Sunday, February 21, 1:30pm.
Unitarian Society, East Brunswick


Guest Chef: Jay Chai, Chef-Owner of Pandan Room that serves Thai and Indonesian Food
TOpO Vietnamese Restaurant; both establishments are located in Hackettstown, NJ.

Growing up in a rural village on the island of Borneo, Jay started cooking at an early age
with homegrown ingredients from the family garden. Back with new recipes from a recent
trip back home, Jay’s demonstration will focus on the culinary techniques and flavors
of Thailand with a special focus on mushrooms.

During breaks in Jay’s demonstration when samples of the dishes are being served,
Marc Grobman and Frank Marra will once again be auctioning mushroom-related items.

This event is FREE and is open to NJMA members only and pre-registration is required
(space is limited). To register, please contact Igor Safonov (njmycomember@gmail.com).
If you can help with prepping and/or serving food, setting up and/or cleaning up,
please contact Jim Richards (jimrich17@icloud.com)
