Greenwich Time - Hurrah for hors d'oeuvres! Newbie judges pick ...
Carolyn and Jerry Anderson have a unique way of
thanking the clients of their real estate business,
Anderson Associates of Greenwich.
Annually, they host a "best of" tasting under a huge
tent on the grounds of their backcountry Greenwich
estate and invite 200 or so new and old friends who
act as food critics for the night. On a recent Friday,
with the hint of fall in the air, these newly appointed
judges sat around large round tables, sipping
glasses of wine and eagerly awaiting the first of 20
hors d'oeuvres - provided by 10 of our area's top
caterers - that would be nibbled, dissected,
discussed and finally judged.
Behind the scenes
This is the third time the Andersons have held this
event. They started with pizza, judged truffles and
vanilla ice cream last year, and decided to tackle
hors d'oeuvres this night. Each caterer was asked to
provide one hot and one cold nibble that would be
dropped off before guests arrived. The caterers were
not allowed to stay because this was a blind tasting.....
