I travel, I eat, I cook, and I also work sometimes. My job involves many things from removing elevators and replacing them with stairs, creating bars, designing environments, and making large dinner parties. As we have a number of gala dinners coming up here in New York, I thought to write a sentence or two about the phenomenon known as the tasting.
The tasting is an unusual meal among colleagues and clients during which we taste a very large amount of different things to create the menu for the evening. This can be quite fun. We just curated a great menu for an upcoming event with our catering friends around a deliciously sexy table we created. We tasted cocktails, 10 appetizers, 3 1st courses, 3 main courses, and an array of desserts. Needless to say, after this decadence, we were highly unproductive in the studio.
I won’t give away any surprises to you who may be attending, but the table looked great…..don’t you think?
