I still have a bunch of Argentina posts coming…but in the meantime, I wanted to share this tea and dessert collaboration I’m doing with Michelle Karr-Ueoka of MW Restaurant. My first job (over a decade ago!) was working for Michelle at Alan Wong’s. We’ve been friends since, and I am super excited for this event. It’s a three-course tea and dessert pairing. Three of my favorite teas for the season (prepared in both traditional and more unusual ways) and three desserts specifically created by Michelle to pair with each tea. Hope to see you at MW Restaurant on December 27th!
