of her highly anticipated annual Academy Awards® celebrations, it features clever twists on each year’s movie titles transformed into sumptuous meals.
The 2014 menu features such dishes as Philetmignon for "Philomena" – filet mignon with tarragon butter glaze, Nebraskorn for "Nebraska" – a creamy Romano corn and Baklavity to celebrate "Gravity" – weightless phyllo dough rolls with a rich dense walnut and honey filling.
Food and entertaining have always been Annette's passion since growing up in various family-owned food businesses in the Bronx. She created KitchAnnette™ to show how engaging and easy the kitchen can be. She launched JUICE THIS™ Perfectly Portioned Produce Packs in 2013 and is currently developing new kitchen products.
