According to Jones, Adventure Kitchen has “aspirations to be your destination for curious cooks to have adventures with food”. Adventure Kitchen sells spices and prepared foods. In the summer, they sell ice pops and run a summer camp.
Because Adventure Kitchen gets its spices from across the globe, not all their spices are USDA Organic. The business still tries its best to provide the best quality ingredients for its customers.
“Some things are sustainably grown, or we try to make everything fair trade as much as possible,” Jones said. “So, it kind of varies, but we do a lot, a lot of research and homework to find the best quality ingredients and also to make sure that they’re all very, very responsibly sourced.”
Jones used to teach after-school cooking classes. She created recipes for the classes and decided to put them online, which lead to Adventure Kitchen’s creation.
10 percent of of the company’s profits go to food-related charities. Adventure Kitchen picks a different charity each year based on the votes it receives from its summer camp. Last year, the children who attended the camp picked Clean Water, so all the donations went to a non profit called Charity Water.
Hip NJ is proud to announce the charity for this upcoming year will be No Kid Hungry, a national campaign run by Share Our Strength! The charity’s primary goal is to resolve poverty and hunger in both the U.S. and across the world.
Adventure Kitchen has a pop-up shop on South Park Street in Montclair, NJ. They’re also present at the Montclair farmers market every Saturday.
