Our Pairing This Sunday Will Aid Hurricane Ida Victims
The neighborhoods of many New Jerseyans are unrecognizable right now due to Hurricane Ida. Multiple people have lost their lives, floodwaters and explosions have leveled homes, cars have washed away and thousands of people remain without power across the state.
It’s important for us here in New Jersey who were lucky enough to escape the worst of the storm to help those who did not. That’s why here at Mount Salem Kitchen, we feel compelled to gear this weekend’s Pairing to those in need – just like we did five years ago, when an earthquake flattened much of central Italy.
Our Pairing this Sunday, Sept. 5 at 12 p.m. will feature Creole and Cajun cuisine, including gumbo spread on toasts, shrimp and grits, petit crab cakes with rémoulade sauce, maque choux and red beans and rice for $45 per person. That includes three ample pours of our wines, a live demonstration in our outdoor kitchen of the making of these iconic dishes and recipes to take home.
One hundred percent of our net proceeds (after our out-of-pocket costs) will be donated to the American Red Cross it works to assist victims of Hurricane Ida in New Jersey. We will also collect donations all weekend by cash or credit card for the Red Cross and forward 100% of the proceeds to it. You can also donate directly at the link above, if you wish.
Join us on Sunday, Sept. 5 at noon for $45 per person for our Pairing at 54 Mt Salem Rd, Pittstown. Reserve your spot (no walk-ins, please) by contacting us at 908-735-9359 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
