The Perfect Valentine: The Haute Chocolate Affair

Posted By Karen Young On January 30, 2011 @ 9:50 pm In Cooking Classes/Supper Clubs,Featured,Food,My Daily Find,spotlight | No Comments


Some of the best times I’ve had since launching My Daily Find have been evenings spent at Amy’s Culinary Adventure’s Decadent Underground Dinners — with innovative food and wine, cocktails, and wonderfully interesting guests.  For the next event, upcoming on February 12, Chef Amy Jurist is planning an evening of pure indulgence for the perfect Valentine treat —  whether you go solo, with your BFF, a date, or your significant other.   The theme is The Haute Chocolate Affair — a sit down, plated dinner that includes three passed appetizers, four courses, cocktails (Snickertini, anyone?), wine and live music.

The theme of the December dinner was Winter Wonderland at a La Brea Avenue photo studio that felt like being in Manhattan. Here guests mingle before dinner with appetizers and wine. Decor is designed by Jonathan Fong.

The venue is always a surprise until two days before, but I can tell you this — it’s going to be at a unique historic location in Hollywood.  Chef Amy’s menu, however,  is the main surprise.  Her intention for this dinner is to show that chocolate is more than just dessert, and with a combination of savory and sweet flavors, are main dishes as well. Amy is still concocting recipes, but some of her testing so far has included White Chocolate Beurre Blanc sauce, Chocolate Cabernet Sauce and Dark Chocolate Cherry Brioche.

Amy’s culinary niche is, as she likes to say, “rich, yummy decadent food.” Each themed dinner is a always a unique dining experience with 50 to 70 people, in different unexpected locations with spectacular themed decor by designer Jonathon Fong.

Amy prepared beets and goat cheese to look like ornaments at the Winter Wonderland dinner.

The price for the evening is $125 per person, but until  February 4, there is a early bird discount for $115.  MY DAILY FIND readers get an additional $20 off which brings it down to $95 pp.  Go to Amy’s Culinary Adventures and enter promo code mydailyfind.  Remember it includes four sit down courses, three appetizers, a cocktail, free flowing wine and music. Order tickets HERE.
