Here it is. An inspiring idea for our hotels and big restaurants… Five star hotels tie up with small, local, artisans, bakers, and cooks and serve up local flavours in five star environs.
I get a delicious taste of this Flavor partnership series at Loews Hollywood. Thanks to Chef Mark I Ching, I meet 26 year old David Vanlochem of Duidough’s Cookie Lab who started off pushing a cart on Hollywood Boulevard and today owns a bakery. I taste his creations in this host hotel to the Oscars (connected with the winners walk corridor to the Oscars Dolby theatre.) I watch chef Mark add innovative touches and transform David’s addictive chocolate cookie into the “German Blondie”…named after superstar Marlene Dietrich. “Tasting Hollywood” gets redefined!
