Laksa, Santa Monica Night Breeze:

Chef Amys Underground Dinner

 

By _____

As we walked to the home in Santa Monica Hills on that breezy evening, I fell in love with the modern house. One of the coolest things about some underground dinners is the locations that they are held (of course, some are smaller in scale and are held at the chef's house). The sleek and spacious house that night's dinner was held at belongs to the brother in law of Chef Amy Jurist of Amy's Culinary Adventures.

 

The decoration was provided courtesy of Jonathan Fong from Clever Floral Decor.

 

I like the colorful fortune cookies, and the embroidered chinese take-out floral arrangement!

 

Chef Amy Jurist and her team were furiously preparing the food. Thankfully, the house had a pretty big kitchen.


When we walked in, I noticed Joshua Klapper of La Fenêtre wines, whom I had just met for the first time at his fifth anniversary tasting. Coincidentally, he had met Chef Amy and he was doing the wine pairing for this dinner.

The night started with a sweet, fruity blended cocktail made with Filipino calamansi juice, mango, vodka.
