The first annual Los Angeles Times Food Bowl is happening throughout the month of May with events, panel discussions with world-class chefs and a series of themed dinners at restaurants around the city.
This Sunday’s Beast Feast at Coral Tree Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles is likely to be the biggest event of the series. Some of the hottest names in the culinary world will be there to prepare a one-of-a-kind al fresco feast. The appropriately named Beast Feast will feature the talents of big-name chefs from all over the world as they bring their favorite meat-centric dishes to the table.
The meal will start with a sustainable raw seafood bar from Michael Cimarusti (Providence), Border Grill signature cocktails, and a “nose to toes” live demonstration of whole animal butchery from Michael Puglisi and the Electric City Butcher team.
It’s then that the beast fare really kicks into high gear with tastes of unctuous pork, beef, lamb and quail. Fergus Henderson of London’s St. John will be grilling; Nancy Silverton (Mozza) and Dario (the Italian butcher) Cecchini will be tossing warm beef shin; BBQ kingpin Kevin Bludso will craft melt-in-your-mouth brisket and rib tips and you’ll watch Spring Lamb Leg a la Ficelle roasted over an open fire pit by New York’s April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig). Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill) give Wolfe Ranch Quail the rubdown before they kiss the fire and Mozza’s Dahlia Narvaez is ending the divine feast with a sweet surprise.
