Event Recaps

Chefs Tasting Pop-Up Recap!

July 21, 2014

On June 30th Foodstand co-hosted with Welcome Table a local chef’s tasting pop up at Purpose.

We’d like to share a quick recap of this SOLD OUT event!

First, we would like to take a moment to appreciate our co-host – Welcome Table. Welcome Table is a private chef booking service that supports Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United) organization that helps chefs dedicated to good food in finding jobs.

We were able to book 3 local amazing chefs for the event – Chef Flo, Chef Jin & Chef Mukti.


We had over 65+ diners that joined us — food lovers, writers, entrepreneurs, journalists, and most importantly dear friends of Foodstand and Welcome Table fans. All diners got three colorful delicious tastings from the chefs. Each chef also got to share their own stories, ingredients of the dishes and had time for a question/answer session.



Meet Chef Flo from Serve M.E. Now 

Chef Flo created Italian-inspired dishes featured in his “Pasta Perfect” Cooking Class.


  • Homemade Tagliatelle tossed w/ Pesto alla Genovese
  • Traditional Bruschetta topped w/ a Pea Pesto & Fresh Jersey Tomatoes drizzled w/ a balsamic reduction featuring NYC Rooftop Honey

Meet Chef Mukti from Mukti’s Kitchen

We were so excited to wash down all this delicious food with Switchel cocktails!

 Switchel Cocktail Recipe.

  •  1 oz Tito’s handmade, 4 oz Switchel

Shaken and served chilled. So refreshing and good!
