As part of FoundersCard’s newest Signature Experience series, an intimate evening for Members was hosted at La Scuola di Eataly in New York by Pat La Frieda. Pat La Frieda Meat Purveyors supplies beef to some of the country’s most famous eateries and is the beef behind famous New York burgers at Minetta Tavern, Union Square Cafe, Shake Shack and many others.
For this unique experiential event, La Frieda and The Glenlivet partnered to create a meal that paired perfectly with The Glenlivet’s 18 year old and 21 year old expressions. Over two evenings, FoundersCard Members enjoyed entertaining demonstrations by La Frieda that guided them through step-by-step meat preparation techniques in Eataly’s open teaching kitchen. An ambassador from The Glenlivet was also on hand to guide Members through the essences and tastes of their scotches that was welcoming to those that were both new to scotch, or others with seasoned palates.
La Frieda’s menu included his signature Burger Blend Slider, a Strip Loin with Seasoned Vegetables, and a savory Crown Roast of Lamb with Fennel.
