New Day New Way Soirée

On January 15, 2016, Kitchens for Good, Catering and Events, in collaboration with the City of Encinitas, was proud to sponsor the New Day New Way Soirée at the Encinitas Community Center. This free event was to promote the new healthy meals that Kitchens for Good is providing daily for seniors in the Encinitas community.

Five hundred guests including Lisa Schaefer with the Encinitas City Council and Supervisor Dave Roberts were all served tasty bites prepared by our chefs in our in-house kitchen located in The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation. We highlighted local farmers, including Coastal Roots Farm and the Farm Lab, which provided fresh produce for our appetizers. We featured some delicious dishes that exemplify the gourmet and tasty meals that we provide in our daily lunches.  The menu included various food stations that comprised of a shredded baby lettuce and kale salad with carrot, cucumber, radish, tomato; a composed salmon dish with citrus glazed salmon atop of sautéed Swiss chard with herbed brown rice and quinoa; a stir-fry station with chicken, tofu, and assorted veggies.

Lining up for our chef’s creations!
