S. ABINGTON TWP. — Abbiocco will once again participate in the Rotary Club of the Abingtons’ Taste of the Abingtons event at the Ramada, 820 Northern Blvd.
Scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 30 from 5-8 p.m., the 14th annual event will feature 30 local vendors offering samples of signature dishes, beverages and desserts. Admission is $25 and benefits the club’s community projects.
Supporting the Rotary club is important to Rose Brutico Fazio, co-owner, founder and Italian influence at Abbiocco.
“It’s nice to be part of the community and help out,” she said. “I know a lot of people who are involved with the rotary club. We are always looking to support them and help with their fundraisers. They do a lot of good for the community.”
The BYOB Italian American restaurant offers fresh food made to order.
“People come, they relax and take their time,” said Brutico Fazio. “It’s a homey atmosphere, people say its cozy and I think the reason we do well is because everything is made fresh to order.”
The restaurant plans to showcase three different dishes at Taste of the Abingtons. A pork loin with an apple cider sauce and roasted apples, a pureed, creamy pumpkin or butternut squash and apple soup featuring fall spices and a meatball dish.
Brutico Fazio believes the meatballs will be a big hit.
“They’re my mother’s recipe, my grandmother’s recipe, so it’s a family recipe for homemade meatballs. Everybody loves the meatballs, and they know I make them homemade, they’re not frozen or store bought,” she said.
As Taste of the Abingtons regularly takes place around the beginning of the fall season, the staff is excited to feature flavors of the season.
“We want to go with the fall flavors,” said head chef and co-owner, Ethan Snyder. “I think the fall dish is kind of a comfort food, filling, and the apples get everybody in the fall spirit.”
