Prep, Cook, and Dine with Top Chef’s Dakota Weiss

If crowding a bar or waiting in line for a movie sound like an unappealing night out options, you can easily shake things up at the new “PREP.COOK.DINE” series at the W Los Angeles – Westwood. Starting next month, Top Chef alumna Dakota Weiss will spice things up in the kitchen with hotel guests and L.A. locals for an interactive, private cooking class. You can celebrate a special occasion or coordinate a fun treat with friends and family up to 8 people with a seasonal menu to prep, cook, and dine combined with custom cocktails and wine pairings to match the dishes. The menu for the first class is set to be a grilled artichoke appetizer with three dipping sauces; an entrée of whole roasted beef tenderloin with brown butter spring carrot puree, English peas and port wine reduction; and a dessert of roasted while chocolate and lemon-infused bread pudding with Voli Raspberry Cocoa vodka hard sauce. Way to whet our appetite!

The PREP.COOK.DINE series will be available April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, and August 8. For more information, please contact Stephanie Sanders at 310-443-8211 or
