Chef Peter Morris has earned some significant accolades in his career. In 2014 alone, he won the New Jersey Restaurant Association's first annual Top Chef of New Jersey competition and the Tri-State Food Expo's culinary competition. In 2015, watch for him on the Food Network show "Beat Bobby Flay."
Chef Morris started his career in the restaurant world as a busboy when he was a teenager and soon found that his real home was in the kitchen. A graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, he's committed to "creating new combinations and experimenting with new flavors and techniques while being careful not to compromise the integrity of the product." He's also all about genuine hospitality--for guests and staff alike. He is currently Chef de Cuisine of Marilyn Schlossbach's Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park, NJ.
For "Savoring," to benefit ongoing Sandy recovery, Chef Morris has shared his grandmother Olympia Goscila Jubinsky's recipe "Baba's Pierogi." The recipe features a purple sweet potato filling punctuated with pork sausage seasoned with sage and some lovely grated manchego. The pierogies are served with a white sauce bright with shallots, riesling, and taleggio cheese. Chef Morris notes that "meat fillings and mushroom fillings would work too."
Chef Morris and his family recommend "Baba's Pierogi" for family weekday dinners or for holiday celebrations. We know the pierogies are taking our 2015 Super Bowl celebration up a notch or more!
