Jam out with Mambo 64 and Conant Valley Jams


Our Latin Twist blogger and Mambo 64 restaurateur-chef Arlen Gargagliano and prize-winning jam-maker Margery Schiffman of Conant Valley Jams will team up this Sunday, December 15th for a Jam Brunch and Sale at Mambo 64 in Tuckahoe.

Mambo 64, a vibrant new addition to the culinary and bar scene in Tuckahoe, does a fresh twist of Latin fusion cuisine from more than a dozen countries. The menu and cocktails reflect the richness and variety of Latin America and the Caribbean. To celebrate Sunday’s collaborative event, Arlen and her chef de cuisine, Stephanie Landis, will be serving a special arepa, Colombian corn cake, topped with Margery’s Mango-Key Lime Marmalade. (That’s the photo above. Delishy looking!)

Schiffman, who is a regular at the Pleasantville and John Jay Farmer’s Markets, will have several flavors of handmade, low sugar jams available for purchase, including a special batch of the Mango-Key Lime and Ginger Marmalade. She will also have Local Bosc Pear, Organic Raspberry, the Ever-popular BluBarb, as well as a Mambo 64-ONLY batch of Pinot Noir-Plum, which uses organically grown local Westchester plums and a New York State Pinot Noir from the Finger Lakes to achieve an a taste that works with everything from duck to peanut butter!

Sounds like a great opportunity for stocking stuffers, gift baskets and hostess gifts! All the info on Mambo 64 on its website here. And Conant Valley Jams here.
