Haute Bites

| January 8, 2013 | Parties

Riviera gathered Orange County’s most celebrated chefs (think the likes of Yvon Goetz, Alessandro Pirozzi, Jonathan Blackford and Alfred Prasad, to name just a few) at Costa Mesa’s hip OC Mart Mix to compete for bragging rights—and help raise much-needed funding for JDRF’s Orange County Chapter. The culinary masters served up tastings of their best creations—lobster ravioli, pork belly and ceviche (the latter among the favorites of the night, courtesy of Posh). The grazers—including Tracy Vaughan, James Morrison, Jennifer Condas and Alice Kim Cowell—cast their votes by way of golden coins, and the winnings went to The Ranch Restaurant’s Michael Rossi, who tantalized taste buds with his sea bass filet over risotto. A delicious night, indeed. Photos by Xuong Do of Happy Photos and Omar Nazif
