Smith & Wollensky Partner with Clarke: Mac N Cheese Recipe

Recipes Steak & Wine Chat   

At Smith & Wollensky we are all committed to giving back during this time. With that, our team is looking at ways to continue community outreach and work with local partners,  like Clarke – New England’s Official Sub-Zero, Wolf & Cove Showroom and Test Kitchen.

Clarke has been a cornerstone of the appliance industry in New England. For 50 years, Clarke has grown to be the nation’s most exemplary distributor with three award-winning showrooms (known as the region’s ultimate kitchen resource centers), a Culinary Center teaching cooking to homeowners throughout New England, a nationally known appliance service company and a network of stellar independent retail dealers.

In a time of crisis we wanted to work with local partners to showcase that we are now, more than ever, committed to working as one team and staying in touch with our guests and customers no matter what. So we thought, who better to partner with to create our favorite Smith & Wollensky dishes during this crisis, in the Clarke Showroom and Test Kitchen and bring them into your homes and kitchens via video!  Thank you to the team at Clarke for continued support and assistance!  We’ll all get thru this TOGETHER!
