On the evening of January 26, the talented culinary students of Red Bank Regional High School assumed the responsibilities for cooking, serving and seating restaurant patrons, at the third annual Hope is Delicious Dinner fundraiser to benefit the JBJ Soul Kitchen.

A tossed romaine salad dressed with red wine vinaigrette accompanied the main course of braised boneless chicken thighs in a shallot wine sauce, with a side dish of Mediterranean style couscous and oven roasted cauliflower. The pièce de résistance was an Italian mascarpone espresso chocolate chip ice box pie.
