This coming weekend in Laguna Beach, several great entities here are joining forces with Visit Laguna Beach, our Visitor’s Bureau, in a number of great culinary events. Titled Celebrate Great Taste: A Three-Day Culinary Adventure, the list is long and profuse! Speakers, food authors, special prix fixe menus, wine pairing events, the Gospel Champagne Brunch and more, more, more are happening between March 7th and March 9th.
Here’s a list of the Culinary Adventure events occurring with all the ticket pricing and information
And here’s more information on the Gospel Brunch (one event you definitely do not want to miss)
But THIS entry is about one of the more innovative entries for the weekend – A Masters of Malt Whiskey Dinner at the Loft at the Montage. (Ok, so maybe it’s because I’ve been a single malt fan forever, but I still think it’s one of the best entries on the weekend map!)
On Friday, March 7th, Chef de Cuisine Casey Overton will be joined by whiskey ambassadors from none other than Macallan, Kieron Elliott and Highland Park for a first annual Whiskey Dinner. They’ll be pairing their storied whiskeys with Chef’s innovative 4-course prix fixe menu designed just for the event. The Culinary Adventure begins at 6:00 p.m. with a reception, then adjourns to The Loft at 7:00 for the seated dinner.
Tickets for this Whiskey Dinner are already moving quickly at $125/person. RSVP direct to the Montage at (949) 715-6420. Advance reservations are definitely required! The hotel is also offering specials on night packages, and whiskey dinner tickets are complimentary for a two-night stay. See more details here.
