Harvest Moon Hoedown

Julia Child once said, "People who love to eat are always the best people".  I love contributing to events designed for these types of people. Food People. This was my second year taking part in the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar corporate holiday party and each year it just keeps getting better and better. The event is designed by creative mastermind Wylie West Creative and I was one of a big group of culinary vendors included in this year's festivities. Here is a look at the cheese and charcuterie display we created for their outdoor hoedown at Newport Beach Dunes. 

All photos were taken by our friend and photographer, Andrea, of Andrea Patricia Photography.

Save Water. Drink Wine.

The Pine Salon Series strikes again. This time with an intimate dinner at Venue 66 featuring a sustainable menu by yours truly and conversation about the facts surrounding California's drought and the topic of conservation in general.  We had some incredible guest speakers including Liz Crosson, the water policy advisor from the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti, Paul Lazarus, the director of "Slingshot", a film about segway inventor Dean Kamen and his work to solve the world's water crisis, and Brian Tichenor of Tichenor & Thorp Architects. Collaborators included Mountain Valley Water and ClubW. The event design and creative direction was by the one and only Wylie West Creative. We also had our incredible photographer friend, Andrea, of Andrea Patricia Photography, on hand to capture some of the magic.
