Savor Los Angeles: Treat Your Sweet Teeth 7/30


Posted by Anisha | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 7/27/2010

Someone read my mind and created an event dedicated to desserts! That someone happens to be Parallel Lines, a group of creatives that expertly plan, promote, and execute full scale events in the food and beverage industry. What does that mean for us? An awesome dessert tasting event called Savor Los Angeles    Sweets Edition!

It's a dessert tasting extravaganza featuring a spectacular selection of dessert makers from all around Los Angeles. These confectioners are handpicked by creatives with a keen eye for innovation coupled with an emphasis on organic, sustainable desserts. Champagne will be flowing, as well as a darling new concept called "Boxed Water," PAMA cocktails, and more!

I clearly love desserts! I suppose that's why I'm an LA Desserts Examiner and take every opportunity to order dessert. My bestie Jessica adds to the cliché "there's always room for dessert." She insists that "there's a separate compartment just for dessert!" Bottomless pit, much?

Hope to see you at Savor Los Angeles this Friday! For more info, be sure to check out their website and follow @savorlosangeles on Twitter.

Névé & Camarena Tequila: Celebrating National Tequila Day


Posted by Anisha | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 7/25/2010

Happy National Tequila Day from food is my nish!

July 24th was National Tequila Day and it was only appropriate that the LA Food Fest offered tequila and mezcal tastings along with other boozy friends, namely Sailor Jerry rum and Singha beer. Before I start hacking away at the mega recap, here's shout out to one of the tastiest tequila cocktails at LA Food Fest's Summer Tasting Event.

A partnership of Michel Dozois' Névé Ice and Camarena Tequila resulted in the tangy concoction known as Mexican Spice.

Mexican Spice
Camarena Tequila Silver, agave nectar, fresh lime juice, strawberry, cayenne pepper
(and a big hunk of Névé luxury ice, of course!)

Make the refreshing Mexican Spice at home:

2 oz Camarena Silver
1 oz fresh lime juice
¾ oz agave nectar
2 dashes cayenne pepper
1 strawberry (muddled, of course!)
