Allow us to introduce you to one special kid: Jasper.
Jasper is a bit of a legend in the kitchen at the Lighthouse of Manasota where he’s known to craft a very special sauce. We understand it’s a complex blend of ketchup, mustard and mayo, but the most important (secret) ingredient is love. As a participant in programs at the Lighthouse of Manasota, Jasper and his family were kind enough to stop by the Michael’s On East kitchen last week to show our Executive Chef Jamil Pineda a few tricks to delicious sauce making. (Chef Jamil reports it was the highlight of his week, and Jasper will make a fine “saucier” when he grows up.)
We hope you’ll be joining us (plus Jasper and family!) at Art in the Dark supporting the Lighthouse of Manasota on March 24. Click here for details about the special fundraising event.
