Saga Humane Society holds first Cook Off for the year

Friday, March 18th, 2016

On Tuesday, March 15th, Luna Loca hosted Saga Humane Society’s “March Cook Off.” Pet lovers organized the event to help raise funds that assist in providing quality care to sheltered animals. The theme for this particular event was “Restaurant Chef Choice,” where all of the best restaurant chefs and cooks provided their favorite dishes to an eager and hungry crowd.Saga Humane Society Restaurant Cook Off-1
For only $20, those in attendance indulged in a variety of flavorful samples, all while helping a worthy cause. The menu consisted of: Caribbean Empanadas from Rain Restaurant, Pulled Pork & Cornbread from newly opened restaurant “High Tide”, Chicken Kurma & Chicken Manchurian with yellow rice from Basmati Restaurant, Mashed Balls from Chef Nook, Ginger Coconut Conch Chowder from Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant, Spiced Banana Rum Cake from Cook Nancy Nida and Gorgonzola Gnocchi with chicken bacon matriciana sauce by Ashley’s Smoothie Shack.Saga Humane Society Restaurant Cook Off-5
Saga sure knew how to keep the guests entertained, as acoustic music played in the background and raffle drawings took place throughout the evening. Out of six drawings, the top three winners were Diane and Jay Boughton, winners of “Pepperoni’s” 16” Specialty Pizza, Iliana Paj, winner of a $50 bar tab from “Luna Loca”, and Amanda Snow, who won a $50 gift certificate at “High Tides.”
Guests determine the winner by voting on their favorite food of the night. After tallying votes, the winners were announced. Coming in third place was Cook Nancy Nida for her delectable Spiced Banana Rum Cake. Second place went to High Tide Restaurant for their Pulled Pork & Cornbread, and taking top honors was Maresha from Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant.

Saga would like to thank those who came out and supported the occasion, and remember, spay or neuter your cats and dogs!
