Dirt Candy Wine Zoo
She unfolded the knee she held under her arm and fixed her long black ponytail. I knew I was going to have to move off the couch I was sitting on. She kneeled to the ground and pulled open a few drawers full of wine.

Kristen is now interning with Amanda in her kitchen, while still slinging Italian wines with me part time at Aroma.
In her other free time she organizes and is the chef for her Tall Table Supper Club -- where she serves some of Amanda's Dirt Candy creations and other inspirations.
The Wine Safari is a great epithet for an international wine program limited by size and created by Amanda's passion to share with New Yorkers "sparkling wines they can't pronounce" (love that), and introducing them to the other side of ordering just what you know. We know you've had a long NY day. You're tired. You love your routine. You love your chardonnay, pinot grigio and cabernet -- perhaps you've even mastered a little accent when you order them. Amanda Cohen asks you to take a chance and try something different.
