Thank you to Alpine Lace for sponsoring this post and having me at their #LifeIngredients event.
I was delighted when Alpine Lace Deli Cheese invited me to an exclusive event to celebrate #LifeIngredients alongside Olympic Ice Skater Kristi Yamaguchi. The event was held on Tuesday, May 6th at Little Owl – The Venue in NYC. Keep reading to learn more about this fun night filled with delicious Alpine Lace Deli Cheese and life inspiration for all.
Alpine Lace Deli Cheese is all about inspiring people to reach for their own #LifeIngredients to lead a healthy, active and adventurous life. So, with that in mind, they set up Little Owl with three stations where we got to experience each and every one of them. Divided into three groups I ventured first into the Rumba station where professional dancers were teaching us all how to stay active by dancing. As a lover of anything music related, I loved being able to learn some new steps and dance, dance, dance. Check me out dancing here (Carla Ortiz Rumba)!
Our second stop was by the #LifeIngredients board where I got to personally meet Kristi Yamaguchi and talk about our #LifeIngredients. Mine (as you can see on the featured picture above) are Friends/Family, Music and Sweets. Yes, I even mix my cheeses with sweet things like honey and chocolate. I say, go try it and find your perfect pairing! Alpine Lace Deli Cheese encouraged us to discover our favorite pairings by welcoming us with a big table filled with all sorts of delicious ingredients to pair our Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese with.
In my book, there were three winning pairings that night:
1. Light cracker with Membrillo, Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese and Balsamic Vinegar.
2. A sweeter cracker with Prosciutto, Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese and Fresh Basil Leave.
3. A buttery cracker with Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese and Dark Chocolate.
*The first two, I paired with a refreshing white wine and the last one with a red wine perfect to finish off the night on a sweet note.
