Accurso’s had the sweetest thing at The Pitch‘s Sugar Rush

- Sugar Rush was a celebration of all things sweet.
Accurso’s owner, Anthony Accurso, knew that he needed an edge to compete in The Pitch’s Sugar Rush, held February 27 at the Guild. So he called in his secret weapon: his grandmother.
Angel Barelli opened her kitchen last week to the restaurant’s two chefs, Michael Clough and Joseph Jackson, and showed them how to make her recipe for sour-cream-topped, New York-style cheesecake. Jackson added a Concord-grape reduction and a peanut-butter cream sauce (and put honey in the sour cream) for his new version of the dessert.
