October OTR Recap and Photos

October OTR Recap and Photo Album

Were you at our October On The Road networking event? Tag yourself in the Facebook photo album and share your pictures as well. (How is it possible that the Cultinary Family Farm twins were not captured on camera??)

The staff and space of Cross Keys Brewing were wonderfully welcoming and the room was packed. Thank goodness the rain held off because the crowd was spilling out the door. Not that rain would have kept anyone from lining up for dinner from Red's Rolling Restaurant.

Culinary Family Farms Black Garlic was an experience. When they walk you through the flavors like a wine tasting you know this is something special. Superfoods was already using black garlic in their recipes and were excited to meet a NJ source. The samples of Superfood's veggie burgers, taco filling, and "forbidden banana bread" are all vegan and amazingly delicious. Paul is an experienced chef that has already brought products to Costco and it shows. We got to learn a little more about the history behind the spring rolls of Carey's Gourmet and their established following. 

Sundial Vegan Chicken Wings needed no introduction after our Food Forum podcast with Jessica Schwabach, co-founder and CEO of Sundial Foods. Ever the scientists looking for improvements, the Sundial team came right to the event from working on their production line. The sauces on top were Aaji’s Tomato Lonsa and Dirty Jerz BBQ!

You never know who you are going to meet or what creative combinations. We saw more than one of our attendees go home with samples from another, already talking about collaborations and new recipes.

This networking and tasting event happened because a member like YOU made it happen. Want to have an event near you? Have a suggestion for a larger location? Reach out to [email protected].

Special thanks to this trio for a great night! Sponsor Bill Cornelius of M&T Bank, organizer Fred Kaplan of Stony Hill Advisors, and speaker Larry Walker of Balford Foods who shared some of his experiences and advice for new food businesses.
