New York’s—and the world’s—finest tastemakers turned out and lingered long at the media launch of the new Four Seasons blog aimed at lovers of food and travel and hosted by Four Seasons Hotel New York on December 6, 2012.
More than 50 journalists, including editors and contributors from outlets as varied as The New York Times’ T Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler and Saveur as well as independents such as food and travel writer Kathy Chan and celeb writer Jeryl Brunner, explored the gourmet food and took a sneak peek at the site, displayed on pedestals topped with iPads.
A baker’s dozen of Four Seasons chefs and mixologists were on hand to deliver variations on a fruit near and dear to the city that never sleeps—the apple. View the gallery to see the delicious bites and sips at the event.
Here are a few immediate reactions, and a report on the food and the event, from those who were there:
