“We are adding more restaurants to HomeGrown Geauga this year to highlight Geauga’s growing dining options,” says GGP President Tracy Jemison. “While we are raising funds to support GGP’s Youth Workforce training programs, we want to highlight the great businesses located in our own back yards.”
One restaurant added to the HomeGrown offerings this year is the new “Element 41” located on Chardon Square, who is making a name for themselves for their fine dining menu in a casual atmosphere. Geauga’s own Loretta Paganini School of Cooking will return this year, with Chef William Davis and their culinary students, providing an entrée option we know will be delicious.
Chefs Willis and Matteucci from University Hospitals Geauga culinary department is cooking up “Ahi Tuna Tartare with wasabi crème in a squid ink cornet AND whipped goat cheese with balsamic in a sun-dried tomato cornet.”
Other favorite restaurants will be adding to the menu: Blazin’ Bills serving their famous ribs and chicken wings. The full list of sponsoring restaurants includes Blazin’ Bills, Burntwood Tavern, DiBlasi’s Bakery, Element 41, Adams Reserve Cheddar, Loretta Paganini School of Cooking, Sirna’s Pizzeria, Tom’s Foolery, University Hospitals, Warren’s Spirited Kitchen and Welshfield Inn.
Funds raised will benefit GGP’s Youth Workforce Development programs, provided to Geauga students with the goal of “Preparing Tomorrow’s Workforce Today.” GGP’s Youth Workforce training programs have reached more than 3,500 students since the program’s inception in 2012. Students in 7th through 12th grades are introduced to career options, learn soft skills required in the workplace, develop resumes, practice interviewing, and are given the opportunity to apply for the GGP High School Summer Internship Program. Students report feeling more confident and prepared, and career paths are empowered through skills learned. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/GGPYouthPrograms.
