S.Pellegrino is happy to have been part of the huge surprise for Wylie Dufresne in New York - a project organized by the international chef collective Gelinaz!
The event took over a year of planning and saw 29 of the world’s biggest chefs come together to convince Wylie Dufresne there had been a major electrical problem at his WD-50 restaurant so they could surprise him with a party in his honor.
Once the lights were on, Wylie realized colleagues from around the globe had just jumped from the darkness yelling surprise. Guests sat down to sample a menu created by the 29 chefs, who had broken up into groups to remix some of Wylie’s signature dishes.
This video captures the excitement of the night and includes some words from Wylie on how he felt when he eventually realized what was happening.
