The odds of a chef making it onto local TV, Food Network, The Talk, having recipes shared by people like Oprah, and having a wildly successful cookbook are pretty slim. So, you could imagine how much crazier it would be to stick two people into the equation, taking over the cooking and recipe scene together. But, that’s just what Joy and Judy Paoletti, The Twice Baked Twins, have done. While they are identical twins, they show you how to make a dish in not so identical ways: Joy makes the traditional version, while Judy creates the time-saving version. As we suggested, you might have seen The Twice Baked Twins on Food Network’s “Dear Food Network,” in your local paper, on The Talk, in countless online magazines, and even on a weekly basis on our own local Better CT on WFSB.
Well, we’ve got some great news to share: The Twice Baked Twins will be sharing samples of food and making an appearance at the 1900 W. Main Street Grade A Market in Stamford on 2/8/14 from 9-2 pm. They will have copies of their new book, entitled “The Judy and The Joy of Pasta and Olive Oil with a Twist” and will be signing them just for you. If you don’t have a copy, Grade A Market will have them for sale, don’t worry. Here’s an added benefit of buying their new cookbook on Saturday: 10% of the proceeds go to The Pink Fund. The Pink Fund is a vital organization that helps people undergoing cancer treatment afford the everyday costs of life while they try to pay their own medical bills. This charity is especially important to The Twice Baked Twins because Judy was recently diagnosed with cancer and beat it.The Twice Baked Twins Book Signing and Tasting Date: 2/8/14 Time: 9 am – 2 pm Price: Free Place: Grade A Market Address: 1990 W. Main St. Stamford, CT, 06902
About Cingari Shop Rite
After losing his job to the Depression, Salvatore Cingari bought an old school bus, loaded it with fresh produce and became a successful grocer, calling his business Grade A Market in Stamford, CT. In 1943, he moved to his first building and soon his sons joined him in the business. In 1991 the Cingari’s stores became members of the Wakefern/ShopRite cooperative. Today, four generations of Cingari’s own and operate 10 ShopRite locations in Fairfield and New Haven counties in Connecticut.
Grade A Markets is dedicated to supporting the many needs of its community. In a family-owned operation, the family lives and works in the communities it serves, delivering ShopRite’s traditional low prices to customers and offering the kind of customer service and personal touch only a neighbor can provide.
About The Pink Fund
While fighting for their lives, many breast cancer patients in active treatment lose their livelihoods. Unable to work, patients often face catastrophic financial losses. The Pink Fund, founded in 2006 by breast cancer survivor, Molly MacDonald, who experienced this herself, provides individuals in active treatment with up to 90 days of financial assistance to cover non-medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, housing, transportation and utilities. The Pink Fund helps to meet basic needs and decrease stress levels, helping breast cancer patients strengthen their fight to improve survivorship outcomes and quality of life.
