In celebration of the Super Bowl, Kings Food Markets in Old Greenwich will hold a food drive along with welcoming Chef Rui Correia of Douro Restaurant on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Mr. Correia will perform live cooking demonstrations, teaching consumers how to make unique and delicious recipes for their Super Bowl parties. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to sample several of Kings’ products and offerings, as well as pick up orders from Kings Football Catering Menu.
“At Kings, we like to offer our consumers not only fresh ingredients but also a unique experience,” said Judy Spires, president and CEO of Kings. “We look forward to hosting Chef Rui at our Old Greenwich store and hope shoppers leave with delicious treats and some inspiration for their Super Bowl meals.”
Mr. Correia, who has been featured several times on the Today Show, has worked with culinary legends such as Bobby Flay, Danny Meyers and Alfred Portale. While his primary focus is Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine, he has been known to tailor his menu to the tastebuds of Americans, offering a unique combination of ingredients and flavors as he prepares the perfect Super Bowl crowd pleasers.
Throughout the weekend, Kings will also have samples of many unique products and offerings, including Calavo Guacamole and Hummus, Rosa Mexicano Salsa, Skinny Pop Popcorn, Tyrrells Potato Crisps, Terrapin Ridge Farms Dips and Tonnino Tuna.
In addition to sampling salsa, famed New York City restaurant Rosa Mexicano will be selling Rosa’s New Mexican Table Cookbook, which features 125 vibrant recipes that bring fresh, authentic Mexican flavors to the table. Consumers can also enter to win Rosa Mexicano’s Dine Out or Stay In Mexican Style contest, which offers a chance to win dinner for two at one of their three New York City locations, as well as their signature salsa and a Kings gift card.
To round out the weekend, as part of Kings’ Act Against Hunger initiative, Kings Old Greenwich will host its first Super Bag for Super Bowl food drive event. During this food drive, consumers can purchase a “Super Bag,” which contains some of the most-needed food items. Each bag purchased will be donated to Neighbor to Neighbor, a local non-profit that collects clothing and food for people in need in Greenwich, Stamford and Port Chester.
The Super Bag for Super Bowl will retail for approximately $10 and consumers have the option of either buying a pre-packed bag or creating their own bag with items they’d like to purchase.
