In-Flight with Nespresso and Padma Lakshmi

Wednesday, June 6, 2012 1 No tags Permalink 0

Nespresso took us on a flight at their SoHo flagship this evening. The entire boutique was transformed into a giant plane…off we go! They had it covered from martinis (spiked with espresso) to in-flight meals of arepas and spicy empanadas. The flight attendants were gorgeous down to pins, heels, and silk scarves. Padma Lakshmi was captain for the night. She lead us through a tasting of…

…grand crus from different countries. From right/least intense to left/most intense: Dulsão, Rosabaya (Pierre’s current favorite – he goes through phases) and Indriya.

We landed just in time for dessert. A caramel affogato concocted from espresso, vanilla bean ice cream, caramel and a frothy top.

    Why was the event in a airplane theme? Were they just being creative or is Nespresso going to be served on select flights or carriers?
