For the 10th annual taste of T event Smeg USA showroom hosted PopKarma – Irresistible all-natural gourmet popcorn made from top quality, sustainably grown and real food ingredients.
The exclusive ticket-only event was attended not only by authors, food experts, designers and architects, but also by pure enthusiasts who had the chance to mix and mingle through more than 30 stunning showrooms. It was held in the A&D Building, which accommodates an immense collection of top quality home furnishing brands spread over 12 floors and is situated in the heart of the trendy Manhattan district. Some of the best chefs in New York (e.g David Bouley of the homonym Bouley restaurant, Matt Lambert of The Musket Room, Alfred Portale of Gotham Bar & Grill) were drafted in to prepare a tasting of their signature dishes and whip up some brand new delectable creations: from starters to desserts, from cocktails to champagne, thousands of foodies and wine connoisseurs enjoyed the culinary journey getting at the same time a fill of luxurious kitchen, bath, tile and stone ideas.
During the event, customers had also the chance to give a sneeky peek preview to brand new models being developed for next year, like the ‘Victoria’ Traditional Range Cooker which will be available from Spring/Summer 2014.
A portion of the proceeds was donated to “God’s Love We Deliver”, the tri-state area's leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
