During a class that typically lasts two hours and can accommodate 20–30 people, students taste their way toward an understanding of how to pair wines with food. Six varietals—ranging from sparkling whites to robust reds—are poured to accompany samples of various cheeses, while an instructor shares tips on identifying each wine's appearance, nose, and palate.
After working at bars and wine shops for 10 years, certified beverage professional Amanda Ladd wanted to find another outlet for her inner wine enthusiast. The result was Synesthesia NYC, a company that hosts socially wired wine- and sake-tasting classes. Ladd herself teaches the classes from inside Bamboo 52's modern sushi lounge, located in Hell’s Kitchen right next to Beelzebub’s Broom Closet. There, up to 30 guests sample artisan cheeses and high-end culinary treasures. Given the location, during the sake-tasting classes, students pair their premium sake with sushi rolls made during the class in the lounge’s kitchen.
