On Thursday, May 5th female entrepreneurs, mother's and good friends Sabrina Rudin & Anastasia Ganias-Gellin hosted a delightful Mother's Day brunch to celebrate their circle of mothers, entrepreneurs and friends. Notable attendees included Rebecca Minkoff, Eden Grinshpan, Melissa Wood Tepperberg, Arielle Charnas, Maria Duenas Jacobs, Pamela Tick, Tali Magal, Carolyn Angel, Rachel Blumenthal, Madison Rae, Joanna Hillman, Elissa Lipsky and Violet Gaynor to name a few.
Sabrina Rudin founded Spring Café Aspen in Aspen, Colorado nine years ago. After much success in the popular ski town, she took her concept to her hometown, New York City. They focus on using top-tier organic ingredients whilst being mindful of the environment, from cookware and even down to the materials used when building their restaurants.
Fancy Peasant Founder Anastasia Ganias-Gellin, a first-generation Greek American, started Fancy Peasant by sharing her stylish, modern spin on traditional mountain cuisine from her family's region of Greece. Fancy Peasant Olive Oil is made from hand picked olives, sourced on a single-estate in Greece. Fancy Peasant Greek Mountain Oregano Blend is made with Greek Mountain Oregano, Orange Peel, Lemon Peel, Crushed Chili Pepper, Parsley, Mediterranean Sea Salt, Black Pepper
Guests were treated to a delicious assortment of healthy fresh pressed juices and indulged in the cafe's organic and nourishing new vegetarian spring items. The menu included chickpea shakshuka, coconut pancakes, and avocado toast in addition to Fancy Peasant's signature dishes, oils, and spices. Everyone took home goodies that included Fancy Peasant olive oil, Fancy Peasant Greek mountain oregano blend, spanakopita, and Spring Café Aspen Golden Juice. A donation was made in each guest's name to World Central Kitchen which is currently working to provide critical meal support to refugees fleeing Ukraine.
