Tasty Tasting

A few weeks ago Melanie and I had to do the hard work of flying to Los Angeles 
to do a test tasting for one of our events.
The event is going to be held at the JW Marriott at L.A. LIVE.

The hotel chef, sommelier, and conference services all did an excellent job 
creating delicious menus paired with wonderful wines for us to taste. 
Here is a sneak peek at what we tasted for our 
500-person "Old Hollywood Gala."

 We tasted three options for the first course.
  Chef created mini "tastings" of the first course.
Next up...entree course.

 And...mini "tastings" of the entree course.
For dessert, we decided to do a centerpiece with many different options 
for the guests – with fun gold accents!
