A Delectable Afternoon

Sepetember 13, 2009


If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that Pamela is my creative partner-in-crime. In the last two months, we have been happily photographing a variety of events and have been networking as much as possible. After shooting Joella’s dinner party, we became friends with Michael Kay of Kitchen 12000. When we received the email inviting us to shoot Yelp’s Sweet September Elite Party, we were delighted. The Sweet September Elite Party is a shindig strictly for Elite Yelpers.

The event was held at the Los Angeles Meeting & Event Center. There were several other photographers at the event. As such, Pamela and I coordinated with one another to ensure we had more well-rounded coverage of the event. Since Pamela’s forte is shooting people and atmosphere shots, she photographed the servers, make-up artists, and overall party. I covered the food and its preparation.

Here are the passed hors d’oeuvres

Crustless Pizza shooters – Buffalo Mozzarella Balls in Tomato and Tomatillo Bases

Chicken Breast Cubes with Thai Peanut Sauce

Grilled Pear with Sour Cranberry Reduction and Feta Crumbles

Smashed potato medley in filo shells with red onion marmalade and queso fresco

Seared Tuna topped with Seaweed Salad and Tobiko in Filo Shells

Open-faced ciabatta rounds topped with Asian Pulled Pork topped with Mango Cole Slaw

Citrus Soy Marinated Baby Portobello Mushroom caps filled with a 3 cheese blend topped with truffle oil
Yogurt Blend topped with Pop Rocks

Blueberry, Acai, and Mangosteen Juice with candied Ginger

Since this was Yelp-sponsored event, there was some awesome swag.

Kitchen 12000 had favors made-up to look like illegal paraphernalia. They were filled with oregano, sugar, and syringes filled with pomegranate syrup

  1. Just lovely! I really should have snacked more that afternoon, everything I missed out on looks delicious. I love seeing the teeny tiny details of each teeny tiny item, the lighting looks great and helps showcase the hard work of the K12000 crew.

  2. Yo killed it Anne. Great job capturing so many wonderful moments – not to mention the awesome food photos. Yo rock!
