On Tuesday, June 5, Veranda editor in chief Clinton Smith hosted a special event at New York City’s Architects & Designers Building to celebrate the magazine’s May/June global kitchens issue. More than 150 leading designers and Veranda readers joined Smith as he led guests through three showrooms—SieMatic, Miele and Cosentino—on a tour of glorious food and wine.
At SieMatic, attendees enjoyed a special wine and cheese pairing. At presenting sponsor Miele, chef David Kirschner (formerly of Bar Boulud) gave a lively cooking demonstration on how to create an elevated picnic meal. At Cosentino, guests were treated to great music, Spanish pastries, and sparkling cava. Each showroom also had raffle prizes, which proved to be a big hit among attendees.
