In the name of charity, Morello Italian Bistro put its culinary skills to work for Greenwich Hospital’s annual Great Chefs event on Friday, March 7.

The gala, which was held at Rye’s Westchester Country Club, is one of Greenwich Hospital’s three major annual fund-raisers, and benefits the nonprofit’s cancer, pediatrics, intensive care and emergency programs, among others. Morello Italian Bistro participated, along with more than 50 other top restaurants, chefs and beverage distributors from the Greenwich region. Morello’s team of chefs and restaurateurs has participated in the Great Chef series since 2008.

At this year’s gala, General Manager Jimmy Branigan and chefs Amanda Atkinson and Lyubomira Kyurkchieva created a yogurt panna cotta with fresh citrus, pomegranate, tarragon and semolina crumble. Also on the menu was bomboloni with vanilla sugar and dark chocolate sauce. Hundreds of supporters gathered to sample the culinary creations and support the hospital.

“It’s a privilege to give back to the Greenwich community and support Greenwich Hospital,” Mr. Branigan said. “The town has a reputation for being incredibly philanthropic, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that tradition.”

Morello is located at 253 Greenwich Avenue.
