Chef Pat Marone’s contribution to the culinary industry has spanned over 25 years. He has been associated with numerous five star restaurants including Naples 25, located in the Gold Coast of Long Island’s premier luxury shopping center, Americana Manhasset. Currently Chef Marone is the Executive Chef of The Regency at Glen Cove, New York, an assisted seniors living facility. His program at the facility, called “Cooking Italian for Seniors” showcases his passion for Italian cuisine as well as entertains the seniors. For this, Chef Marone, we salute you.

Being a dishwasher at the age of 15, started Chef Marone on his culinary adventure. He knew then that his only interest was to become a chef. He learned to sharpen his skills through hands on experience in many restaurant kitchens. Chef Marone’s specialty is of course, Italian cuisine, which he enjoys immensely. He creates and serves new and exciting pasta dishes which his guests truly enjoy. Among his favorites are “Cavatelli with Sausage, Mushrooms and Shallots” in a pink cognac sauce and “Salmon al Forno” with capers, tomatoes, white wine and lemon which are included on the menu's he handcrafts daily for the residents of The Regency. He states, "I love to create new taste sensations for our residents especially for those with dietary restrictions. The Regency residents have become my family and I enjoy making their dining experience special." Besides demonstrating his “Cooking Italian for Seniors” program at the Regency, Chef Marone also performs demonstrations at senior centers, libraries and churches. The seniors look forward to attending his cooking demonstrations, loves his humor and most of all eating all the great food he prepares. He has introduced a new approach to the senior dining experience, implementing many changes that enhance The Regency’s cuisine. He has thrown his heart and soul into the creation of flavorful menus that appeal to a wide range of seniors without infringing on their dietary restrictions. With all that you would think it would be enough. But, Chef Marone has also worked as an extra in two movies that featured Robert DeNiro, A Bronx Tale and Analyze That. A great second career just in case the cooking stuff don’t pan out. And I don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon.
