Bryan Gregg, Chef and Owner of Escape Montclair and a leader in the New Jersey local food movement, will welcome Chef Todd Villani of Carlstadt’s Terre à Terre for a five-course charity dinner on Wednesday March 25.
In the Escape kitchen, Gregg and Villani will craft a locally-sourced, multi-course dinner to benefit cancer research and treatment in New Jersey, a cause important to Chef Gregg, a cancer survivor. The tasting dinner will give guests an opportunity to bring their own wines to pair with the courses. The team at Montclair’s Amanti Vino is also available to make recommendations based on the evening’s menu.
“Chef Villani is as passionate as I am about the local-sourcing of ingredients and we support many of the same farmers and purveyors. This dinner will illustrate the wealth of local products and ingredients we both enjoy cooking with and sharing with our guests,” says Chef Gregg. “While it’s great fun to collaborate with fellow chefs at our Escape dinners, the goal of these charity-driven events is to increase our contributions to support cancer treatment and research in New Jersey and I’m confident our March event will again surpass our previous donations,” added Gregg.
The charity dinner menu includes scallops, monkfish, dry-aged beef, and other delicious course with a sweet ending of a chocolate, hazelnut, and orange brioche dessert.
