Meet Chef Tommy!

April 2, 2015 - Serving Seniors

We are thrilled to have Chef Tommy DiMella from the Del Mar Country Club create an exclusive, mouth-watering menu with fine wine pairings for our upcoming Experience of a Lifetime event benefiting our Senior Nutrition Program. He will take attendees on a culinary adventure as he shares his creative insight on each course.

Originally from New Jersey, Chef Tommy was raised in an Italian household where food was paramount. “A meal was not just substance,” he explains, “it was and still is a gathering of friends and family sharing experiences and laughs over food made from scratch.”

Chef Tommy has been cooking for over 20 years now using all types of cuisines from different parts of the country. His travels have given him a deep understanding of depth of flavors and purity of ingredients. DiMella says, “I like my food to be composed of light, clean flavors and pure ingredients steeped in seasonality.” We sincerely appreciate Chef Tommy’s use of seasonal ingredients and his focus on fresh food as we serve healthy meals to low-income seniors 365 days a year.

DiMella has a great understanding of what the San Diego community enjoys eating and what boundaries can be explored and pushed. It will be quite exciting to see what creations he dreams up and which boundaries he pushes come May 7th!  Funds raised from this evening will help us continue to fight senior hunger with our nutrition program.
