Northshore and McCormick Presents an Evening with AJ & Anna Rossi!
Friends, foodies, Northshore readers, and fans of the Fox reality TV show MasterChef convened at McCormick Kitchens in Saugus on Wednesday for a fun-filled night of cooking and cocktails. The evening's special guests were Boston residents and Master Chef contestants AJ and Anna Rossi, who prepared gourmet hors d'oeuvres including roasted pepper crostinis with anchovies, key lime bars, mint lime watermelon cubes, white clam and fig-and-prosciutto pizzas. The two chefs offered cooking tips and tricks and interacted with guests throughout the evening. Happy guests went home with full bellies, not to mention handy party favors—kitchen-ready cooking utensils and recipes from the evening's menu. Andover Liquors kept guests armed with a variety of wines, as well as cilantro and cranberry martinis created especially for the event. Frank McCormick, whose namesake shop earned a nod from Northshore editors for Best Kitchen Design in the magazine's 2012 BONS issue, served as the event's gracious host.
