La Flor Dominicana goes carnivore. The Dominican cigar manufacturer and Hacking Gourmet are starting a collaboration. Together they launch the Gourmet Smoke Sessions. In a press release, La Flor Dominicana writes that with changing times, premium cigar experiences must be innovative. To provide an opportunity to connect consumers with retail partners, other consumers, and La Flor Dominicana, the LFD-GSS entertainment program is born. The La Flor Dominicana Gourmet Smoke Sessions allows participants in a premium cigar and gourmet food journey, both live and on a virtual broadcast event.

The program 

La Flor Dominicana and Hacking Gourmet will be presenting a total of 16 LFD Gourmet Smoke Sessions all over the United States. The program is spanning the next 16 months. At each “LFD GSS,” an exclusive cigar is to feature. The design and blend of the cigar will reflect and represents each session’s food preparation theme. Litto and Antonio Gomez are the guests during the sessions. They provide insight into the art of cigar making and the beauty of the premium cigar culture.

All the meat comes from the world-famous Miami meat purveyor, Meat N’ Bone. They are developing curated meals that are prepared with instruction by Hacking Gourmet during each session. The featured meals will ship nationwide through Meat N’ Bone and arrive at participating guests in temperature stable packages with all necessary ingredients included to participate along. Or to prepare at a later moment.
