Helping you plan your upcoming Smog Shoppe event by making it easy on you. 

I know I’ve said this a million times, but it bears repeating: our Los Angeles wedding catering company is right across the street from one of the best event spaces in Los Angeles, The Smog Shoppe!  So, when couples and companies come in to see us and say they’re having a wedding or company event across the street, we get gitty!  We love that we’re closer than any other Los Angeles wedding caterer to the Smog Shoppe.  We’ve done a ton of events over the years with the Smog Shoppe (and their sister location, The Marvimon House and The Millwick), and we love working with them.  We love their dedication to sustainable design,  we love the atmosphere they create for celebration, and our proximity to one another makes event planning a breeze for everyone involved, including our recent client, the Landry Design Group.

The Smog Shoppe Event Space

The first thing clients look for when planning a Los Angeles wedding is the venue.  One of my absolute favorite venues in Los Angeles is the Smog Shoppe.  Smog Shoppe events seem to be a little more fun and exciting than the others.  There’s just something special about the layout and the vibe of the indoor/outdoor wedding venue that gets people in a swinging mood. A Smog Shoppe wedding or event is also great because clients have both indoor and outdoor spaces all in one spot.  It’s also a eco friendly!  They have solar panels, reusable rain water tanks, and its made of recycled materials.  The Smog Shoppe is a great venue for your green wedding or corporate event. i-bk9bJBX-XL

Eco Caters

The all-organic and locally sourced Los Angeles catering company is a perfect match with the Smog Shoppe.  The Eco Caters kitchen is located directly across the street from the venue making it a breeze.  Eco Caters also does tons of events with the Smog Shoppe and the two have a great relationship with one another.

Marston House Museum & Gardens

Marston House is a great place for anyone in the San Diego area looking for a wedding venue. One of California's finest examples of the Arts and Crafts movement, the Marston House was constructed in 1905 for George W. Marston and his wife, Anna Gunn Marston. George Marston is noted for many things but most prominently as a civic leader whose interest and work in historic preservation, conservation and history is well known. The property was designed and built by the internationally renowned architects William Sterling Hebbard and Irving Gill. Surrounded by five acres of rolling lawns, manicured formal gardens, and rustic canyon gardens, this 8,500 square-foot home became a house museum in 1987 after the Marston family gifted it to the City of San Diego for the enjoyment of the public. Spend some time exploring the grounds, formal gardens and canyon pathways in the shade of towering pine, eucalyptus and oak trees. Learn about one of San Diego's most prominent families and the master architects and landscape designers who worked with the family to create one of the region's most important estates.

    [post_content] => 2912cd8621b4dee7d82d1d1ae724954fCookbook review of Sauces: Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making, by James Peterson.

I am no Chef, but definitely a foodie.  Who isn’t nowadays?  Whether we admit it or not, we all want to be as cool as Anthony Bourdain when it comes to dining out, and as skilled as a five star chef in our own kitchen. But as much as we daydream about having a sophisticated palate and a skilled hand with a sauté pan, the honest truth is that most of us will never have a truly adventurous appetite, or impress anyone with our cooking skills.  The world of cooking seems too daunting and complex to have someone take the time and teach you the ropes…  And then this cooking book by James Peterson fell into my lap!

Sauces: Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making, by James Peterson, is an in-depth and comprehensive book about cooking.  More specifically how to make sauces, but it’s much more than a collection of recipes (like any other cookbook).   This cookbook reads more like a biography  - a great one too!  I started reading this book in bed before I’d doze off and found that I couldn’t put it down!

The book is well written and starts off with a fascinating history of cooking: how cooking has evolved from the Greek empire, through the medieval period, and into modern day.  It shares great insight into what to look for when purchasing ingredients at the grocery store. It highlights tips on keeping food fresh, how to dry your own spices, and how to freeze homemade stocks for dinners to come.  It explains how to cook the most incredible sauces in the most down-to-earth way.  This book has gotten me excited to cook at a higher level and it has improved my dishes!

This book hooked me in like a good novel, and it will always be referenced in my kitchen like a handy bible.  I can’t imagine that there are too many cookbooks out there that are juicy enough to read from cover to cover, and I know there are few as comprehensive as this one. If you want to improve your cooking skills Sauces: Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making, by James Peterson, is the best cookbook you can find.  This cookbook has a lifetime of recipes and wisdom in it, and I can’t endorse it more enthusiastically.   It’s a great introduction to anyone wanting to learn how to cook, and its reference guide for anyone one who’s professional trained.  Go get it!
