Monika Caha Selections
Monika Caha Selections Monika Caha Selections was chosen by Frederick Wildman (NY Wholesale) as their exclusive Austrian portfolio in New York and New Jersey. Monika Caha - Philosophy Monika Caha - Biography Monika Caha was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. and is known as a pioneer of Austrian food and wine in the US. Originally, she came to the US to pursue a career in film, writing several screenplays and founding an Austrian film festival. In the 1990s, her passion for the food and wine of her country led her to open Kaffeehaus, one of the first Austrian restaurants in New York City, where she was the executive chef and owner. In 1996, Ms. Caha launched her next successful restaurant, Candy Bar and Grill. At the time, this high-concept retro restaurant and lounge became one of the hippest spots in NYC, lauded by critics for its award-winning cocktails and contemporary fusion cuisine. In 2000, she founded a wine and culinary consulting firm, Modern Food and Wine Concepts, and built a client base in both the US and in Austria. In the fall of 2001, she returned to her hometown to expand her Austrian culinary and wine knowledge. She became a consultant for high profile restaurants and gourmet shops. While exploring her native cuisine anew, she immersed herself in the world of artisanal wine production. Her travels throughout Austria's many wine regions led her to rediscover the plethora of extraordinary wines made in small wineries by dedicated winemakers. Her passion for these artisanal Austrian wines motivated her to bring her favorite vineyards to the US. In 2003, she founded Monika Caha Selections.
