Last night I went to an event put on by the lovely Havriluk sisters and their venture, Indulge. Indulge brings the Bay Area food and wine scene to life, hosting monthly events in local restaurants to showcase culinary talent while bringing the food community together. I love these events as much for the exposure to new places and flavors as well as the opportunity to connect with friends over two of my favorite hobbies ... food and wine.
The event last night was hosted at La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, a strikingly scenic waterfront location. Just as striking were the tuna and halibut ceviches we enjoyed while mingling with other guests. Fiercely hungry after the event and eager to sample more of La Mar's menu, we ducked away to the bar area to order a couple dishes and savor another glass of Malbec. After a plate of empanadas and some arroz norteno (a rice and seafood dish, much like a Peruvian paella, flavored with cilantro and Huancaina sauce), I was ready to head home and reflect upon the indulgences of the day.
Thank you, Ali and Jordana, for helping me indulge myself once again!
