The First Annual Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival kicked off with a bang on Wednesday, October 12 and continued until October 16 all over Los Angeles. The Lexus Grand Tasting Event at L.A. Live, spanning 2 days, was no exception to the excitement. Star studded with celebrity chefs, over 300 wines, and the Lexus Tasting Lab, patrons of the event found themselves at the height of decadence and luxury with an all you can drink and eat feast from some of the nations top chefs and wineries.
Last Sunday marks the official opening of Golden Road Brewing, located in Atwater Village, Los Angeles. We’ve followed progress for a while now and were on scene for the debut event where we tried the beers, heard their plans, and found out little more of their beginnings.
Paso Robles, CA’s Firestone Walker Brewing Co. debuted their latest anniversary beer, XV, on October 12th. To kick off the brew, an eight course pairing held at the Avalon’s Bardot Room in Hollywood was conceived by “Homebrew Chef” Sean Z. Paxton with the theme of deconstruction. The intent was to take the eight beers that comprise Matt Brynildson’s blend, XV, and pair them with foods to bring out their intricacies. Ultimately, the goal was to better understand and appreciate the anniversary beer that will be available for purchase at their brewery on November 5, and to Firestone Walker vendors shortly after. We were on the scene with chef Sean Z. Paxton and Firestone Walker Brewing Co.’s brewmaster, Matt Brynildson, to chat about Deconstructed LA.
Not a morning person – that’s okay, the Grand English Breakfast from Rosewood Tavern is available during lunch. They don’t call this breakfast “grand” for no reason.
We know what you're thinking, what's a forest doing on this burger? But don't get fooled, it's quite meaty.
