The Laundress welcomed natural foods chef, New York Times Bestseller, and TV personality Daphne Oz to The Laundress flagship store on Wednesday, September 27, to celebrate her new cookbook, The Happy Cook. For those of you who weren’t able to score a ticket or live outside of New York City, don’t stress! Read on for a full event recap of the evening.
A SETTING FIT FOR SNACKING
Guests were welcomed to the little shop on Prince Street with Rosé, Prosecco, and a delicious assortment of smoothies courtesy of New York City-based restaurant Honeybrains.
On the menu? Daphne had two easy recipes – straight from the pages of The Happy Cook – prepared for serving. Event attendees enjoyed Veggie Turkey Bolognese over rotini noodles followed by a Blueberry Tea Cake for a little post-pasta sweet treat.

Chef's Tip: Daphne recommends eating this sauce over cannellini beans for a high-protein, pasta-free option.

Chef's Tip: Daphne and her team prepared this delicious dessert as bite-sized muffins for easy eating. They may be small, but they're packed with amazing goodness.
COMING TO YOU LIVE FROM 199 PRINCE STREET
