Teas Etc published their 2011 cupping and events schedule which includes a collaboration with Charlie Palmer's Aureole restaurant. Aureole, a Four Diamond AAA award winning restaurant, is hosting the Cooking with Tea Demonstration where attendees will experience the intricacies of cooking with loose leaf tea followed by a four course private luncheon.
Teas Etc worked with celebrity chefs to select blends that would pair perfectly with tea infused dishes to further enhance the taste experience for guests. "We are inviting all Cooking with Tea attendees to visit Teas Etc Booth #415 to pick up a complete sample collection of all the teas featured for pairings and infused in dishes" said Beth Johnston Founder and CEO of Teas Etc. "The sample collection will include our Tea Traveler™ so teas can be easily brewed while still at the Expo." Johnston continues, "working with tea from a culinary perspective has been a lot of fun for our creative team and we think that Teas Etc and Aureole chefs have a real taste treat in store for those participating in this awesome opportunity." In addition, Teas Etc will be giving away two tickets to the event in an upcoming drawing.
