Event description


Trap Door Dining, a dynamic pop-up dinner series held seasonally by chef Kenny Seliger, is continuing in Orange County with its Summer Dinner. Ingredients are locally-sourced and presented in a storytelling manner. Seliger hand-crafts every detail and the ingredients are never repeated more than once on the tasting menu with the exception of oil, salt and pepper. Trap Door dinners are meant to bring people together to appreciate thoughtful dishes, good conversation and unique settings.

The Summer Dinner's seven-course tasting menu, with a theme of "Fire + Grain", will be as locally-sourced as possible and will feature dishes comprised of California-grown ancient grains and various forms of local seafood. All food bound for the dinner, will be cooked over fire - either on a grill, or in cast iron.

The dinner will include all rosé wine pairings from boutique wine labels. A private residence in Laguna Beach, CA, will serve as the stylish backdrop for this dinner - which will only be served one evening, and will only accommodate 24 guests.
