On Friday, Las Vegas we treated to an evening of exceptional food in a town that is already known for its fantastic eating.
The world renown chefs that are part of Caesar’s put their talents on display for ticket holders on the first night of Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit Masters Dinner Caesars.
Bobby Flay, one of the world’s best known chefs, hosted an intimate “Spices of Life” dinner at Mesa Grill. In true Bobby Flay style, the meal was comprised of four dishes with seven different chilli peppers. Flay was joined by Editor-in-Chief of Bon Appétit Adam Rapoport who told the crowd, “He knows chilies; that’s what he does.”
Flay also surprised the guests by changing the dessert from what was listed on the menu. He had originally planned to serve crème brulee, but decided to finish off the meal with a chocolate tart wrapped in a unique pretzel crust. The salty and sweet concoction with a little bit of spice did not disappoint. Chef Flay answered questions, made jokes and chatted with his dinner guests. One gentleman told him that he makes great habanero wings and Flay responded, “Are you ready for a wing throwdown?”
