House French 75 from The Corner Door, Culver City

I had the good fortune to attend a food blogger/writer event in support of Planned Parenthood’s Food Fare at The Corner Door in Culver City, California. The Corner Door is one of a number of “neighborhood” Los Angeles Restaurants that are taking bar drinks and bar food to new heights. The combination of Chef Luke Reyes in the kitchen and Mixologist Beau du Bois behind the bar is first rate. They are both skilled craftsmen who are fiercely professional and committed to a top-notch dining and drinking experience. They presented a number of food/drink pairings at the event I attended. I thought the pairings were original, thoughtful and delicious. This recipe is for one of the drinks Beau prepared. It was paired with an Agnolotti filled with grilled cauliflower and fontina cheese. If you don’t have pounds and pounds of Agnolotti just lying around, this drink would pair nicely with a mild fish dish, or light pasta with a mild tomato sauce, or a light cream sauce. You could also serve this with an appetizer cheese course. Thanks again to Chef Luke and Mixologist Beau for both the great blogger/food writer event and for their generous support of PPLA’s Food Fare. I’ll be back at The Corner Door soon. Cheers!
