The California Avocado Commission convened an event at BLD on March 12 to celebrate their favorite fruit, featuring chef Neal Fraser leading dish demos at the Mid-City restaurant he co-owns with wife Amy. While I enjoyed the chilaquiles, avocado soup, smoked salmon blini and pork shank Benedict, my favorite avocado course was the finale. While California Avocado Olive Oil Cake doesn’t exactly scream breakfast, I wasn’t about to complain. After all, the moist muffin-like cake joined creamy avocado mousse, a scoop of Mascarpone ice cream and crunchy peanut brittle, creating a collective punctuation mark.
