Last week I was e-mailed to see if I’d want to hang with Wolfgang Puck over lunch at his restaurant, Steak at the MGM Grand Casino. How unreal, right?! I RSVP-ed with a “Hell yes” and started getting excited. On Thursday, Nicole (of Dula Notes) sent me a text and she was invited too! Best news ever. We had the best time.
When we arrived, we met Wolfgang and he invited us into the kitchen to drink wine and see how everything was prepped for our lunch together. I hung out at the salad station where this stacked dream was made. I was excited to see that the vinaigrette that was made was super similar to my go-to! Champagne vinegar forever! AND cheese sampling happened for real.
This was the part when Wolfgang (Whoa, first-name-basis up in here.) was saying to just add pesto to anything to make it tasty. He knows what’s up.
That fresh pasta was paired with pesto, lobster and flash-fried tomatoes. The whole frying thing was just so they could be peeled super easily. I took seconds of this, believe it!
I feel like I relate to this smiling photo of him so much! Putting that dreamy chimichurri on meat-y goodness would have you feeling happy too! Especially if you tasted it. I also liked how it was not pureed to death. Fresh like whoa.
Meat errywhere. Wolfgang liked to say that photos of food should be SUPER up close. You don’t argue with that dude. He approved of this photo. You can see it riiiiight here.
The dessert was a dreamy soufflé sitch served with a strawberry sauce of my dreams. I want to make it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was trying to type the name in my phone and it autocorrected to cloud cab… I’ll get back to you about it.
