As you all probably know, (because I gave a seat away and Instagrammed about it a couple of times), I attended the lastest Cooking for Luv Pop-up Dinner hosted by Stephanie Goldfinger (@cookingforluv) and Kim Cruickshanks (@helloimkim)! I can’t even begin to describe to you how amazing the food was! It was a six course, fully vegetarian, absolutely delicious meal. The theme was “Celestial” and it was held in a secluded area in Santa Monica under the beautiful spring night sky. Greeted with friendly faces and yummy wines (that kept coming all night!), it was a delight from start to finish. I am going back and reading what I just wrote and it sounds like I am writing a travel/foodie commercial of some sort, BUT REALLY, it was amazing!
The chef, Stephanie Goldfinger, is a master of vegetarian cuisine! She was just featured on the Food Network for her inventive vegetarian plates, and now I 100% understand why. The main course of charred jackfruit pork was, I kid you not, the most delicious pork and “pork” I have had in my life. Below are a few snaps from the night and be sure to keep reading to find out how to snag Stephanie for your very own!
Stephanie Goldfinger teaches a 2-hour hands-on, small group, Meatless Monday class (each Monday it’s a different meatless topic, schedule over here), in the Cooking for Luv home kitchen. She also does private, small group, and team building corporate cooking lessons by appointment. Stephanie is available to book for your own pop-up dinners, or if you would like to throw a vegetarian dinner party for your friends! I highly, HIGHLY, recommend her.
