On October 29, 2016 Whim Hospitality participated in Lipton's Chef Fest an evening celebrating Mealtime Moments at Austin's Fair Market providing catering, florals and event rental services. The event featured host Chef Michael Symon cooking alongside celebrity chefs Andrew Curren and Amanda Rockman, and other local influencers creating an unforgettable family-style dining experience in an iconic Austin venue. Working alongside the event planner and other vendors, Whim Hospitality contributed to the overall feel of the event with a mix of peach and yellow flowers accented by large plants and succulents, and rentals that complemented the natural decor of the venue including bistro chairs, farm tables draped with chevron lemon linens and wood back bars.
Dinner, which was served family style featured the best of Chef Rob's cuisine including porcetta with soft palenta, crispy shallot and gruyere crusted chicken breast with white wine parsley butter, triple cheese macaroni with panko-parmesan crust, truffled asparagus, roasted local oyster mushrooms and pickled red onion and roasted butternut squash, kale and cranberry couscous. Guests sipped on a variety of Lipton teas and enjoyed family style desserts and a special lemon tea meringue tart, Chef Amanda Rockman's recipe.
