Will You Love Live & Dine at the Fairmont Miramar?


Did I love Live & Dine 2017?

Yes I did! I explored the tasty food treats with my friends Amy and Latifah as we wandered the beautiful grounds of the Fairmont Miramar  in Santa Monica. Angeleno Magazine from Modern Luxury celebrates the best chefs of Los Angeles and beyond each summer. We ate, we danced, we learned and we took photos with models!

It is always great to see friendly faces! I enjoyed seeing Chef Curtis Stone, Chef Kaleo Adams and of course, Chef Yousef Ghalaini!
