LOS ANGELES, CA (January 6, 2018) – Hollywood has long been inspired by the sports industry and vice versa, but rarely do these two worlds have the chance to mix and mingle. On Saturday January 6, 2018, Los Angeles again welcomed some of the greatest athletes from across the world to celebrate during one of the year’s most Golden weekends. The fifth anniversary event also wished luck to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games athletes, who will begin competing the following month. As the longest continuous corporate partner of the Olympic Games, “Gold Meets Golden 5” was presented by The Coca-Cola Company, and produced by CW3PR’s Charley Cullen Walters and the HFPA’s Scott Orlin.
The concept for the daytime brunch began when athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games were surprised by shout-outs from their favorite Hollywood celebrities, and several of those athletes were invited to Hollywood Awards season. The outcome was “Gold Meets Golden” – a chance for Gold Medalists and other athletes to engage with some of entertainment’s best award nominees, and realize how much they inspire one another.
To celebrate its historic connection to Hollywood and a 90-year association with the Olympic Games, The Coca-Cola Company transported guests through time to experience the history and impact of the Olympic movement. The iconic brand proudly displayed a rare collection of Olympic-themed memorabilia throughout the venue, celebrating historical connections to past-and-present Olympic greats and Hollywood icons. As the presenting sponsor of the Olympic Torch Relay, rare Olympic torches were on display. Guests were also be treated to eclectic culinary creations and Coke-themed food pairings by award-winning celebrity chef Cat Cora, including caviar in mini gold eggs and a gold-infused chocolate fountain.
Cat will host two demos and meet and greets at Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival.
Join her on Friday, October 27th and Sunday, October 20th from 9:45 -11:45 AM.
An inaugural event organised by Resorts World Sentosa and Savour Events, “THE GREAT FOOD FESTIVAL” will be Singapore’s largest curated food and lifestyle event, showcasing the region’s most expansive array of culinary and lifestyle trends all in one location.
Event Dates: 21 – 24 September 2017
Time: 11am – 10pm
Venue: Resorts World Sentosa
Cat Cora will be visiting Mesa Burger on August 29th
315 Meigs Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93109
Celebrity chefs and entrepreneurs Cat Cora and Carla Hall took the BlogHer17 main stage to discuss career, personal triumphs and setbacks, and advice for budding entrepreneurs—and there couldn’t be a more fitting duo to spark the conversation. Cora was the first woman to be named Iron Chef American and has opened 18 restaurants throughout her career. Hall rose to prominence as a contestant on Top Chef and has since authored two books and become a co-host on ABC’s The Chew. Ahead, five more things we learned about the two at Blogher17.
They’re proud of their Southern roots
Hall was born and raised in Nashville and Cora grew up in Jackson, Miss. Although Cora loves the South, she knew she needed to leave to find the opportunities she was looking for. “I grew up with two parents who were beautifully liberal and educated and wanted me to see the world,” Cora said. “That’s what led me on my journey to first going to college and getting a degree and then to getting into the culinary world and landing in France.”
The hits keep coming even as there are less than two weeks to go.
Today we announced some awesome additions to our schedule.
First, I am just thrilled to announced that celebrity chef Cat Cora will sit down with Carla Hall as part of Carla’s previously announced Saturday lunchtime fireside chat. Renowned as an Iron Chef, author, and restauranteur, Cat will bring her own tales of highs and lows to the conversation, as she and Carla dish (pun intended) and compare notes on their respective journeys. I’ve actually tried to get Cat to #BlogHerFood several times in the past, so this a total personal bonus for me to have her joining us 🙂
