Truly a bucket list affair, (M)EAT CARNIVAL encourages diners to focus on the food without the distraction of servers, napkins, tableware-or even tables!

“We smoke and grill La Brea Bakery’s artisan breads to accompany many of the dishes presented at the CARNIVAL,” said Abromovitch, owner of Blossom Catering, and ringmaster of the (M)EAT CARNIVAL. “The breads are the perfect foundation for our house-made “faux gras,” shakshuka, sabiches, and other flavorful dishes.”

Distinctly different

Each of the monthly (M)EAT CARNIVAL pop-up events will be distinctly different, as a team of 20 chefs showcase their interpretation of Mediterranean-American cuisine cooked over a live fire. Tickets include not only an abundance of samplings, but also an open wine bar and live musical entertainment.

“The Chefs have brought so much ingenuity and creativity to this event, it’s unbelievable. They have created the most unexpected and unique ways of delighting adventurous and curious food lovers.”
