Nuit du Gateau Celebrates Maison du Chocolat 20 Years in New York, November 3, 7 to 12 PM

Besides winning a copy of Dessert Fourplay by Johnny Iuzzini with this week's contest, here's another chance for Cakeheads to satisfy their sweet cravings if they are in the New York area.


I rarely quote press releases verbatim but since this one spells it all very clearly, why not?

"La Maison du Chocolat invites all New Yorkers to an evening dedicated to pastry and chocolate: “La Nuit du Gâteau” on Wednesday, the 3rd of November, in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of its arrival in New York/
A public tasting of desserts and pastries from 7pm to midnight will be held at the Madison Avenue boutique of La Maison du Chocolat, located at 1018 Madison Avenue in New York City. Simultaneously, the other boutiques – 30 Rockefeller Center and 63 Wall Street – will be open from 7 to 9pm offering tastings of desserts and chocolate pastries to all visitors.
Pastries will be the highlight of the event, including samples from our all-time classics to the latest creations such as chocolate tarts, macarons, ice-cream as well as sneak previews of many new creations like the classic La Maison Mousse au Chocolat, the Salvador Cake, the delicious sTARTElette and finally, the launching of the acclaimed La Maison du Chocolat éclairs in New York in celebration of La Maison’s 20th Anniversary in New York.
A tent will be set up in front of the Madison Avenue boutique featuring complimentary desserts and drinks with live jazz music in the background."

My guess is it will be crowded since rain is on the radar on Wednesday.

I hopefully will be able to visit for an hour and share a photo report the next day. Sorry if it makes those of you who could not make it there salivate.


You don't have to be on Hollywood Boulevard to get your own Star thanks to 'Startelette' above.

No tricks, only treats!

Where's the beef from? What can you expect at Cocks and Cows, an American burger joint re-imagined in Copenhagen? Not subtlety. this fairly new eaterie sticks to the basics. They use US beef, serve their burgers no more than medium and use fresh ingredients. The twist on many burger joints in the US is they offer zany cocktails with names like Blood and Sand (a throwback to the 30's) and Port Light (bourbon and grenadine)....
