During the demonstrations, the chef and staff of Tribeca Canvas passed around lamb buns, spicy tuna, duck gyoza-sweet chili sauce, and lotus chips with wasabi guacamole as appetizers to go along with traditional East Mule cocktails made with Bombay Sapphire East, tea, and ginger.

The event welcomed many of The Daily Meal’s clients including KitchenAid, Plain and Fancy, All-Clad, and others.
