A few weeks ago, Stella Artois invited me to its ‘A Symphony of Flavors’ event near the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Improvisational chef Jonah Reider, who hosts a weekly supper club called Pith, co-hosted the event. The soiree celebrated the launch of the “Make Every Table a Chef’s Table” video. The dynamic video is part of the brand’s “Host One to Remember” 4-part video series in collaboration with T Brand Studio. I loved the event’s concept of pairing artistic cuisine with lively music, all in a scenic venue. A big brass band performed all throughout the evening mixing classic and modern tunes. The evening was definitely filled with innovative elements.
To start off the evening, Jonah showcased 2 cocktails that paired perfectly with the food: Stella Artois Cidre Cinnamon Spice for a zesty flavor and Stella Artois Cidre Sweet Harmony for a sweeter flavor. We enjoyed multiple tasting stations with his delicious dishes such as oysters, celeriac soup, phyllo triangles, and fluke crudo. We also tried tomatoes filled with corn puree and hot dog sausages. To close out the evening, we enjoyed Jonah’s desserts such as panna cotta with caramelized apple cider and madeleine cream puffs that had a pastry cream infused with Stella Artois.
Flavorful dishes and tasty cocktails shined that evening. Jonah is a great host and you can truly see how much he enjoys bringing people together, much as Stella Artois does. He created a memorable occasion with his art of hosting and his innovative flair. Cheers to Stella Artois for celebrating the social experience of gathering together and throwing an amazing soiree!
