I’ll be completely honest. If I don’t get to travel to New York City at least once during the year, I am completely depressed.
Tarboro is my favorite town on the planet, but Manhattan is my favorite city.
Tarboro is my loving husband (where I want to be forever and always) and New York is my wonderful dream (the place where I go to be super happy but can always leave at the blink of an eye).
This past weekend I traveled north for La Paulee, an event dedicated to the great wines of Burgundy and all of the lovers it has collected over the years.
Hedonistic doesn’t even begin to describe it.
Rare wine from exquisite vintages that cost more than my house paired with food from the greatest chefs of New York and France, the weekend is truly unbelievable.
This year’s La Paulee was especially special because this was the first time I was given the amazing opportunity to work the Rare Wine Dinner hosted on the Friday evening before the Paulee.
Just in case you’re wondering how rare, the price per person is $4750.00 + tax. A mere drop in the bucket, my nerves were pretty torn up just thinking about being there as a sommeleir.
Held at Restaurant Daniel on the upper East side, the dinner was prepared by not only Daniel Boulud and his incredible crew but also Michel Troisgros and his amazing chefs.
Not to bore you with words, I thought it would be much more entertaining to see photographs of some of the most beautiful food I have ever seen.
In case you are wondering was it worth it, I am assuming it is if you have it.
Cheers to Tarboro where our wine dinners are only $85 ++.
