On September 28, not only will the Golden Foodie Awards honor the top cuisine in Orange County but the red carpet soiree will also unveil decadent samples of sips and sweets for guests to indulge. From sugary concoctions to bubbly libations, the awards show will provide an unprecedented culinary experience.

For those with a sweet tooth, Valenza Chocolatier, B. Toffee, and Casey’s Cupcakes will all be present for attendees to enjoy. Valenza Chocolatier will showcase their exclusive Golden Foodie Awards ‘Bonbons of Gold,’ which puts an adult spin on the traditional peanut butter cup, wrapped in a 23k edible gold dusted shell. The ‘Official Toffee of the Golden Foodie Awards,” B. Toffee, will offer samplings of delicious handcrafted fine-toffee confections. Casey’s Cupcakes will, once again present the official ‘Golden Velvet Cupcakes,’ red velvet cakes frosted and dusted with 24-carat gold dust and glitter. Scrumptious “gold kissed spheres” known as Golden Chocolate Rochers by the talented Pastry Chef Jeffrey Kahle of the Fairmont Newport Beach will also be available for sampling.

Delicious libations will be paired with the cornucopia of sweet treats. The golden bubbles of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne will be awaiting guests on the gala dining tables during the ceremony alongside Patron XO, Chambord and fresh roasted Kean Coffee. During the after party, Kean Coffee will serve a Golden Affogato at their Pour-Over Bar. This special combination of drink and dessert will consist of a shot of Golden Mean Espresso drizzled over After’s Artisan Vanilla Ice Cream then topped with Golden Caramel and speckled with Guittard Chocolate Shavings. The Fresh Patron Cocktail Bar will feature the famous Patron Tequila and nekter juices for those interested in an invigorating cocktail. A vibrant and tropical cocktail inspired by Belize, named “Kanantik” (which means “to take care” in Mayan Mopan) will be highlighted at the gala and is hand-crafted by Koire Rogers, Arc Restaurant, using fresh fruits native to Belize and Ketel One. A sweet and juicy seasonal fresh fruit bar by Melissa’s Produce will also be spotlighted.
