True love.

Update: The event has been cancelled for extenuating circumstances and is postponed until further notice.

Y’all know how I feel about pizza. I’m pretty infatuated with my home state of New Jersey and its produce, too. I’m excited to be a part of an event, which will bring these things together on September 20 at Razza Pizza Artigianale in Jersey City. I’ll be pairing local beer and Jersey-inspired cocktails with Razza’s pizzas, which will be made from locally grown, hand-harvested rye. The rye was grown exclusively for Razza at Cedar Hill Farm in Middletown and toppings will be culled from Ralston Farm in Mendham. All dishes will be vegetarian.

Booking is obligatory and you can reserve your place over on Eventbrite. Here’s what we’re serving:

The menu wil include:
-Razza’s amazing bread & butter
-Family-style salad
-Sampling of 4 different pizzas
-Fruit-based dessert
-4 local beers and Jersey-inspired rye cocktails — see public transport options below:)

Hope to see you there!
