Chef Curtis Stone of Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant, which has been cited as “having the ritual of eating a steak down,” hosted and joined 25 other great chefs who brought their A+ game to this event, transporting its attendees to legendary steak restaurants and epic bbq joints.
The proliferation of great steakhouses and bbq places in L.A. and across America in general is mind-boggling. Think of all the great meat palaces of the past and then amp them up and dial them in to the present and future of dry aged, wet aged, wet mopped, dry rubbed and otherwise kissed with fire, hunks of meat. Even for those who aren’t big meat-eaters, the chefs brought some Surf with their Turf, some kick-ass side dishes and yes, of course some classic dessert options as well.
To wash-it-all-down, there were also some pretty cool spirits from House of Suntory, Bulleit, Aperol & Diane Mina’s Garden Grown Cocktail Blends, and even some cool ice beers from Guinness.
Summertime wouldn’t be the same without some outdoor grillin’ n’ chillin’ going on. Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival just took that idea to all new heights with the best bbq practitioners and tamers of the flames in the business in one place. Meat Me was an unforgettable event, that allowed its guests to find both sophistication and adventure through unforgettable dishes from some of the best chefs in the business.
Here are some images from the event:
