Connor Snarski says he didn’t find his job at the recently opened Granite Tapas & Cocktail Lounge (1461 Hooksett Road, Suite A6, Hooksett, 232-1421, find them on Facebook) — the job found him. It all started when a former classmate reached out to Snarski online and told him that her cousin’s new restaurant was looking for a chef. After meeting with the owners, he knew right away that it was a good fit, and he was offered the job as executive chef. Snarski got his start as a chef in high school, where he participated in a twoyear culinary program and worked in kitchens at local restaurants. Prior to Granite Tapas, Snarski cooked at Surf Restaurant in Nashua and was the sous chef at Hilton Garden Inn in Manchester.

We encourage [the food vendors] to try out new dishes, so there’s a variety,” Hunt said. “If they have a new dish or a specialty that they want to do, this is an opportunity for them to introduce it to more than 700 people.” Ballot boxes will be placed around the event where tasters can vote for their favorite samples to win in five categories: Best Beverage, Best Appetizer, Best Entree,
1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt Whip all ingredients into a medium bowl until smooth. Makes 10 to 12 small pancakes.
Best Dessert and Best Overall Presentation. Winners in each category will be awarded A Taste of Milford plaques. Hunt said that most people find themselves “stuffed” after eating about half of the samples, and that the best strategy for maneuvering the tasting is to map out beforehand a few different beverages, appetizers, entrees and desserts that you’d like to try. “From the really nice entrees all the way down to chicken wings, there’s something for everyone,” Hunt said.
