MENDHAM, NJ - As the fourth of July is upon us, state parks closed, beaches and highways over crowded, Kings of Mendham’s Grill and Chill event was the place to be, with no wait.
The sun was hot, but the grill was hotter. Special guest, Chef Jesse Jones, known for his French twist on southern cooking, presented a roasted pork panini beginning with fresh ciabatta, rubbed with
A L’Olivier, French extra virgin olive oil. Piacenti Tuscan pork loin and fresh grilled vegetables made up the between the bread. The finish combined Dalamatia Fig Spread blended with Dijon mustard, the perfect blend of sweet and heat.
Inside, Chatham’s Chef Terri McGovern, of Market to Table shared a fresh corn salad made with corn, tomatoes, red onions, jalapeno peppers, a touch of lime and finished with real smoked olive oil. A true summer side that can stand up to any grilled main dish and it was as flavorful as it was colorful.
Just outside the bakery section, Eileen Maher of Realish Food, plated a grilled peach with cream dessert finished with marcona almonds and A L’Olivier raspberry fruit vinegar. The flavors perfectly balanced and presented beautifully.
