2013 6th Annual On Trend Excursion

On Tuesday, June 11th the WFFC held their 6th annual On Trend Excursion in the trendy neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Fortunately the weather cooperated and the sun was out. The event was hosted by Amy Marks-McGee of Trendincite LLC and Jeanine Pedersen of Takasago. The inspiring day began at Fabiane’s Café & Pastry where the attendees enjoyed gluten free Yucca cake and an iced beverage. Juice Press followed as we learned about and sampled four healthy, cold-pressed juices and smoothies including Watermelon Super Cleanser, Mother Earth, Dr. Green and Almond Butter Cup. A representative from the store spoke about “organic calories” and how they differ from that of regular calories. Next stop on the excursion was Woodley & Bunny, an upscale apothecary and salon where the group smelled, tried and purchased several unique personal care finds. Lunch was served at Allswell, a farm to table restaurant with a chic, country feel. To whet our appetite, the Ginless Wonder, a non-alcoholic cocktail with fresh ginger, lime, Oro Blanco grapefruit, mint and strawberries was served. For appetizers, we indulged in house-made Ricotta with toasted olive bread and beet and goat cheese salad. A choice of main dishes included a unique flatbread with Ricotta, kale and a fried egg, a crispy chicken sandwich or a hamburger. Dessert was a delectable strawberry rhubarb slab pie with fresh whipped cream. The day concluded at Mast Brothers Chocolate, an artisanal hand-crafted chocolatier, which offers dark chocolate in small batch combinations.  Attendees tasted many varieties including the limited edition Vanilla Smoke and Caramel Maple flavors as well as Olive & Sinclair Sea Salt. Our senses were delighted and stimulated and we all left full of inspiration.
