Schlossbach is inviting Jersey Shore foodies to escape the winter doldrums at
her February-19 cooking demonstration “Festive Entertaining with Italian
Cuisine” at her oceanfront restaurant Langosta Lounge. The
evening will feature a six-course dinner complemented by wine and cocktail
pairings. A portion of the “Cooking with
Marilyn” proceeds will be donated to the evening’s charity beneficiary, the
Junior League of Monmouth County.
“In addition to demonstrating how to create festive Italian dishes, the February cooking class will raise awareness and funds for the Junior League of Monmouth County, a nonprofit organization that works to empower girls to become confident women. As a self-taught chef, this organization holds a special place in my heart because it helps to engage girls, develop their potential and improve our community through the promotion of volunteerism and leadership,” commented Marilyn Schlossbach, proprietor of Langosta Lounge.
Kicking off at 6:00 p.m. at Langosta Lounge, February’s “Cooking with Marilyn and Friends” will begin with a cocktail reception. The demonstration will then take attendees on a culinary journey that includes grilled octopus, pizza two ways – caponata and burrata - , Meyer lemon and mascarpone gnocchi, and sabayon and pignoli brittle.
Tickets to “Cooking with Marilyn and Friends” are $65.00 per person and include the cooking demonstration, a six-course dinner, wine and cocktails; $10.00 from each ticket will be donated to the evening’s beneficiary. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. For further information or to reserve a ticket for “Cooking with Marilyn and Friends,” please call 732-455-3275.
