Chefs are wonderful. #lasvegas #foodie #Chefs

In the midst of the happenings of Las Vegas, sending big love and shout outs to you all who live and work in a city we all come to for celebrations and conferences. Stay strong. Love you. Thank you for making many moments in our lives so wonderful. So I’m sharing some goodness about you all in the service industry and a great city that I have loved since turning 21 there.

Tattoos, a badass Chef, and a blowtorch make me… well, let’s just say excited.

A month ago Chef Shaun King at Momofuku Las Vegas treated us to an amazing Chef tasting dinner. You are mind blowing and thank you for one of the best meals I’ve ever had.

Nothing like having Wagyu beef cooked with a blowtorch tableside on a Himalayan salt block. The rest of the dinner was nothing less than exquisite.

The highlights…

Pork Belly “Dogs” — hoisin, scallion, cucumber with SSAM Sauce (drinkable, OMG)

Ultra-rich (like buddah) bigeye tuna with shaved foie gras

Family style — Shrimp, lobster, crab katsu extravaganza


Momofuku Las Vegas is gorgeous. Glass, wood, steel, concrete and David Choe’s huge mural artwork inspired by restauranteur and Chef, David Chang’s dogs makes for a stunning setting. And this Midwestern girl loves a lazy susan in the middle of the table. We were spinning that thing hard all night.

Big thank you to Chef Shaun King, you rock and smooch to Chef Matthew Cloyes for connecting all of us and Edmund Cronin for having the most talented, sexy foodie friends ever. I’m keeping you. Oh, what a night, great to celebrate with my FlightWave Aerospace Systems colleagues post InterDrone.

Thank you for giving some claps if you liked this. :)
