On the Grid: Local Green Pub Features JPM
|Monday, 11 July 2011 18:53|
Around the time we redesigned our website, we tried to focus more on developing one of our real strengths -- weddings. So we were thrilled when the local monthly Grid magazine hit us up last month for some scoop on sustainable weddings.
JPM was featured in Grid's current August Weddings Issue.
Well-known local food blogger (and partner in the soon-to-open Federal Donuts) Felicia D'Ambrosio's piece on tips to make weddings more green outlined JPM's sustainable practices, including photos of decor designed for our favorite weddings.
If Grid isn't on your radar, it should be -- if not merely for D'Ambrosio's regular food commentary and insight.
Her work also appears in this week's Flying Kite, and regularly in other local outlets.
Here's an excerpt of the Grid article:
With so much excellent grub being produced all around our city, building your wedding menu with seasonal foods has never been easier—or more delicious. Jennifer McCafferty holds sustainability as the core value of JPM Catering, based out of a Manayunk kitchen and serving the city and Main Line.
Biodegradable or reusable containers and service ware, along with thorough recycling and composting, means McCafferty offers nearly no-waste events featuring seasonal dishes sourced within 100 miles of Philadelphia.
“We get all of our meats from Lancaster Farm Fresh,” she says. “Grass-fed meat and butter is so much more environmentally friendly… clients win with that—and it tastes so much better.”
