Last evening, May 7th, Igal Fedida‘s gallery (1482 First Avenue, New York, NY – Tel: 310.466.3916) was filled with people, delicious cheeses, fruits, and good wine. People were coming in throughout the evening, enjoying the art, talking or listening to Igal explain what his art expression is about, and tasting the food and wine.
Among those visiting the gallery were people of every age group, in many cases you would never have expected these individuals to have much in common with each other, yet all were attracted by Igal’s art. At moments there were as many as 60 people filling the narrow gallery.

…presented two of Anderson’s lines of cheeses – the brand new Sincerely, Brigitte. and Natural & Kosher. Three of the six Sincerely, Brigitte flavors were represented (Garlic Basil, Tomato Olive, Parsley Chive); while I loved all three, but, my favorite was the Parsley Chive because of the subtle flavors herb flavors. The majority of the people, however, seemed to prefer the Tomato Olive. All three flavors disappeared as the gallery visitors gobbled them up, together with Natural & Kosher‘s selection of three goat cheeses; my favorite, among the latter, was (you guessed it!!) Fine Herbs.
The wine selections consisted of Ben Ami Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Alfasi Cabernet Sauvignon; the eight bottles did not last very long, a fitting testimony to their delightful flavors.
It was a wonderful evening of art, wine, cheese and superb conversation.
