A sure sign that spring has arrived, the Rumson Kitchen Tour returns! Hosted by The Rumson Education Foundation and proudly sponsored by 1st Constitution Bank, the 2014 Rumson Kitchen Tour will feature seven beautiful homes and their stunning kitchens on Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Inspired tablescapes by talented designers and stunning floral arrangements by creative local florists will highlight each kitchen. Tour guests will enjoy sampling a variety of delicious tastings prepared by local chefs and fine food purveyors including: Fresh, Lusty Lobster, Ama Ristorante, Salt Creek Grill, Cups & Cakes, Freshica’s Juice Bar, Gracie & The Dudes, Et Al Fine Food & Events, and restaurateur Marilyn Schlossbach. Tour guests will also have the opportunity to meet the expert designers, architects, and builders who crafted each of the featured homes. Hosting this highly anticipated fundraising event would not be possible without the generosity and support of the local community, businesses, and benefactors, with very special recognition going to 1st Constitution Bank as the 2014 Kitchen Tour’s Major Sponsor. 1st Constitution Bank demonstrated their commitment to the local community they recently joined with the opening of five new bank branches in the Two River area by eagerly lending their support to the Rumson Education Foundation in this very important fundraising event. A very special thanks to Mario Venancio, top agent with Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate, for his generosity serving as the 2014 Rumson Kitchen Tour Directional Sponsor & Design NJ Magazine for their invaluable support of the tour through the years.
