On March 26, New York’s Membership Committee hosted a unique new member event, pairing cheese and wine with networking among new friends.
The event, held at Murray’s Cheese Shop in Manhattan’s East Village, brought together a diverse group of 25 new members representing law firms, service providers to the legal industry, and related associations who were joined by a few seasoned veterans.
The Murray’s team, who regularly travel the world to find the most unique and delicious products, curated a selection of cheeses for us – including a Burrata from New Jersey, a St. Stephen from New York and an Omo from Vermont. They shared information on the differences between types of cheese and how they are made, and pointers on how to analyze and finally pair the best wine with your favorite cheese.
Big thanks to Adam, our ‘Ambassador to the Cheese’ and to the Murray’s crew, who also kept our wine glasses robustly full and to the New York Membership Committee for planning such a creative event.
The New York Membership Committee is co-chaired by Willie Sleight and Amy Nielson, who also serves on the New York Steering Committee.
