A star-studded night of food, wine, sharing…and oversharing (in all the best senses of the word)

Back by popular demand! An epic multi-course dinner under the stars in the Hollywood Hills.

We are once again inviting each guest (or couple) to bring a special bottle of wine from their own cellar, along with a story (about the wine) to share! The sharing of “the story” combined with the epic location, defines THE HOLLYWOOD part of the evening. The bottle of wine itself does not need to break the bank, but the story about why you picked it is the most treasured part of the occasion. We share the wine with all 12 guests and laughter, tears, and memories commence.

Bob Blumer is internationally recognized, from his work on TV’s Food Network, as well as his 7 commercially successful cookbooks. I, Ian Blackburn, have a world of experience in wine to share and enjoy standing on Bob’s Hollywood Hills deck and feasting under the stars… and know you will love this as well. Bob is a worldly, practiced, and professional artisan and only works with the most seasonal ingredients from the Hollywood Farmer’s Market. I’ll be pairing each course with some of my favorite wines from our collection.

Dinner is limited to only 12 guests.

Reserve your tickets now. $395 per person, includes a 6-course dinner, with wine pairings + a copy of Bob’s cookbook Glutton for Pleasure (one copy per couple, or single ticket purchase).

Location will be revealed AFTER you have purchased a ticket.

No tickets available at the door.Proof of vaccination required.

Gastronaut, author, and eight-time Guinness World Record holder Bob Blumer is best known as the creator and host of Food Network’s award-winning shows Surreal Gourmet, Glutton for Punishment, and World’s Weirdest Restaurants. He has also written seven cookbooks in which he transforms ordinary ingredients into wow-inspiring dishes through simple cooking methods and whimsical presentations that have become his culinary trademark. His multi-award-winning 7th book Flavorbomb: A Rogue Guide to Making Everything Taste Better is a collection of the tricks, tips, hacks and techniques he gleaned as he ate his way around the globe for the past 25 years. The Toronto Sun says “Blumer once again pushes boundaries, but in a way that encourages readers to let go their own culinary hesitations to create simple meals built on layers of flavor.”
