My wife and I were highest bidders of the dinner and cooking class at Yono's in Albany, NY. We consider this an afternoon with a friend, who may be the best chef in the Capital district. Yono and his beautiful wife, Donna, are perfect teachers and hosts. We learned from Yono in the afternoon and enjoy their companionship and his cuisine in the evening. This is a superlative cooking and dining experience with true friends of Arc Herkimer.

“The New York International Wine Auction runs flawlessly every year, but only because of the extensive—and mostly unseen—preparation done in advance. Much of that work goes into choosing the courses of the gourmet dinner and the fine wines to match with the food. Having participated in the preliminary tastings and the rehearsal dinner, it’s clear that the pairings for this year’s auction dinner are as good as any we’ve experienced in our more than 15 years of attendance. If you like delicious food, expertly paired with the finest wines, served in the midst of an organized frenzy of auction excitement, you must attend the 25th Anniversary of NYIWA!”
