Burgers and Brew Week, commences on Monday, September 21st at 1pm with a special cooking show featuring Celebrity Chef, and Northern NJ local, Jesse Jones.

Chef Jesse is an award-winning chef whose passion for cooking was inspired by his experience as a child growing up in the south with a family who always demanded the best in home cooking. He is known for taking southern comfort fare to a new level with added French culinary expertise. Chef Jesse's famous lamb recipe was recently featured in Toques in Black: 101 Black Chefs in America, published in 2019 by The Chefs Connection.

Sponsored by RWJ Barnabas Clara Maass Medical Center and RWJ Barnabas Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Chef Jesse will prepare his signature burger over a charcoal grill. Prepared with USDA Certified Angus Beef on a toasted brioche bun, the burger is topped with crispy smoked pork belly, port wine onions, spicy peppadew mayo, and sharp cheddar. It will be enjoyed with a side of homemade hand cut fries and basil aioli.
