For the City Times
With the addition of chef Rick Ciszewski as chef at Hilltop Grand Village, he was also invited to take part in the ‘Men in the Kitchen’.
This fundraiser for The Family Center is in its 14th year. Celebrity chefs (and some professionals, too), create themed dinners for tables of eight guests. Sponsors and the public purchase tickets to the meal, with the proceeds benefiting the domestic abuse shelter in Wisconsin Rapids.
Hilltop will sponsor Ciszewski and provide the ingredients for the meal, which he will prepare. Hilltop’s executive director, Mitchell Bain, will help serve the meal.
This year’s event will be Feb. 25 at Bull’s Eye Country Club. The Hilltop Grand Village table will be themed for Mardi Gras and feature okra salad, shrimp creole and jambalaya with chocolate bon bons and pecan pie for dessert.
