|Garden To Glass Couture Cocktail from Finishing Touches: The Art of Garnishing the Cocktail - Homage to Hacienda Cusin Hummingbirds|
Next week, the glitterati from the worlds of design will gather for the annual “What’s New, What’s Next” event to kick off the fall design season at the New York Design Center (NYDC.)
I’ve attended this decor limned gathering to learn and report on the many showroom brand introductions, talks, and the inspired, creative juggernaut of materials and products, as well as design concepts and trends.
So you can imagine how thrilled I am this year to be co-hosting an event at the In House Kitchen, Bath, Home showroom!
I’m over the moon to work with the creative forces that make up the In House team of Dave, Leah, and Mary and to share top billing with the extraordinary interior design talent of Toni Sabatino - who recently launched her own Retro Collection line of vanities to great success with the Italian design brand, Baden Haus.
In House’s Dave Burcher told me he’d been waiting for my book, Finishing Touches: The Art of Garnishing the Cocktail to work together again. (We collaborated on the Food of the Future NKBA talk, where I was honored to be a featured speaker).
I am honored to work with this extraordinary team again -- everything they do is top-drawer (had to go for the pun -- In House showcases closets, drawers and cabinets!), quality, and well, just so artful and glamorous.
With those qualities in mind, I choose two cocktails and their food pairings that I think are especially suited to the design motif:
- Heart of Gold
- And Sweater Weather cocktail, created by mixologist Jessica Wohlers.
We’re having lots of synergistic fun tying in the twin themes of ingredients, design, and finishing touches embellishments!
I look forward to seeing you September 14, at In House. Thank you In House and Wood-Mode.
