Chris Cassidy from the fire department’s Ladder Company 20 served up firehouse chef Rich Snyder’s stuffed meatloaf with candied carrots at the Tribeca Organization’s seoncd annual Tribeca Cookoff last week, above. CNN’s Aaron Brown, one of the judges, chatted with fire commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta before rushing back to the studio to film is show, right. This year the fire chefs lost to a pro, chef Joey Campanaro of The Harrison who also made stuffed meatloaf.

Sharon Decker, the T.O.’s outgoing executive director, said the group netted about $30,000 at the fundraiser. Decker, who is resigning at the end of the week, said she enjoyed working on the effort to help Tribeca small businesses recover after 9/11. “I will most especially miss just walking around the neighborhood, although it takes me 20 minutes to walk five blocks because there are so many people to greet and chat with,” Decker said. “I will miss all the good friends I have made.”
