SAVOR. INDULGE. ENJOY‼️
The 2018 Martha Stewart Wine & Food Experience… was presented by USA TODAY.. at Los Angeles Center Studio…Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (VIP Entry.. was at 12 noon)!
What a way… to start the holiday season! An exquisite table setting…instantly put me in a festive mood. Let the Christmas soirées….and dinner parties BEGIN!!!
It was a glorious day… in downtown LA! I savored every delicious bite…in the GRAND TASTING EVENT… with hundreds of other foodies…
The highlight of the afternoon… was catching MARTHA STEWART in action on center stage! She prepared food… and answered questions from the audience.
The culinary QUEEN 👑 talked about the importance of preparing fresh and delicious food from scratch.
Martha says she NEVER uses anything from a can!
I heard that loud… and clear!
Soooo…. I made my way right on over to the fruit & vegetable cart.
During a candid conversation with her audience… Martha even talked about making food for her 4 dogs… She says she uses all natural ingredients…( including fresh fish)
After the food is mixed by hand… or prepped in a blender … She stores it in small containers in her freezer… until needed.
When asked about what gives her the greatest JOY…
Martha says she enjoys baking most…
She gets great pleasure out of making homemade cookies, and pies with fruit.
–Especially apples.. 🍏 🍎 picked from the trees.. around her home.
Fine Cuisine, Comfort Foods, Appetizers, Desserts, Wine, Beer and Cocktails… were prepared by local and national chefs and mixologists.
Mixologists were making spirits ✨BRIGHT✨ with lots of cocktails! 🍹
These are Smooth & rich pina coladas! 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
… And of course…Everyone made time…for wine!🍷
This chef… was whipping up shrimp 🍤 & grits with a special sauce!
These culinary Kings… were serving up gumbo!!!
My eyes 👀 LIT UP…..
when I saw this HUGE POT!👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
It was hot… and delicious with PLENTY of mussels & shrimp!
The spice was nice… and gave it a nice kick!
Adding another level of flavor to food is serious!
