Atlantic Cape salutes its sustaining sponsors
Steve Dunn ’68 is an assistant professor of medicine at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He is investigating the diabetic complications of kidney disease. Dunn was the second Student Government Association president and recalls beginning his ACC experience in the old ACHS building at night and moving to the Mays Landing Campus later. “ACCC has made great strides since my days,” he writes. “ACC was a great, worthwhile experience.”
Colleen Winston ’85 ACA was appointed pastry chef at Normandy Farm Hotel and Conference Center in Blue Bell, Pa. Winston has continued her education over the years at the International Pastry Arts Center in Elmsford, NY, and the International School of Confectionery in Gaithersburg, MD. She has worked as pastry chef at many notable restaurants, including LaTruffe Restaurant and the Rittenhouse Hotel, both in Philadelphia.
Chef Michael Schlow ’87 ACA, owner of several restaurants in the Boston area, will open a new Italian fine-dining restaurant, Alta Strada, at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The deal was reported in several publications, including The Boston Business Journal and The Hartford Courant. Schlow will open the 8,000-square-foot eatery, which will seat 225 patrons in a setting with indoor and outdoor seating, next spring. Schlow also owns and operates Radius Restaurant, Via Matta, and Great Bay, all in Boston.
Evelyn Benton ’89 ACA celebrates her 15th year as director of the Community FoodBank of NJ, Southern Branch. She writes, “Working for a non-profit is rarely financially rewarding and often extremely challenging, but it’s the cause and the mission that make it worth the effort. It’s what brings you back to reality when you’re wiped out and feeling discouraged. For us here at the FoodBank, it’s knowing that you are having an immediate effect on someone’s life by providing them with food for today and hope for tomorrow. And that’s the best feeling of all!”
Lisa Savage ’91 ACA was mentioned in an article titled “Survivor: Shore Dining,” in The Philadelphia Inquirer. The article mentions the struggles of staying afloat in the restaurant business. After 13 years of building a devoted clientele for her restaurant Savaradio’s in Ventnor, Savage moved inland and the restaurant closed. Savage has returned to Ventnor to open Sage, where many of the signature items that took off at Savaradio still exist. She hopes to open an Italian prepared-foods market directly next door to Sage, where she will sell homemade pastas, bread and imported cheese.
Amanda Nahas-Christodoulou ’00 ACA has launched her own personal chef business, From Scratch. She will cook meals for clients in their own kitchen based on nutritional and dietary guidelines. From Scratch is located in Somers Point and was mentioned in The Press of Atlantic City.
Nicole Martinelli ’07 ACA is teaching cooking classes at Whole Foods Market in Sarasota, Fla.
