Who would have ever known this elegant property constructed in 1928 would exist on this side street in Koreatown? The Carondelet House with its hardwood floors, expansive rooms, exposed brick walls, courtyards, and fireplace made me think I was back in the east coast somewhere near DC, as about 30 women sipped cocktails surrounded by luxurious paintings and a grand piano. We were led into a beautiful room with a long rustic table as I learned from the the Weight Watchers corporate team that tonight was the last dinner on their city tour all over the USA dining at some of the most grand locations.
LaLaScoop was lucky to be invited to this pop-up dinner October 9 with Weight Watchers and celebrated Katsuya chef Jennie Trinh, that they found through KitchenSurfing. The sit-down dinner consisted of delicious, lighter options, with each plate featuring top-quality local organic ingredients. The dinner menu consisted of an impressive meal: Spicy Edamame, Asian Salad, melt in your mouth Local Miso Black Cod and Tofu Cheesecake.
Below you will find the chef’s Tofu Cheesecake recipe made from soy milk. At one point in the evening the whole table champagne toasted the chef and Weight Watchers planner. We met many new girls from NY and LA, and couldn’t ask for a more pleasurable night that consisted of red wine, white wine, and even saki pairings.
The dinner allowed us to experience the range of items that can be a part of an individual’s Weight Watchers weight loss plan and showed us how you can redefine your relationship with food while still indulging in some of your favorite meals.
