Strike A Pose

Sometimes simple is better; clean lines, bold flavors, and sophisticated presentation. When the food and fashion collide, it is important to represent a brand to its truest nature.  When working with the luxury brand, Valentino, we took everything under consideration while crafting the menu.  Of course we wanted it to be delicious, but we wanted the food to be fanciful yet understated, much like the early designs of Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani, the line’s original designer, who is known for his chic one-color collections, such as “Valentino Red” and “No Color” collections.

Our menu, comprised of Passed Hors D’oeuvres and Desserts, entertained the guests, comprised of Social Influencers, mimicked the simple, yet striking designs of the Maxfield boutique courtyard.  This was truly a fabulous event for the fabulous client.

Can You Hear It?

Hosting an event really starts by picking the venue, as it can really set the tone for the entire evening.  Since Los Angeles is so populated with special occasions, it gets difficult to find a location where people haven’t been that’s still exciting.  The good new is, because we are part of an ever growing city, there are always really cool new sites being built or found where people can hold events.  This was the case when we catered an event for an Ultimate Ears.

Ultimate Ears is a local company who specializes speaker production, including in-ear monitors, speakers, and ear phones; their newest innovation is a waterproof wireless Bluetooth speaker that can hook up to existing platforms like Alexa.  With a sleek and colorful design, the company looks to stand out against all its competitors.

Because of this, the event had to be cool and different.  The Row is a new development of industrial workspaces set just outside Downtown Los Angeles.  Comprised of multiple buildings with exposed materials, high ceilings, massive windows, and overlooking DTLA with an unparalleled view, the location is perfect for art exhibits, sample sales, food trucks and festivals; it’s definitely a cool location.

With seventy social media influencers attending, the stage was set for the perfect event.  Our menu was classic yet flashy, much like the product they were unveiling.  Guests dined on four passed apps, including our crisp Bacon wrapped Medjool Dates with shredded Duck and a Cranberry drizzle, and sipped two specialty cocktails.  The event, which went from 7pm until 10pm, allowing the buildings of downtown to twinkle from dusk into evening, was a complete success.

Working with luxury clients is always exciting as it gives us a chance to pair our food with a brand’s image.  The La Cienega Design Quarter (LCDQ) for more than half a century, has been the destination for sophisticated shoppers looking for top quality design. This legendary district, with its romantic courtyards, alluring windows and treasure troves of antiques, furniture, lighting, fabrics, stone, rugs, accessories and art, is known as the “shopping heart” and workplace of the interior design profession.


Working together at the LCDQ Legends event with Missy Fine of Missy Fine Events was an absolute pleasure!  Throughout the day, we entertained guests in and out of the design quarter.  Laid upon clean black lacquered trays and adorned with a white orchid bloom, our guests dined upon a variety of delectable hors d’oeuvres including Smoked Salmon Blinis topped with Chive Crème Fraiche and Lemon, along with Baby Artichoke and Red Pepper Crostinis with Shaved Reggiano cheese and drizzled with Truffle Oil.

Throughout the entire LCDQ Legends event, we were able to work in many more stores and bring our food to many more people.

To E3 And Beyond!

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is one of the coolest events of the year!  E3 is the biggest video gaming expo in the business and takes place over multiple days in Downtown Los Angeles.  Not only do the big video game display, but other accessory companies show their products to the thousands of people who attend the Expo.


Naturally, we were so excited to be brought on by Ubisoft at the Orpheum Theater for multiple meals over multiple days.  As the crew setup leading to the big press conference, Chris Brugler Catering provided breakfast and lunch options for their crew, fully equipped with craft service snacks.  Morning consisted of Grilled Vegetable Scrambled Eggs or Challah King’s French Toast, while lunch would have the crew enjoy delights like Rigatoni with Turkey Sausage.

When the presentation day finally came, there were thousands of people lined up to hear all about the new products Ubisoft was unveiling.  Partnering with Barts Carts, we served popcorn to the attendees.  For the speakers, presenters, and talent, we provided delicious VIP meals.


This was one of the coolest events and we were so happy that Ubisoft was so happy with how everything turned out!
