The California Avocado Commission was a sponsor of Fitbloggin’ 15. They hosted a is was a limited attendance lunch on Saturday that I signed up for in advance.
It was held at Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen, a Chef Jennifer Jasinski restaurant about 1/2 mile away from the hotel. It was a pleasant walk over and back.
I believe there were six tables set for 10 with menus waiting at each place setting.
I loved how avocados were used in the table decor. We ordered beverages. I had a nice iced tea that was unusual but have forgotten now the ingredients. 🙁
After the beverages were delivered we ordered our entrees and then the meal began.
The salad was awesome. I ate everything except some of the trumpet mushrooms (not a fan).
While having this course Chef Jen shared information about the meal and introduced some of her team. I don’t watch Top Chef but apparently she was in the finale of Top Chef Masters in 2013. After having a meal here I can see why!
Jan, Marketing VP at California Avocado Commission, briefly spoke. This was her second year at FitBloggin and I loved that she attended the sessions with us and really got to understand the community.
I had the roasted Petaluma chicken breast and it was delicious. I could have licked my plate to every last drop of the au jus. When we were all full, then came the dessert.
Normally the chocolate part of the dessert would have been the star for me but not this time. The coconut avocado ice sorbet was to die for! It was so creamy and tasty I would have eaten a quart if they gave it to me.
It was an awesome meal with awesome people!
A look down the table…
On the way out we all got a lovely reusable bag filled with goodies including my favorite California fruit, avocados!
It was a lovely walk back to the hotel in time for the afternoon sessions.
I’m looking forward to connecting with this brand again in the future.
