Yankees Love: Enzo’s Dugout Visit

We held a contest recently where parents and their kids ages 7-14 needed to record a video about why they love the Yankees and P.C. Richard & Son.

The lucky winner was former Little League Yankee, PSP 3000 lover, and 7 year old Enzo Cupani. Here was his video submission:

Recipe: Grilled Peaches & Cream

Toni Senecal from Toni On! New York stopped by one of our P.C. Richard & Son showrooms to check out some of the BBQ grills we have available and learn a fantastic recipe from our own Pat Dehner. He explained that our gas grills range from $99 to $8,000 for your absolute dream grill, and Toni was shocked to hear that you can cook anything on a Weber grill that you’d normally cook in your oven! Yes, we have done demonstrations where chocolate chip cookies were made on one of these fine grills.

Pat didn’t make chocolate chip cookies with Toni this time, but made a delicious modified version of peaches and cream. Check out the video here, and the … Read more...
