Take a Michelin Star, a pair of worn in jeans, and a European accent and you have yourself a celebrity chef in New York. And it only took 6 weeks to complete the task. At JF Reads and Treats I branded the special event series “Sex on the Table”, in which we hosted 500 consecutively sold-out aphrodisiac cooking and dining events in New York’s trendy Lower East Side and Hell’s Kitchen neighborhoods. Time Out New York voted Sex on the Table “the coolest thing to do in New York”: 16 couples, two chefs, and hard working support staff put on a unique cooking and dining experience night-in, night-out. Guests were instructed in the hands-on creation of their own 3-course aphrodisiac dinner at their own workstations. After about 90 minutes of cooking, the couples were seated at communal tables and a lavish dinner party would begin. Sex on the Table provided me with the opportunity to appear on Food Network’s Chopped. We were covered by E!News, Fox 5, Cosmopolitan, Maxim, Time Out New York, NY Post and many more.
