It was only a matter of time before there would be a show on TV about the food bounty that exists not only in South Jersey but in all of the state. There’s so much, in fact, that there will be two shows that will be covering food here in Jersey – thanks to the folks at New Jersey Network.
This Saturday, you have the opportunity to see a sneak preview of one of the shows. Here is the press release:
“You are invited to enjoy a savory summer meal under a tent on Saturday night, June 26th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Hosted by Wegmans and the East Coast Food & Wine Festival, NJN’s Recipe for a Perfect Summer Evening will help support NJN’s two new programs: NJ Fresh and NJ Eats.
Catch a sneak preview of NJ Fresh and meet the hosts and producers of both new programs.
Chat with several of the celebrity speakers including Mary Ann Espositio of Ciao Italia, Barbara Seelig-Brown of Stress Free Cooking and Mark Phillips of Enjoying Wine with Mark Phillips – all of whose programs are shown on NJN.
Enjoy a sumptuous dinner prepared by Wegmans’ chefs, with almost all food sourced from local farmers as well as local meat, cheese and fruit producers. Each course will be exquisitely paired with an award-winning New Jersey wine.
The dinner will be held alfresco at the festival event site, Hopewell Valley Vineyards, 46 Yard Road, Hopewell NJ 08634 . Tickets for the dinner are available on the festival website www.slowfoodandwinefestival.com.
Tickets are $125 with all profits going to support NJN’s NJ Fresh and NJ Eats programs, which will begin airing this summer. Enjoy wonderful food, great wines and celebrity dinner partners and help support NJN and New Jersey programming.”
