The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC will launch the Grand Re-Opening of its Port Washington store located at 65 Shore Road with a special appearance and cooking demonstration by acclaimed chef Carlo Soranno on Friday, June 29th from 2 pm to 7 pm and Saturday, June 30th from 10 am to 3 pm.
Chef Carlo will be preparing the elite Wagyu sliders and taking beef to another level. The meat from wagyu is known worldwide for its marbling characteristics, increased eating quality through a naturally enhanced flavor, tenderness and juiciness. The increased marbling also improves the ratio of monounsaturated fats to saturated fats. Wagyu is literally Japanese cow and in several areas of Japan, beef is shipped with area names. Wagyu beef contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef. A 4-oz. portion of ground Wagyu beef contains 330 calories, or about 83 calories per oz. In comparison, a 4-oz. portion of 95 percent lean ground meat contains 193 calories.
In addition to Chef Carlo’s cooking demonstration, there will be lots of food samplings from the farm to the fork including local produce to a variety of imported cheeses to our Own Brand products.
