For the past three years, Beverly Hills luxury home owners have cleared their calendars for the beloved Beverly Hills Wine & Food Festival, and last month was no different. Some of the world’s most talented chefs came together at the 4th annual event that took place at the Westfield Century City Mall and four-diamond Hyatt Regency Century Plaza over three days in November.
Some of the restaurants and sponsors represented as part of the event included Chaya, MR CHOW, Joel Robuchon, Pacific Dining Car, Bagatelle LA, Tom Colicchio’s Craft Los Angeles, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Jean Marie Auboine Chocolates, Beverly Wilshire A Four Seasons Hotel, THE Blvd Restaurant, 9021PHO, DeLuscious Cookies & Milk, GoodieGirls, and STK Los Angeles among others. Additionally, patrons were treated to the delicacies of three chefs from US Foods, a new sponsor this year. Chefs Aaron Williams, Rahm Fama and Penny Davidi dazzled diners with their culinary wonders.
Sure, there is no shortage of five-star dining establishments in Beverly Hills and in surrounding communities, but to have all of these first-rate chefs and restaurants under one roof was the thing that dreams are made of for local foodies. Guests were able to sample dishes and drinks from some of the food and wine industry’s most renowned stars. From elegant food to chocolates, desserts, pastries, cheeses and, of course, the wine, it was a fantastic way to spend a November weekend.
Tickets for this year’s event were $150 for general admission and $300 for VIP, which included an extra hour of tasting. Events included “Mixology After Dark,” which offered guests the chance to taste outstanding wines, beers and spirits from Bombay Sapphire, Malibu Rocky Oaks, Contreau, Grgich Hills Estate, Prairie Organic Vodka, Beverly Hills Beer and more at the Westfield Century City Mall. The “Grand Tasting,” which took place both weekend days at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, offered guests the chance to sample from the chefs and restaurants noted above. Proceeds from the event benefited a variety of charities and organizations charged with assisting those less fortunate, so the weekend was as much about a good time as it was about a good cause.
Guests may have seen a familiar face among those dishing during the event. Kelis, who is best known for her song “Milkshake,” is also a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu culinary school and chose the Beverly Hills Wine & Food Festival as the place to debut her Feast line of cooking sauces.
Plans are already in place for next year’s 5th annual Beverly Hills Wine & Food Festival, and although no dates have been released, Beverly Hills luxury home owners are encouraged to make themselves a reminder. This year’s event was a sell-out, and as word of mouth spreads concerning this fantastic event, there’s no doubt that next year will be the same.
