Who loves a great dinner party! Time to connect … eat … drink … enjoy. We are all foodies at heart! I don’t care what you say! You may eat differently than me, but you can’t tell me you don’t like a delicious meal, no matter the calorie count. (Can you tell I have adjusted my diet recently? lol) roomforty
is definitely THE place for the modern LA foodie!
That is what I love about weddings and events these days…food is no longer boiled, grilled, stuffed, dry, boring chicken! YES!!! Thank you to whoever made that shift happen! The joke used to be what kind of chicken are we having tonight! I am so excited for all of you; now you have amazing options when it comes to food.
And let me tell you, Roomforty … YUMMMMM!!!!! I have had the pleasure of photographing several of these popup dinners and they are so fun. They are what made me fall in love with the gang at roomforty
But, you know what I love best about roomforty – I mean other than the food, the passion and love and soulfulness from the kitchen prep to the serving? They don’t just cook and serve food. These guys want you to have an experience with the food. Now that is what I am talking about. Life truly is all about the experiences, not just the results, but how those experience really make us feel, think, react and remember.
That is why roomforty
and I are a match made in heaven. We both want you to experience more than just food or photos. We want you to have a genuine experience and remember every detail. It’s everything you’ve dreamt of, right?
One of the favorite questions ever asked of me by one of the lovely people at roomforty is, “What was your favorite childhood dish and why?” My answer, while a little embarrassing, was so intriguing. It made me think of things I hadn’t thought of in years. Who knew that food could produce so many thoughts, memories and feelings.
Oh you are still waiting for my answer. Ok, I will share if you do. Go ahead, leave a comment below with your favorite food. OK, indulge me for a few minutes.
My favorite dish is fried chicken. I swear I would order it every meal if I could! You ask what does this have to do with my childhood? Well, my favorite food as a kid was McDonalds’ chicken nuggets and KFC chicken strips. (OK, don’t judge.) There are many happy memories associated with these trips to KFC and MickyD’s. I can’t pinpoint why, but it brings me joy to think about these times as a kid. Thank goodness my pallet has matured, but I still love some fried chicken occasionally!
No, my parents didn’t have me living off of these meals, but they were very, very young and trying to juggle a child and a career in addition to growing up themselves. I spent many evenings at my grandmother’s house. Whenever my parents asked what I wanted for dinner before heading off to my grandmother’s … I swear it was always KFC!
When I was very young, it was always MickyD’s, or so goes the story my dad will tell you! He tells of a time I was being rewarded for something I had accomplished when I was five years old. My dad asked me, “What do you want for dinner, you can have anything you want.” My response? “McDonalds chicken nuggets.” My dad swears he tried very hard to get me to eat anything else, but I held my ground … haha!
Ok, now I want to hear yours. Seriously, when you’re done reading this post, you’ve just GOT to tell me what your favorite food was when you were growing up! OK, I’ve been talking a lot about one of the most common American food dishes. Let me show you a few more examples of the amazing food the crew at roomforty can put together for your next event.
