This year marks the 40th anniversary of Hunterdon Hospice and we are excited to celebrate at our upcoming event, “A Culinary Affair” goes…..German! On Monday, September 23, 2019, the Hunterdon Medical Center Auxiliary and Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation will host ‘A Culinary Affair’ at The Farmhouse from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.  The Farmhouse, (formerly The Grand Colonial), is located at 86 Rte. 173 in Hampton, NJ (between exists 11 & 12 off Rte. 78).

The event will feature food tastings from local area restaurants, wineries and breweries. Many restaurants are bringing specialty dishes made exclusively for this event. These dishes include: Braised Short Ribs over Spaetzle, Beef Sauerbraten, Spicy German Beer Mustard Brussel Sprouts with Charred Pork Flat Iron, Kale and Apple Pork Rouladen, Toasted Onion & Poppy Spaetzle with bacon and chive, Artisan Knockwurst with Apple-bacon braised Sauerkraut, Warm German Potato Salad, Black Forest Shooters, Apple Streusel Bars, German Chocolate Cupcakes, Pfeffernusse, Apple Strudel, Linzers and Oktoberfest beer Jello shots.

Some of the participating restaurants have a very personal connection to Hospice, as family members have used their services.  Other area restaurants have been touched by the good works done by Hunterdon Hospice and want to give back to their community.

Mark Drabich, Owner, Metropolitan Seafood & Gourmet Co. said   “Hospice provided expertly, extreme care in a genuinely angelic fashion.  The nurses were like a Sherpa guiding our family as we were losing our father.” Erin McPherson, Matt’s Red Rooster Grill also mentioned,“Hospice often knew what we needed even when we didn’t.  They took great care of dad, and were wonderful to us and certainly did more than their job with their genuine kindness.”

Mia Emerson, Owner, 15 Landsdowne Catering said“Hospice gave us an incredible gift, they helped us find humor in everyday situations and allowed us to experience life and the moments of beauty.”When asked why this is a cause he supports, Jonas Jonas Gold, Owner, 55 Main, said “The community has always supported me, and this is my way of giving back and supporting them.”

The featured entertainment this year will be The Adlers Band. Some of the restaurants, wineries and breweries participating in this year’s event include: 15 Landsdowne Catering, 55 Main, Black River Roasters, Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse, Clinton Atrium Café, Descendants Brewing at The Ship Inn, Hunterdon Brewing Co., Maddalena’s Catering, Matt’s Red Rooster Grill, Metropolitan Seafood & Gourmet, Old Croton Bar & Grill, Shoprite of Hunterdon County, Stanton Ridge Country Club, The Farmhouse, and The Ryland Inn.
