Pebble Beach Food & Wine 2014 Grand Tasting
This year our theme was the “Great Kitchen Disaster of 1963” “Burnt Toast and Spam”. Our booth was decked out with tons of vintage wares, including an antique toaster and lots of Spam paraphernalia. The idea was that our charming host, Simone, was throwing a little dinner party and everything went wrong - from broken jello molds to an authentic vintage hedgehog recipe made from bar olives and cream cheese. All that was left to serve was burnt toast and spam.
Our wonderful kitchen crew, Amber, Maya and Yulanda were all decked out in vintage aprons – while Obdiel opted for something a bit more serious.
The actual dish: Smoked Goose Terrine with Wild Onion Blossom, Caramelized Shallot Jam and Australian Black Truffle on Ink Toast was a huge hit….. though some of the guests who had a few too many glasses of wine left thinking they had actually just eaten burnt toast and spam (hopefully they don’t try to replicate at home!).
