Kitchen tour set for May 2
COLTS NECK — The Colts Neck PTO has announced the return of its kitchen tour on May 2. The self-guided tour offers a rare opportunity to step inside some of Colts Neck’s most magnificent homes.
Ten homes will be featured, ranging from a beautifully renovated farmhouse kitchen to a 31,000-square-foot grand estate.
Tour participants will enjoy tastings from top area chefs. Each home will feature an elegant tablescape to be raffled off at the end of the tour, according to a press release.
Highlights of the tour include wholehouse transformations, culturally inspired architecture, new construction and estate homes.
Participants can visit the kitchen of cookbook author Hina Balar and see where her culinary creations become reality.
In addition to kitchens, the tour will include interiors, outdoor spaces, pool houses, wine cellars, home theaters and game rooms.
Attendees will receive a tour program as their ticket to the event. Docents will be on hand at each location to answer questions.
All guests who purchase tickets online by midnight on April 15 will be eligible for a drawing to win limo service for the event. One winner and five guests will be able to experience the tour in style with a limo to escort them to each home on the tour, courtesy of CAT Limousine of Freehold.

The tour kicks off at 9:30 a.m. May 2 at the Colts Neck Library. Participants can purchase tickets at that time or pick up tickets that have been purchased in advance. The tour concludes at 2:30 p.m., with raffle drawings following.
