Hearth ’n Kettle was “Taste of the Town” on FOX 25 Zip Trips

A couple of weeks ago on Friday, August 24th, it was a sunny day in Carver, Massachusetts—perfect weather for a visit from FOX 25’s “Zip Trips”. I don’t know the exact number of people crowded on the lawn of the Town Hall that morning, but I would venture to say it was well over two hundred. Despite the intensifying heat, there was an excited buzz in the air… everyone turned out to catch a glimpse of the FOX 25 news anchors, to meet the sponsors and get a chance TO BE SEEN ON TV!

Hearth ’n Kettle and our parent company, the Catania Hospitality Group, sponsored the “Fan of the Week” this summer, providing gift cards for winners at each of the 15 Zip Trip stops. On this particular day, H’n K was also showcased as the “Taste of the Town.”

Mary Sue Ganshaw, our Supervisor of Training, and Lou Massi, Director of Operations, accompanied me to the Plymouth Hearth ’n Kettle early in the morning, where we cooked and packed up special dishes to display at this event. Our table made everyone’s mouths water with plates of our homemade Summer Berry French Toast, Nut-Crusted Cod with Mango Salsa, Summer Berry Salad made with fresh organic greens, our popular Triple Decker sandwich the “Ultimate Reuben” and more. Joe Allen, general manager of the John Carver Inn & Spa/Plymouth Hearth ’n Kettle was assisted by managers Rebecca Nydam and Scott Hudson-Bryant, who treated the hungry spectators to our mini bacon-cheddar scones - tasty little versions of the scones on our breakfast menu.

When news co-anchor, Gene Lavanchy and news commentator, Doug ‘VB’ Goudie interviewed me and Mary Sue, we talked about the food we brought and reported that it was a busy summer. Watch the full interview here and see additional photos.

The morning was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the warm reception we received from the Zip Trip Staff and the Fans in Carver! Maybe next time you see us interviewed on TV, it will be by Anthony Bourdain on “No Reservations”!
