Lexus invited us to cook inside of their booth for the grand tasting on Sunday which was held here at Post Ranch. The booths are always creative works of art, and this year’s was no exception. The booth was modeled after an old west saloon, complete with a wall of spurs and cowhide bar stools. Keeping with the theme, we made aji Amarillo glazed smoked chicken wings, braised mangalitsa pork belly on crispy chicharones, acorn bread with prickly pear preserves and smoked smores in mini jars. Over the course of the event we served over 4,000 tastings. Being in the booth and having the opportunity to talk with guests about the food made for a great afternoon.
Thanks to Lexus, our guest chefs and everyone who made the event such a success!
