Summer time in New Jersey evokes images of corn, tomatoes, berries and cantaloupes. For the first time ever, prior to the 2014 SJ Hot Chefs Farm to Fork event, the public is being invited to help harvest the crops.

Families can come to Duffield’s Farm Market (280 Chapel Heights Rd, Sewell) from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16 to assist in picking peppers, green beans and eggplant.

From July 20-26, the harvested vegetables will be incorporated into the menu prepared by all restaurants participating in the SJ Hot Chef’s Farm to Fork week-long event. All told, 45 eateries will feature a summertime four-course offering for $35 (some offering a three course for $25). 

As an added interactive element the public is being asked to participate in the “Littlest Chefs” contest.

SJ Hot Chefs are encouraging people to submit pictures of their kids with their culinary creations online by tagging SJ HotChefs on Facebook or using the hashtag #SJLittleChefs on Twitter.

One winner will receive a $100 gift card and their child’s dish will be featured at one of the participating restaurants during Farm to Fork. For more details or to enter contest visit us Facebook.com/SJHotChefs.
