The Room at Cedar Grove in Lewes hosts a delicious four-course meal on April 15 and 16 to benefit local nonprofit Paul Kares.

Enjoy a night of live music and a delicious four-course Italian dinner at The Room at Cedar Grove in Lewes this April to support local non-profit Paul Kares.  

On Thursday, April 15 and Friday, April 16, musician Paul Cullen performs with Grammy-nominated Robert Randolph—founder of the Family Band—and cooks with James Beard-nominated Chef Jeff Michaud during a fundraising event for Paul Kares—a local non-profit to benefit Delmarva-area students who are interested in a music or culinary career.  

This $145 per person, four-course meal will feature not only an incredible live show, but a beef tartare with giardiniera, black olives and wheat crackers, followed by rigatoni with chicken liver, cippolini onion and sage. Then, there’s a Tomahawk pork chop with fennel rub, salsa rossa, plus a hazelnut crème anglaise with a candied orange for dessert.

Cullen, the founder of Paul Kares, developed his love of rock music and Italian cuisine while touring Europe with the classic rock band, Bad Company. Three decades later, he put down his bass and picked up his culinary knife, acoustic guitar and wine key, beginning his career as both a musician and chef in coastal Sussex County.   

For the past six years, Cullen has prepared in-home meals for more than 10,000 guests while also performing private concerts with Paul Cullen & Friends. Now, as owner of The Room at Cedar Grove, Paul’s Cullen-ary Company, Paul’s Kitchen, Unplugged and Uncorked, not to mention co-founder of Paul Kares with Jim Rivette, Cullen brings delicious cuisine and live entertainment to the First State.
