Wine for the 99™ Announces Valentines Day Event: Graffiti and Chocolate
Pastry chef and wine expert pair up for a singles Valentine’s Day dinner and dessert class that draws on their teen years writing graffiti in Washington Heights
“We grew up writing graffiti together in the Heights and have been looking for a project where we could collaborate,”
Chef Stephen Shea who has worked at restaurants including Mesa Grill, Otto, Lutece, and David Burke’s DBK will prepare a light dinner followed by his signature dessert: A decadent three-layer hazelnut gianjuja brick with bourbon caramel sauce and a graffiti lacing.
Galliani will pair each course with wines that draw on Wine for the 99’s ethos which champions smaller estate-grown wines.
Chef Shea will prepare dessert at the chef’s table so guests may watch and participate. There will also be plenty of war stories from the kitchens of celebrity chefs along with tales of New York City in the 80s and 90s.
