Teresa Giudice, the best cook among Bravo’s "Real Housewives of New Jersey," will be the guest of honor at a “an evening of fashion, food and Ferraris” at The Experience at Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island. The event takes place this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and proceeds benefit Harboring Hearts, which provides away-from-home housing for heart patients and their families. Caterer Elegant Affairs will prepare recipes from Giudice’s cookbook “Fabulicious” (Running Press, $18.95) which will also be for sale. (Already have a copy? Bring it along and get it signed.)
The ebullient Giudice and her lusty fare may be overshadowed by the room’s habitual denizens: dozens of gleaming Italian sports cars. Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island moved into this double-decker showroom last fall and owner Stuart Hayim teamed up with Elegant Affairs' Andrea Correale to turn the space into a part-time party venue. “The Experience” hosts a few events every month, from small corporate gatherings to weddings, bar mitzvahs and charity benefits like this one.
Tickets for the Giudice evening are $85 and can be purchased by calling 516-671-7575 ext. 308. Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is at 65 South Service Rd., Plainview, 516-676-8500.
