It’s truly an honor to be asked to host a fabulous cocktail party at Kosaka - the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Gotham!
Kosaka is an elegant restaurant, revered not only for its food, but for its art program, curated by EunYoung - the extraordinary horticulture talent, who I’ve had the honor of working with -- in New York, in New Jersey and in Ecuador - at Hacienda Cusin - where she introduced the gardeners there in the edible garden to microgreens. (just one of EunYoung's extraordinary talents).
See the overview and links below for Art of the Garnish details.
Please share and invite your garden-to-glass cohort in Gotham area to this tasty, pre-Valentine, fun event. Long live love!
We’ll be serving up four cocktails, food-pairings, barscapes, and readings. There will be the opportunity for book signings, too, naturally.
I sincerely hope you can join us.
