The Vintage Bouquet is an event to support the charitable causes of the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation including pro bono programs that focus on community outreach, legal education and access to the justice system.
Lawry’s Catering has been involved in this event for over a decade. It is always organized at the beautiful and historical Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. This year, the event was on Sunday April 27, 2014 and Lawry’s Catering was placed in the Terrace Area which happened to be the VIP section. It overlooks the whole city!
Lawry’s Catering decided to feature a roast beef slider with au jus and horseradish accompanied by a side of the famous creamed corn…
We were surrounded by wonderful vendors who had some tasty items. Our neighbors were The Baltic Cupboard who featured assorted flavored cheeses
The ladies Silvija and Inta create hand-made cheese. Some of the cheeses contain eggs and milk to make a silkier and more soufflé-like texture. Delicious!
Partida Tequila featured a margarita with Partida Blanco Tequila, Partida Organic Agave Nector and Organic Lime Juice
Chareau Aloe Liqueur is a new spirit that is homemade by founder Kurt Charron. He makes the liqueur at home with all organic ingredients
Their Splendor in the Grass was one of the most popular cocktails at the event. It was a mix of Chareau Aloe, fresh lime juice, arugula and agave nectar.
One of the non-alcoholic beverages was Nekter Juice Bar. The juices were first created by Steve and Alexis Schulze in Costa Mesa. Their juices are packed with fresh fruits and vegetables
Le Bon Garcon is an online sweet shop where all treats are hand-crafted.
Founder Justin Chao formed Le Bon Garcon in 2010 after being in Paris at the prestigious Bellouet Conseil where he trained with some of the best pastry chefs. He also trained at the legendary, 3-star Michelin restaurant Le Meurice.
The bedazzling Lock & Key craft bar was also a sponsor. They featured their “Old Money” which was a mix of Monkey Shoulder scotch whiskey, demarara, ginger, bitters and garnished with an orange peel. The perfect cocktail! This neighborhood mixology bar is located on South Vermont Avenue.
We were delighted to be near Le Mervetty which featured their meringues.
Below to the left is the Coffee meringue layers with coffee-whipped cream covered with crystallized meringues. To the right is the Praline which consisted of hazelnut praline whipped cream covered with caramelized praline feuilletines. Le Mervetty also featured their Speculoos and the Nutella.
Plan Check Kitchen + Bar featured two different refreshing cocktails that were perfect for the sunny weather. Above to the left was a strawberry infused with Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey, balsamic vinegar topped with Aperol foam. To the right was a strawberry infused Buffalo Trace with lemon juice and basil. Plan Check has three different restaurants in Los Angeles serving modern American comfort food with distinctive cocktails, premium whiskeys and craft beers.
Mahalo Spirits Company sponsored Angels Envy Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey and Pilar Rum. Angels Envy used Rhubarb bitters to delight their cocktail while Pilar Rum used Elemakule Tiki bitters.
Le Ka Restaurant & Lounge featured a punch and some hors d’oeuvres. The punch was made with Pisco Porton, fresh lemon, orange, honey, peach bitters and topped with Riesling
Le Ka is located on 6th Street in Downtown Los Angeles. They are open for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Their tasty hors d’oeuvres were crab beignets with powdered bacon topped with raw romesco and smoked albacore sashimi with charred onion, kombu-soy garnished and opal basil.
The VIP area was definitely the talk of the Greystone Mansion. Lawry’s Catering was honored to be a part of this spectacular day!
