Restaurateur Cookie Till and partner/instructor Joey G will participate in ‘Dancing Under the Atlantic City Stars.’

Cookie Till, Owner, Steve & Cookie’s

Owner of Steve & Cookie’s in Margate for over 20 years, Cookie Till’s name is synonymous with really good food. In addition to her work in the food business, which has evolved to include a farmers market, Ventnor No. 7311 Coffee & Small-Batch Bakery and a traveling kitchen, Cookie is a prolific advocate of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. She feels that the Community FoodBank is one of the most important safety nets for the most vulnerable in our community, and that the group shares her aspirations for getting kids the proper nutrition needed to thrive, as well as teaching them where real food comes and how to prepare it. Without any dance experience, Cookie is willing to get on stage, saying, “Put your money where my dancing shoes are!”
