Mary Mahoney and Black River Caviar
Give HOPE this Holiday Season

Mary Mahoney and Black River Caviar give back to Hope For Depression Foundation through the Holiday Season

Black River Caviar and Worth Avenue’s Mary Mahoney have joined forces to support Hope for Depression Research Foundation this holiday season,  following a highly successful kick off for the upcoming inaugural Palm Beach Race of Hope.  The kick off event was hosted by HDRF Founder and Chair Audrey Gruss and co-chair Scott Snyder, at Sant Ambroeus last Friday, December 7th.

A festive cocktail for over 200 guests was followed by a by-invitation only dinner for committee members, patrons and sponsors.  Once guests were seated, Audrey and Scott welcomed them, thanked them for their support, and introduced the evening’s top sponsor, Graham Gaspard, CEO of Black River Caviar.  The guests savored a Black River Caviar sampler of: Tradition Oscietra with toasted brioche and creme fraiche, Royale Oscietra with quail egg and creme fraiche, and Imperial Oscietra on blini and mashed potato, paired with prosecco. Each guest was gifted a mother of pearl caviar spoon and black velvet pouch to take home.

Guests were invited to place orders and promised 50% of proceeds from orders placed that night would be donated to HDRF;  Over $8,000 was raised for the cause that evening, and inquiries continue to come in for orders.

Due to the overwhelming response from locals supporting this great cause, Mary Mahoney store on Worth Avenue has offered to donate 25% of proceeds from orders placed to Hope for Depression.  “This will make it a whole lot easier for locals to purchase on the spot,” announced Graham Gaspard.

These orders can only be placed personally by calling Mary Mahoney at 561.655.8288

About Hope For Depression Foundation

Audrey Gruss founded HDRF in April 2006 in memory of her mother Hope, who struggled with clinical depression. Today, HDRF is the leading nonprofit organization focused solely on depression research.  Over 350 million people annually struggle with depression globally, but despite its prevalence, depression is still misunderstood, underfunded and under-researched. The mission of the HDRF is to fund cutting-edge neuroscience research into the origins, medical diagnosis, new treatments, and prevention of depression and its related mood disorders, including bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder and suicide. To date, HDRF has provided more than $30-million through over 125 grants for accelerated breakthrough depression research that promises to lead to new and better medications and treatments.

Meat Market Holiday Highlights
New York State of Mind New Years

Tis the Season for… Stone Crabs of Course!

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Christmas Day or bring in the New Year than digging in to one or two of Meat Market’s colossal stone crabs!  I’ve been eyeing their perfectly cracked over the charts-sized claws since October, and now with the excuse of the Holidays, I will claw myself to 2019!

STEAK SUNDAYS at MEAT MARKET are back!!

Back by popular demand, this coming Sunday, May 20th  will signal the return of Meat Market’s wildly popular Signature Steak Sunday. Every Sunday this summer, you can enjoy a selection of Executive Chef/Co-Owner Sean Brasel’s Signature Steaks at half price. Options include 16 ounce Chicago Prime New York (full or half); 12 ounce filet mignon (full or half); 16 ounce Prime Ribeye; the Meat Market steak – 16 ounce Prime Picanha with Habanero Chimichurri (full or half); or the Creative Steak of the Day.

My favorite is the prime rib-eye topped with either seared foie-gras or roasted prime bone marrow….. but of course you can choose from other succulent additions such as a 6 ounce lobster tail; Oscar-style with blue crab and béarnaise; and black truffle butter. Signature Steak Sunday will be offered to guests in the dining room, as well as those sitting at the bar and lounge.  Not to be combined with any other offers and not available for to-go orders.

Meat Market, located at 191 Bradley Place in Palm Beach, serves dinner nightly. For reservations, please call (561) 354-9800. For more information, visit www.meatmarket.net.

Black River Caviar & Schramsberg Vineyards
A Marriage Made in Napa

Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards

This fall brought us a match made in heaven, or in this case, Napa: Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards.   Napa Valley Entertaining is a beautifully illustrated table book showcasing Napa Valley gatherings, as well as serving as a hostess’s guide to adding a touch of wine country flair to entertaining. The author Blakesley Chappellet, with photographer Briana Marie, chronicles décor, recipes, and perfect wine pairings that make Napa Valley unforgettable. Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards are among the perfect partnerships highlighted.napa entertaining with black river caviar

“All of Schramsberg’s sparkling wines pair wonderfully with Black River Caviar,” says Graham C. Gaspard, President of Black River Caviar. Their Brut Rosé, however, is his personal favorite. Schramsberg brilliantly crafts the Rosé from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; they handpick as well as meticulously press the grapes in order to provide the best possible taste. Furthermore, the wine gives just the right amount of acidity to compliment Black River’s equally high-quality, and flavorful, sturgeon roe.
