Helping teens recover from substance abuse issues. That’s the mission of Hope Academy, and to help keep up the support, more than a dozen local restaurants are making some delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts and more for YOU to try!
Here to explain the upcoming benefit and share the tasty dishes are Mariann Williams, Hope Academy, Chef Ian Kille, MCL, and Chef Rueben Cisneros, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering.
Together, they make us some Parmesan Breaded Pork Chops with Peppered Bacon Gravy and then later, Shrimp & Grits!
