When we at Thrillist decided to create an immersive culinary experience we wanted to go big...all in... And somewhere in our fever dream, we knew it would be possible, nay, even plausible, to do a 100 Course Meal.
It would be daunting for anyone to finish off 100 dishes, but we knew our guests would be up for a dizzying foodie challenge. We tapped Michael Cirino of A Razor/A Shiny Knife to help bring this epic event to life. The meal focused on LA-based creations to celebrate the city’s incredible food, drinks and culture.
Rather than seat everyone at a table and bring food course by course, we devised a challenge for our guests to keep them eating, drinking, and moving all night long. The dishes were laid out on a massive table by local chefs and guests cycled through the table in groups of ten. The space also allowed guests to rove and enjoy the food in a “musical chairs”-style that satisfied their need for engagement, adventure, and amazing eats.
