What happens when you take a James Beard nominated chef and our favorite food delivery service in New York City and combine their efforts together for an amazing cause? You get the powerful duo of Chef Dan Kluger and Maple, creating a limited menu to raise a ton of money for Cookies For Kids Cancer. Available until this coming Friday, Maple will donate a portion of each special item sale to this cause, to coincide with the annual Chef’s for Kids Cancer Benefit, which took place back on February 23rd.
We have profiled Maple before on Manhattan Digest, and they are the real deal when it comes to quality food delivery from some of the top chefs in the world, sent right to your front door. The menu has been up for a short period of time, and they have already raised over $10,000 for this remarkable charity. Dan Kluger is a force to be reckoned with in the culinary world. On top of his James Beard nomination two years ago, he has also been in the front lines at incredible establishments from ABC Kitchen to The Core Club, just to name a few. He has also been featured in several reputable publications from The New York Times to Food & Wine, and now Manhattan Digest. Yay.
The concept for this is simple. Over the next two days, order the following items from Maple’s illustrious menu, and you will have done your part to raise money for this fantastic cause. The menu items are listed as below:
Maple x Dan Kluger Limited-Edition Menu
Ginger Braised Chicken w/ Roasted Broccoli, Sunflower Pesto, Quinoa & Almonds
Brussels Sprouts Salad w/ Garlic & Lime Shrimp, Avocado Puree, Diced Green Apple, Mustard Dressing
Red Wine-Braised Pot Roast w/ Celery Root, Sage-Roasted Kabocha Squash, Sautéed Broccolini, Pistachio Vinaigrette
Arctic Char & Root Vegetable Bowl w/ Roasted Beets, Turnips, Chicory, Pickled Fennel, Oregano Vinaigrette
