11/30/09 Petrossian Industry Night 2.0

Chef Ben Bailly was kind enough to invite L.A. food bloggers to Petrossian’s “Industry Night”, a special evening just for folks in the food industry (including chefs, servers and bartenders). Low cost drinks included $3 beer, $5 wine, and my favorite, the $7 hibiscus champagne. It was simply a fun evening chatting with friends old and new, and the best part was the selection of FREE delicious appetizers!

  1. One of the more stand out experiences I had at the LA Food & Wine event in Malibu earlier this Summer was tasting caviar from Petrossian, served in a neat little pile on a squishy potato blini. It was lush, incredibly mild, and accompanied by a really interesting story.

    I can’t remember who I spoke with, but he explained that they actually farm raise these Rainbow and Golden trout in the South of France. They so tightly monitor these fish that it reminded me of why I fell in love with sustainable farming in the first place. It’s good to know that people are taking great care of the animals that are providing our food.

    Very nice photos and series of posts, Jo. I feel so lucky that we’re exposed to so many extraordinary purveyors of the finer food items nature provides for us. I’m a sucker for caviar. When I have it, I want to have a lot of it. I really appreciate that Petrossian is providing high quality caviar like this. It’s comforting to know there’s still a high demand for it.
