  • The BRAND NEW Superfoods salad is also a BIG HIT with me! All the green things… your body deserves!

It has kale… and is well complemented by broccolini, and sweet dried 
cherries ๐Ÿ’ for a sweet tangy flavor. The dressing is a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette. Itโ€™s not overpowering… and compliments this combination very well!

Martha Stewart Food and Wine ๐Ÿท Experience…is a BIG HIT with LA Foodies

SAVOR. INDULGE. ENJOYโ€ผ๏ธ

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 โ€“ 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 soirรฉes….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 ๐Ÿ‘‘ 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.. ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ 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 โœจBRIGHTโœจ with lots of cocktails! ๐Ÿน

These are Smooth & rich pina coladas! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

… And of course…Everyone made time…for wine!๐Ÿท

This chef… was whipping up shrimp ๐Ÿค & grits with a special sauce!

These culinary Kings… were serving up gumbo!!!

My eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ LIT UP…..

when I saw this HUGE POT!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

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!

People loved tasting these olive oils & fine Balsamic from LunaOlivo

Here are photos of several other savory selections featured at this CULINARY AFFAIR ….

Foodies noshed on everything from pasta, steak, tacos, fish, sushi to…pizza and bbq selections… and more!

Cooking demonstrations are always a great way to learn new recipes… and updated methods to make food prep easier… and More tasty!

Guests also explored the ultimate Martha Stewart Experience…featuring the very latest from the lifestyle leader…

Martha & Snoop Dogg have cooked up a hit show!

Martha also has a wide variety of products on the market. Quite a few available on AMAZON.

Her EMPIRE Now including a clothing line……

and

shoes ๐Ÿ‘  available at PAYLESS!!!!

We also had a chance to enjoy arts and crafts on the scene!

I’m hand painting a cooking apron! ๐Ÿ˜„

There were Grateful House interactive demonstrations… donut decorating ๐Ÿฉ guacamole making… coffee/ cappuccino tastings…and live entertainment!

I had a wonderful day! โ˜€๏ธ This event is scheduled during the most wonderful time of the year! ๐ŸŽ„

Having this wine and food experience in December… gives us lots of ideas… for holiday entertaining, and making delectable bites for friends and family!

Here a wishโœจfor a hearty and flavorful year ahead!
