“Meet the Cow” Do not eat alone event.


I hosted a Do Not Eat Alone Moo Meet event. It was curated with the latest real single sourced food from Grafton Artisan Cheese, Organic Veggies from the Union Square Farmers Market, Ottomanelli’s prime aged meats, Pepper and Paprika I personally imported from Istanbul Turkey, reference blue cheese from Murrays Cheese and Kona flaked seat salt from Hawaii. I processed and produced homemade single source Tahini Sauce and local organic horseradish from the farm in Riverhead, Long Island. Pre-meal olive oil tasting included 5 of the worlds finest award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oils, 2 of which I personally imported from Turkey, 3 from Italy and 1 from Spain.
