"For the longest time we have been searching to create an event platform at Leiberts to match and rival our retail capabilities and it hasn’t been easy," said Stuart Royal, President of Leiberts Royal Green. "But with the emergence of Kate and her show "Fork This with IntoxiKate" to host the series, and the ability to collaborate with industry professionals like Westchester’s Top Chefs, the platform came together organically and in my experience that’s the best way for it to evolve."
