Wine Cellarage and GE Monogram provide palate-pleasing events, instructing on crafting the perfect menu and wine list for a bevy of themed parties. Led by GE executive chef Tageré Southwell, each of the evenings involves the preparation of a complete five-course menu of seasonal appetizers and wine pairings. Attendees for each event will walk away with a bevy of booty, including a booklet containing recipes for Chef Tageré's courses cooked at the event, tasting notes on the featured wines, gift certificates and discounts from Wine Cellarage, and more. Visual learners’ eyes will drool over a video of the meal preparations and access to a webinar and webchat with Chef Tageré and a Wine Cellarage sommelier.
Located within the Architects & Designers Building in Midtown, the GE Monogram Design Center is a 4,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility with the latest in luxury kitchen appliances. With three fully equipped kitchens and a wine lounge, attendees will have plenty of space to observe meal construction, rub elbows, and re-enact scenes of their most embarrassing wine-bottle-opening moments.
