Happy Summer Solstice, you guys! Now that summer is officially here, here’s a little something to get your appetite going for grilling season.

I recently was invited to a summer grilling preview of Wolfgang Puck’s upcoming seasonal menu. Not only were the bites and sips varied and scrumptious, but the Target Terrace at L.A. Live where the event was held really made for a stunning evening.

We enjoyed specialty cocktails and gourmet bites while overlooking the downtown L.A. skyline during sunset. It was a great escape from the rest of life for a few glorious hours! Here’s a little recap of some of the highlights of the evening:

Among small bites, the following were served:

  • Seared Scallop BLT with Pancetta, Cherry Tomato, and Micro Greens
  • Duck Rillettes with Peach Hoisin on Watermelon Radish
  • Grilled Bruschetta with Strawberries, Spinach and Almonds
  • Buffalo Chicharrónes with Buttermilk Bleu Cheese Mousse, Celery and Carrot
  • Texas Toast with Bone Marrow Butter and Pickled Onion
  • Bacon Candy with Brown Sugar and Chili Powder

From the grill, we had:

  • Prime Beef Sliders
  • Beer-Brined Whole Roasted Beer Can Chicken with Chimichurri Sauce
  • Grilled Kurobuta Pork Chops with Herb Butter and Polenta
  • Grilled Lobster with Black Garlic, Drawn Butter and Corn Puree
  • Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cilantro-Pesto Mayo, Cotija Cheese and Lime

The sizzling sides (some my favorites were from this station!):

  • Grilled Hearts of Romaine with Rustic Croutons and Creamy Caesar
  • Grilled Peaches with Heirloom Tomatoes and Burrata (A winner!)
  • Spring Pea Agnolotti
  • Summer Corn Agnolotti (I want more. Buckets more!)
  • Grilled Vegetable Gratin
