Laguna Hills, CA (PressExposure) August 29, 2014 -- For Immediate Release:
Chef Molly Wows Industry Insiders Creating Edible Art Installation
Industry insiders were wowed at the Chef Molly 'Exposed' event and Edible Art Installation at the Jim Kennedy Photography Studios in Costa Mesa! Chef Molly Culinary Artistry has been known as an elite caterer in Orange County for over 15 years, impressing clients with her artisanal cuisine and attention to detail, but on this special evening she ventured into performance art with a presentation that provided sensory gratification as well as visual pleasure.
The one-night event was laced with innuendo, from its theme "Chef Molly 'Exposed'" to a modern day pin-up girl greeting guests with signature cocktails, White lychee Sangria and Hibiscus Infused Syrup and Vodka as they entered Jim Kennedy's ultra sexy photography studio. The scene was set replete with boudoir sets, silk covered beds, and white rose petals. Guests enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvre including: Boneless Osso Bucco with Risotto and a Poached Quail Egg, Heirloom Tomato Tartlets, Pressed Duck with Okinawan Potatoes and a Raspberry Ginger and Lime Leaf Glaze, Tea Smoked Rock Fish, and a Green Papaya Salad. The crowd, a who's who list of hospitality industry insiders, was already impressed; but the show was just beginning.
Upon a gleaming stainless steel table, Chef Molly began with the introduction of Gravlax, a Nordic dish consisting of cured salmon. A skilled teacher, she displayed the steps in the curing process with a side-by-side comparison of the uncured fish and the finished delicacy cured in beets, orange zest, fennel dust and fresh dill. Working to a soundtrack she personally selected, the Chef worked silently, painting the table with spiced labneh (Lebanese strained yogurt), covering the surface in swirls and arcs with an artist's flare. Using a combination of pickled baby sunburst and zucchini squash, fresh radish, candy striped beets and fresh Bunashimeji mushrooms, bulls blood and arugula micro greens, Chef Molly added pops of color and texture to the display. As she placed the finishing touches, warm triangles of tahini bread, the party goers burst into a rousing round of applause!
The idea of art as food continued through dessert as guests dined on elegantly displayed Cherry, Chocolate and Almond Biscotti, Forbidden Black Coconut Rice with Grilled Mango, Fig Moscato Chomeur Cake and Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches filled with Fresh Mint Ice Cream!
Chef Molly Culinary Artistry continues to innovate and push the boundaries of how delicious food is viewed. She is a founding member of WIPA (Wedding Industry Professionals Association), former President of ISES-OC (International Special Event Society, Orange County), a regular contributor to Food & Event industry magazines, and a mentor to young chefs!
