Taste of Beverly Hills
Last week Food & Wine Magazine hosted Taste of Beverly Hills to celebrate both the food of the city and the date, 9.02.10. There were hundreds of restaurants and vendors displaying all kinds of pastas, pizzas, meats, breads, cheeses, wines, and desserts!! Think of it as a classy all you can eat buffet - there was so much food it was scary. I don't think I've ever eaten this much in my life.
There was too much food to photograph, so I really kept it to desserts, but I had to share my two favorite savory foods of the night.
Rotolini Pasta with Truffle Oil, My favorite non-dessert dish, I went back for this 3 or 4 times...
Turkey Meatball with Peanut Cole Slaw, It's not on their regular menu but should be, it was so tasty.
