15th Birthday Celebration & Community Benefit - "Inspired Giving" for local charities
Designer grills
The Litchfield County Times - A review by Douglas P. Clement, editor of the Litchfield County Times & Passport Magazine
Preview Connecticut - "This is adventurous eating without being scary or off-putting. Peck leans heavily toward the unusual or the twist on the obvious." -- Janet Reynolds
LCT Magazine - "Carole Peck constructs dishes in her head in the way some people put together the notes of a jazzy composition, making each meal a little symphony of fresh, bold tastes." -- Abigail Leab Martin
American Style Magazine - Carole Peck's innovative, health-conscious food is showcased in a playful, multi-hued setting at the Good News Cafe, which her painter-husband oversees with loving attention.... Peck creates whimsical and imaginative culinary art that rivals the sculpture, paintings and decorative objects with which she and her husband have filled the cafe." -- Nancy Pappas
Connecticut Magazine reviews - Carole Peck is exploring the outer reaches of nutritionally correct food, coming up with dishes so scintillating they taste better than the rich heavy restaurant food of yore.... A visit is an eye-opening experience. Walls are hung with exciting contemporary art, table settings are playful, and the food is a bouquet of taste treats." -- Elise Maclay
Our Becky's Creations Gain Stamp of Approval - US Postal Service selects Good News pastry chef extraordinaire Becky Shea Vermilyea to create Christmas cookies photographed and featured in new Christmas stamp issue to be released for 2005 holiday season
Weekending in New England - "This is the hippest, most happening restaurant in town.... The two dining rooms...seem to be always busy, and sometimes people are craning their necks in search of celebrities." -- Betsy Witteman
Waterbury Republican-American - "For Carole Peck, executive chef and owner of the renowned Good News Cafe, it is food that helps to define a country's culture, just as much as its music, its dress and its language." -- Edna Wells
Connecticut Magazine Awards Good News 4-Star Rating - A review by restaurant critic Elise Maclay published in the March 2005 issue of CT Magazine
