About 15 years ago I first became affiliated with Meals on Wheels Delaware when asked to participate in their Celebrity Chef's Brunch while chef at Deep Blue. Over those years, it's given me immense pleasure and personal satisfaction to be affiliated with this organization. I have met innumerable good friends, shared some great laughs and memories, cooked in the homes of some wonderful people, drank some amazing wines, and cooked some really great food. I never dreamed all that fun would actually equate to raising millions of dollars to help provide home-bound seniors in Delaware with hot, nutritious meals. It must be how The Boss feels when he does a benefit concert! Everyone wins.
But, that's only half the story. Now in its 5th year, the Annual Stock Up for Seniors event teams Meals on Wheels Delaware with the warehouses of luxury cookware brands EmileHenry, Rösle, Duralex, Mauviel 1830, and Lékué located in New Castle, Delaware. The weekend warehouse sale gives Delawareans a chance to stock up on kitchen and cookware at deep discounts while the good people of Emile Henry USA donate proceeds to MOW Delaware. Another win-win.
On the evening of Dec. 6, 2012, shoppers will have an opportunity to shop exclusively and get first pick of the sale items, which continues through Sunday, December 9. A mere $25 (which also goes to MOW) gives you this amazing privilege. And, just to show you we care, I'll be on hand preparing all sorts of delicious appetizers and snacks for you to feast on while you shop. I'll demonstrate a classic risotto with locally foraged mushrooms, parsnips and Winter Black Truffles. Or, how about a simmering pot of Fall Squash and Apple Bisque? Got that, too.
This is an event that, like M.O.W., is becoming a true Delaware tradition. But, get your tickets today and get there early, because this event sells out fast!
