In the summer of 2019 in the Starlight we staged an incredibly delicious movie and meal event around the film CITY OF GOLD, the wonderful profile of Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold. This summer we aim to equal – if not surpass – that cinematic culinary event. Laura Gabbert, the director of CITY OF GOLD went on to make OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES.

Four years ago New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art enlisted Yotam Ottolenghi, the Israeli chef and celebrated cookbook author to organize a food gala inspired by the Met exhibit Visitors to Versailles. And Gabbert was there to record every delicious moment.

On Sunday, August 21st at 1:00 in the Starlight Room, we're presenting OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLE.

Admission ($45) includes a glass of prosecco and the following desserts meticulously prepared by Port Townsend baker Hanni Witzig from Ottolenghi's cookbook:

  • Citrus teacakes with lemon and fresh blueberries
  • Custard yo-yo cookies with smoked clove and ginger
  • White chocolate truffles with rose kesar mango
  • Little chocolate tarts with tahini sesame brittle
