I came with my taste buds prepared but I forgot to bring Joey’s Thanksgiving pants to the Kosher Food & Wine Experience Los Angeles (KFWELA). When you’re used to eating clean, a food expo can be a bit overwhelming. Good thing, everything was kosher!
KFWELA held at the Petersen Automotive Museum is a foodie and wine lover wonderland featuring delicious dishes by Los Angeles’s top chefs and over 300 wines across the globe.
A favorite of the night was the gourmet delicacies prepared by Tierra Sur, a New American restaurant located in the Herzog Winery. The Tierra Sur dishes included fried chicken over sticky and wild rice, chili braided lamb over cornbread cake topped with pickled jalapeños carrots and butternut squash eggplant tagine with fried chickpeas over flatbread. Yum.
There were so many wines to choose from but my drink of choice for the night was Drappier Brut Champagne Carte Blanche. This light and sprightly champagne is now my favorite bubbly! Also, I tried a liquor called Boukha Bokobsa, a sweet and spicy fig brandy originating from Tunisia.
The dessert selection by Schwartz Bakery was a course all its own.
Not to mention how stylish it was to be surrounded by so many luxury, vintage and customs automobiles.
I wore a Reformation lace cropped top with a high neck and ruffle edged shoulders (here) and a black zipper skirt by Sandro (on sale here) to the event. I’m obsessed with all things laced and love the concept behind Reformation. Reformation designs their collections in downtown Los Angeles and they source sustainable fabrics and vintage garments. Sandro has been one of my favorite Parisian designers.
