“There comes a moment on a journey when something sweet, something irresistible and charming as wine raised to thirsty lips, wells up in the traveler’s being.” –Patrick MacGill
It is the start of fall, and that means a few of our favorite things. Cold weather, beautiful food, and fall festivals.
We are excited to announce our annual Food and Wine week.
Food and Wine week is at the end of September this year, and we are so excited for you to join us at all of our member restaurants. Starting September 27th through October 2nd, we are going to have the most incredible kickoff to fall yet!
This year will be special. Our member restaurants are partnering with local wineries and creating tantalizing menus that will capture your heart and taste buds.
Our kickoff party will be on Sunday the 27th. We are having complimentary wine tastings at each of our restaurants, and we’d love to see you there.
These events would not be possible without our dedicated Chefs and staff, and our generous sponsors. We are thankful to have two sponsors that are also great friends of SJ Hot Chefs.
Rastelli, and Bovio.
We wanted to take a moment and highlight these two outstanding companies, the work they do, and their role in our community.
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” –J.R.R. Tolkien
Family owned and operated, Rastelli is dedicated to providing premium meat, seafood and gourmet gifts to their customers. From humble beginnings, starting with only a small storefront in South New Jersey, to now being a multi-faceted industry leader. Rastelli specializes in processing, fulfillment, and global consolidation. Rastelli has become one of the only vertically integrated premium food companies in the United States.
The Rastelli Difference
SJ Hot Chefs has worked with Rastelli for years because they are simply the best. Their premium beef, seafood and everything else they offer, have become culinary staples at our member restaurants and countless others in the US and around the world.
You cannot fake excellence
Working directly with domestic farmers and fishermen from all around the world, Rastelli takes ownership of the process so they can cut down the amount of transfers, travel and handlers for their food products. Flash frozen at the peak of freshness, their premium meats, seafood retain more nutrients and flavor than other leading products.
We are beyond thrilled to have Rastelli as a sponsor for our upcoming Food and Wine week. They pride themselves on family values, superior products, and living locally.
Since 1974, Bovio has provided New Jersey with all of their Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Insulation needs.
It has been over 40 years since Bovio first opened their doors, and they are not showing any signs of slowing down.
Bovio made a name for themselves based on their dedication to hard work and their insistence on ‘doing it all.
Small Town Heroes
Bovio’s employees have always called New Jersey home, and we love that about them. Their passion is intertwined with ours, to love our community and serve its people.
You do not build a four-decade influence in the community overnight. Being a local business, word of mouth is how Bovio grew their brand. With three generations of family members working at Bovio, they have kept these ideals at the forefront of their operations. Putting family first has allowed Bovio to continue to be one of Southern New Jersey’s leading HVAC Contractors and air conditioner companies.
You are bound to find members of Bovio’s staff in our member restaurants when they are not working. We are thrilled they are sponsoring Food and Wine week this year.
We are excited to kick off fall with friends and family. Join us at one of our many locations for Food and Wine week this year. Try some great wine and food, and help us welcome in another great holiday season!
