Cs may not look so great on a report card, but they're definitely the cool cats at BloggerProm. On top of Yamashiro's menu of delectable bites by Chef Brock, we also have a number of specialty food vendors (coincidentally all starting with the same letter) dishing out delightful desserts and cheeses throughout the BloggerProm evening, including . . .
ChocolateBox Café, whipping out a variety of cocoa-loaded delights, including truffles, ganaches and buttermilks!
Crumbs Bake Shop will bringing mini cupcakes in some of their best-selling signature flavors.
And representing the foodtrucky town that is LA, Coolhaus will be serving their (in)famous ice cream sandwiches in an edible wrappers! All delicious & no mess.
Last but not least (especially if you prefer savories to end the night) the much-loved Barrie Lynn, a.k.a. The Cheese Impresario, will be making a comeback with a variety of delicious cheeses, here's a little sneak peek of what to expect from her:
What I’ll be Doing at This Year’s Blogger Prom
Barrie Lynn – The Cheese Impresario will be creating an Interactive Artisanal Cheese Pairing Adventure Experience for the Bloggers. I’ll have cheeses and some unusual accompaniments that the Bloggers can play with to see what they personally love. I’ll be featuring cheeses made by the Artisan Cheesemakers of Wisconsin. Here’s one of them, who is a hero of mine.
Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker Joe Widmer of Widmer’s Cheese Cellars is a third generation cheesemaker. He’s a fine artist whose medium is cheese. Joe is one of only 45 Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers who have passed this state’s rigorous standards . . . much like a Master Sommelier program. I’ll be serving Joe’s famous Aged Brick Cheese, a washed rind cheese in the shape of a brick. It’s creamy, nutty with big flavor and a sweet finish. Joe uses his same Grandfather’s bricks to press the whey out of the curds to make this luscious cheese.
Having said all that, consider this a forewarning that no matter what theme-appropriate attire you'll be wearing, be sure to leave a little space for your belly to fill up -- popped buttons and ripped seams aren't all that glamorous.
