Dreams of Champagne and Caviar: Luxurious Spread Awaits Guests at Symphony Fundraiser

CHAMPAGNE AND CAVIAR flowed as 20 chefs took part in the first annual La Nuit Du Caviar event to benefit the Houston Symphony League.


Three hundred guests were greeted with frozen martinis by chef David Skinner of star restaurant Eculent in Kemah, then sampled bites from top chefs. Each creation included the ingredient of the day of the evening: caviar. Creations ranged from prawn dumpling from Phat Eatery – topped with a scoop of healthy caviar – to vanilla ice cream mixed with caramel syrup and caviar from the Uptown hotspot Turner’s.

As guests enjoyed live music from the Houston Symphony, they voted for their favorite bite of the night. Chef Jassi Bindra of Amrina in the Woods served a caviar crisp with yellowfin tuna, avocado and Granny Smith apple, winning the grand prize.

The event honored Houston restaurant celebrities Mimi and Robert Del Grande and Benjamin Berg for their contributions to the city’s culinary scene, as well as Houston Symphony President John Rydman and his wife Lindy for their work with various cultural institutions. of Houston. The event is a spin-off of the popular Truffle Masters dinner, held annually.
