Joe Romanowski Culinary Education Foundation

JOCEF creates food based events to benefit scholarships for passionate and deserving culinary students from The Jersey Shore.

In memory of Chef Joe Romanowski 1960-2013


Would you like more information about how you can contribute to the JOCEF culinary scholarship program? Do you have a memory of a special meal Joe cooked for you at Joe and Maggie's Bistro or Bay Ave Trattoria? Are you a chef that Joe mentored early in your career? A student that benefits from a JOCEF scholarship? A business that would like to be a sponsor for the 2019 "Recipe for Success" fundraiser?

We would love to hear from you.
