Earlier this month, I was invited to NYC popup event Local Harvest at the Uhuru Showroom in Tribeca. Hosted by the ladies of Pop-Up Art Event and Vin Social, Local Harvest was collaboration featuring locally sourced food, wine, art, and music. It was truly a feast for the senses, and such a wonderful way to celebrate harvest and the works of local creators. Thanks so much for having me!
Upon entering the Uhuru Showroom, I was greeted warmly and presented with a wine glass with my name on it. I tasted five different wines that evening, including a Chardonnay that complemented the butternut squash soup beautifully. I was also a fan of the mushrooms with eggplant and Cab Franc combo. Everything was vegetarian except the lamb meatballs.
The team at RARA crafted the delicious farm-to-table bites, including the stunning edible garden centerpiece. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Everyone seemed a little hesitant to eat from the garden at first, but eventually people were flocking to the table for more veggies. Even the long, dramatic wooden table by Uhuru on its own was a spectacular piece to admire.
The final food and wine pairing station featured a sweet and refreshing dessert wine, as well as stunning plates of cheese and raw honey. As I kept coming back for more honey to satisfy my sweet tooth, I noticed I wasn’t the one returning to that station for more. Who doesn’t love cheese, and when you pair it with the honey, ooh la la! What a night!
