Recipe contest winners announced!!!

Spirits Unlimited Middletown and Chef James Conroy is proud to announce the winners of our first-ever recipe contest.

First: Dominick Malgeri (Pasta with shrimp and wine)
Second: Wendy Soby (Red wine chicken)

Spirits Unlimited Middletown invites all customers and residents to the award ceremony scheduled for Saturday, October 3 at 11 a.m. The event will be held at the store, 853 Route 35 North, Middletown. There's plenty of space to park, and the landmark is the Circus clown. For further questions and directions, call the store (732) 957 9700.

Chef James Conroy will present the awards to the winners at the beginning of the event. In addition, all participants will also be given a Certificate of Participation.

At the ceremony, Chef James will prepare the two winning recipes and serve it to guests present. He will also discuss some of the other interesting recipes that were submitted during the month.

"Overall, it was a very rewarding experience going through all the unique recipes that I received," Chef James said. "It was heartening to see the creative side of people and I thank them for taking the time to send us their recipe."

And that's not all. Event Organizer Somdatta Sengupta will be present to talk to each participant and record their experience on camera. Each interview will then be posted on this blog, giving participants an opportunity to share their recipe and experience with the entire Spirits Unlimited Middletown community.

Manager of Liquor Operations Stuart Keats said he is happy to see the enthusiasm of Spirits Unlimited Middletown customers. "We are a family-owned operation. To us, our customers are the most important part of that family," he said.

Keats said he is looking forward to a fun-filled morning at Spirits Unlimited Middletown. "There's going to be food and fun, and after the award ceremony I invite everyone to take a look around our huge collection of wines and fine spirits."

Store Manager Ray Kimble said he anticipates having a great crowd tomorrow. "We are ready to host our first-ever award ceremony here at the store," he said. "We have made all the arrangements. All you need to do is come out and enjoy the cooking and tasting."

He specifically invited customers to check out the store's growing collection of fall beers and join in two ongoing raffles and win more prizes in the near future.
