promisQous behavior in the Big Apple

September 8, 2008 at 5:59 pm (Travel) (, )

Lucky for me one of the wine brands in our portfolio is named promisQous.

Lucky for me my friend K-Dog thought it would be the perfect wine to pour at the Yummie Tummie product launch.

Lucky for me this event took place in New York City…and I got to attend.

I had sooooo much fun, almost too much fun because at this point I am exhausted.  There was shopping at H&M, a walk down 5th Avenue to Central Park, pastrami sandwich at the famed Carnegie Deli, and of course many lovely dinners and glasses of bubbly with my brother Ryan, K-Dog, and his fashionista crew!

The trip was successful for two reasons…

1.  promisQous was a huge success at the event and all but one case of red was consumed. 
2.  Ryan and I got to attend our first runway fashion show sitting front row at Cushnie et Ochs.  The show was for two new designers that just graduated from Parsons Design School and K-Dog is predicting they are the “future” of the fashion world.  Beyond exciting….the theme was American Psycho and the models walked out onto the runway from behind a revolving blade.

I’m finally now unpacked.  I’m finally through all the laundry.  But, there are no complaints.  A trip to the NYC is always welcome.

    While looking for blogs on food, wine and cheese topics, I came across your website and found it very interesting.
    I’m emailing on behalf of Ile de France, a French cheese importing company
    (Schratter Foods, since 1936). Their most popular and award winning cheeses
    are the Ile de France Brie, Ile de France Goat and Ile de France Camembert.
    (Ile de France Brie being the very first Brie imported to the US over 70
    years ago.)

    We would like to know if you would be interested in receiving a sample of
    these French cheeses and write about one of them in your blog.
    This is our second “sampling project” this year, and you can check online what other bloggers wrote last time:

    Ile de France Cheese would send you one Goat cheese, or one Brie or a Camenbert to taste and comment on.
    Please let us know before September 16th which cheese would you be interested in sampling and writing about.

    We are giving you the choice between these three different products, because we plan to send you another type of Ile de France cheeses to sample later on this year if you enjoyed this project.

    The cheese will be shipped in a cooler (UPS overnight) the 23rd of September.
    Therefore we would need from you an address where someone can receive the UPS delivery.

    We hope you will be interested in participating. In case you are not, rest assured, that we would not contact you anymore.

    In addition to the sampling program, we are also launching a recipe contest.
    The first prize will be $1000. The second and third prizes will be a cheese basket worth $150.
    In order to participate, you would need to send us a picture/pictures or a video of you cooking with Ile de France cheese as well as the recipe itself. You may enter any type of dish (soup, sandwich, desert, etc.), as long as it includes Ile de France cheese. (There are no obligations to participate in the contest, weather you accepted and received the cheese or not.)
    The recipe contest will start on September 25th and will end on October 15th when the voting will start.
    More information on the contest will be posted soon on
    If you are interested in participating please let us know.

    Please do visit our website ( anytime, it is full of cheese recipes, tips, pairing ideas, and much more, regarding other specialty cheeses such as Morbier, Comté or Boursault.

    Feel free to pick any of our recipes to write about as well, just remember that you need to mention the source and place a link to our website.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
