Recipes from the Jersey Bites Cooking Stage

Julie Hartigans cooking demo

What an amazing time we had on the Jersey Bites Cooking Stage at the New Jersey Home Show. Seven chefs brought their A game and wowed the audiences throughout the weekend with info-packed cooking demos and delicious tastings. We had so many requests for the recipes shared over the three-day event that we promised to follow up with a mega recipe post, and here it is. If you were unable to attend this year, I hope you enjoy this recap and will give some of these recipes a try. They were all big winners!
