From Captain Shirley Grill:

It was a stormy, wet night on Tuesday so we invited our MESH guests into Shomrei early to provide sanctuary from the storm! We had a full house with 24 guests and 5 takeaway dinners. The evening was brightened by Chef Arden Epstein’s fare, in colors of red and green…rather spring like! Appetizer was fresh cherries and nuts–can be seen in forefront of the picture; Main Course was Asian Chicken Salad with cashews and mandarin slices; string beans in a mustard dressing and a hot roll; Desert was Strawberries and homemade chocolate bark–yummm! And all the guests received a goodie bag with a power bar and clementine for a late night snack or breakfast!

From Captain Shirley Grill:

Tuesday night was a cold and rainy night–not your typical spring evening!  Because of the weather, we let our guests in early rather than have them wait outside in the rain.  We were fortunate that the meal was a spinoff from our wonderful Syrian meal the prior Friday, so much of the work was reheating and cutting and chopping for a fresh green salad and fruit salad.

Moving fast at MESH!!

Report from Captain Shirley Grill:

Our first Carol Starr Mesh Café of 2018 opened on a very wet and dark rainy night—and brightened everyone’s evening with deep orange colors and tangy flavors.  It may have been miserable outside, but inside it was a flaming fall festival of color—with a little pumpkin spice ala Starbucks!

From Captain Shirley Grill:

The awesome team of Chefs Lynne Kurzweil and Aileen Grossberg ensured that we had a spectacular Pesach meal for our 22 guests on Tuesday, April 3.  Aileen planned the meal and Lynne cooked all Monday, so everything was prepared for the small kitchen team of Aileen, Yael Webber (Shomrei’ s own JLC teacher on vacation!) and yours truly–serving as kitchen help and captain.  We were supported by the MESH team led by Adrienne, with servers Siobhan, Rebecca, Joe and Joe (security.)  And our custodian Kevin did kitchen cleanup.  Continue reading

From Captain Shirley Grill

Another successful dinner.  We served a full house–22 adults and three children. The meal was prepared by Jennifer Moses, who delivered a lovely fish dinner. Dinner started with Carrot Ginger soup and challah–a great way to warm up on a chilly evening. The main was Tilapia filets over a bed of rice and a side of brussel sprouts. Desert was homemade apple sauce and cookies.
