Before departing from Los Angeles, we got together with some of our favorite local bloggers, designers and generally fashionable ladies for dinner at Heirloom LA!

We enjoyed a multi-course dinner highlighting ingredients from Heirloom’s backyard garden.

Chef Matt Poley talked us through the full meal, noting specific ingredients and cooking and plating the dishes right in front of the group! He was full of knowledge about the items we were eating—for example, after being picked numerous times, kale grows back as a flowery plant rather than one with leaves. When cooked, it tastes a bit like broccoli!

We had a wonderful time exchanging stories with the group about our travels on the Class Trip, exciting things coming up with us (like our retail store!) and their own work.
