Monterey, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
Rocky Mountain Elk Carpaccio, blood sausage sliders, lobster with green curry butter, dried beet and sea urchin, dark chocolate almond bark, and literally hundreds of wines to choose from … if any of this sounds good to you, Pebble Beach Food & Wine was the place to be in Monterey, or all of Northern California, this past weekend. Foodies from all corners flocked to the scenic California coastline for FOOD & WINE Magazine’s sixth annual event, which Classic Party Rentals has been proud to support for five years running.
While checking their diets at the door, visitors to this four-day scrumptious spectacle attended a dizzying array of luncheons, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, dinners and after-hours parties between April 4th and 7th. Event producer Coastal Luxury Management and location host Pebble Beach Resorts exposed visitors to some of the most imaginative and daring recipes in food today. Guests also had direct access to the methods and trade secrets of nearly 100 celebrity chefs, among them Guy Fieri, Jacques Torres and Cecilia Chiang, who was the subject of a Friday night tribute.
Classic Party Rentals’ 90,000 square feet of tenting, subfloor and ground cover were well-traveled territories, as guests marveled at all the offerings in the Grand Tasting tent.
“What a fabulous weekend that was truly enjoyed by all,” says Classic Party Rentals President & CEO Jeff Black, an attendee. “The Pebble Beach Food and Wine combines a great location, great venues, producers of incredible wine, and great chefs with excellent event production.”
Drew Barrymore, who brought Barrymore Wines’ trademark pinot grigio to the festivities, was spotted in Classic’s Imperial Lounge for an extended visit. The Imperial Lounge hosted friends of the Classic family and other well-wishers.
Classic’s San Francisco office spent months putting the event details in place for under the guidance of Event Consultants Kevin McAuliffe and Sue Leggett. The festival kicked off with an opening night reception at The Inn at Spanish Bay, and continued through to the Lexus Grant Tasting on Saturday and Sunday, with all sorts of activities sprinkled in between.
The consensus among the Classic team was that this was the smoothest Food & Wine yet.
“This year’s event definitely raised the bar of operational excellence with this ultimate food and wine event experience,” says Susan Kidwell, Classic’s Northern California Regional Vice President. “We are honored to be a partner.”
