Russ & Daughters‘ annual Herring Pairing Party is always a legendary night of delicious fun.
The New Catch Holland Herring is a piece of gastronomic heaven, a fabulous buttery and mild matjes (young) herring unlike any other, due to its exceptionally high and healthy omega-3 fat content. Many compare its buttery texture and delicate flavor to the finest sashimi.
Once a year, the herring in the North Sea reach their optimal condition during a 4-5 week season. In Holland, the start of this season is a national holiday with the first barrel of herring into port traditionally auctioned off for charity.
After that, these prized delicacies hit the market as the famed ”Hollandse Nieuwe” — ”New Catch Holland Herring.” Russ & Daughters is a direct importer, and receives herring of the highest quality.
During the event guests had the opportunity to see Russ & Daughter’s newest location, which is made up of their bakery, kitchens, nationwide shipping hub, and a retail appetizing counter. OutSnapped was honored to be involved in this year’s festivities held in the newly renovated Building 77 at Brooklyn Navy Yard!
