It was my immense pleasure to have been hosted at the Nespresso store on Newbury Street last night for a fantastic evening of good food, wine, coffee and conversation with several other local bloggers and with none other than Food Network's Ted Allen. If you are a coffee lover, you should certainly check out their shop and especially their new fancy Latissima machine which combines espresso and milk foam in one machine.
I was very impressed with the store's decor and the table setting was sleek and inviting.
The wine was abundant which this girl in Boston certainly appreciates!
Each course was paired with both wine and coffee and all the food had hints of coffee in the ingredients. I'm usually more of a savory than a sweet but I must admit, I really enjoyed the desserts. The trio of desserts above were mini mocha frappe with Nespresso chocolate pearls, vanilla affagato with coffee biscotti and Nespresso pot du creme and hazelnut crema.
Ted Allen was as lovely and engaging in person as he appears on TV. He has a cookbook coming out next May (possibly called In My Kitchen?) so be certain to pick it up!
And Ted was kind enough to take a photo with me and Naina. Thanks Ted and Nespresso for a super fun evening!
