No matter which ticket you buy, make sure you save a food ticket for dessert! Last year Jonathan Club brought a bevy of delightful desserts. The favorite was the push pop!

I really enjoyed last year’s mozarella making demo from Di Stefano Cheese. It doesn’t hurt there’s a lot of eye candy and I’m not talking about the food. Oh mama mia! There will be other cooking demos. Be sure to check them out for free samples.
