A Chambre de Sucre Tea Party

Sunday, February 19, 2012 3 No tags Permalink 0

Exhausted but so happy. A big mahalo to Lisa – owner of Chambre de Sucre, for being such an amazing client (and close friend!) to work with. We hosted a launch event for Chambre’s new sugar collection yesterday – sugar in the shapes of stars, pyraminds, and so much more. The theme: casual tea party at a gorgeous UES penthouse.

The weather was perfect and everyone (as far as I could tell ;) had a great time. Thank you all for coming out on a Saturday afternoon!

In addition to the new sugar shapes, Chambre’s also introducing an exclusive line of teas come autumn. We previewed a few of these tea blends…black, herbal and white teas. Excited to see the new packaging and tea + sugar gift sets. Soon, soon!

Food was catered by Kyotofu and Two Little Red Hens. Miniature cupcakes from TLRH were delicious and adorable – a mix of key lime and peanut butter-fudge stuffed cupcakes. I could have easily devoured a dozen in a sitting. From Kyotofu we ate:

- sake-braised pork belly
- pigs in a “duvet”
- shitake and parmesan quiche
- kyotofu mini mac and cheese
- spicy tsukune chicken meatballs
- miso chocolate cakes
- sesame, matcha, and hojicha shortbreads
- genmaicha and matcha financiers

Everything was served in bite-size/mini format. Next time we’ll omit the pork belly which was a little too messy to eat, and best served warm. Aside from that, we were delighted with everything…the Japanese accent was perfect since the sugar company is based in Nagoya and has been around for nearly 300 years.

Forgot to snap photos until after the event was over…three hours flew by fast.

We opened the last bottle of prosecco after everyone left…pop! Kicked off our shoes and collapsed onto that big plush green couch.
