At the start of August, Project by Project hosted its 15th annual Plate by Plate charity tasting benefit at the California Science Center’s Wallis Annenberg Building, which, coincidentally, was where the first Plate by Plate that I attended back in 2010 was held. If you’re not familiar with the organization, Project by Project is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit centered on issues related to the Asian-American community, one that’s celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. As is always the case, the tasting showcased the talents of some of LA’s top restaurants, as well as beverages from a variety of purveyors, so let’s get into it:
PbP Marketing Team Member Martin Kwok (on crutches), as well as PbP Manager of Past Partner Relations Cathy Hong.
R: Most of PbP’s Fundraising team: Manager of Corporate Relations Peter Yun, Director of Fundraising Eileen Ung, Manager of Auction Donations Anny Chien, Fundraising Team Members Jenelle Yee and Kevin “Little” Ung. ]
L: Hubert’s Lemonade was last year’s “Best Beverage” winner, and the team was back for a second helping.
R: Coincidentally, right next door was Sotto, which ended up winning the top spot this year. Bar Director Brynn Smith and Noe Garcia definitely delivered with their cocktail, the Miele di Nettare (Tito’s Vodka, Lemon, Honey, Meletti Amaro).
