Our last activity with Bertolli was a quaint meet and greet with none other than Rocco DiSpirito.  Our limo drove us to the beautiful Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire Hotel where we would meet Rocco for a “small bites” dinner at the gorgeous Culina Restaurant.  What a beautiful place it was.  Everything was just perfect there.  Take a peek at our time with Rocco   Thanks Bertolli!

Lovely restaurant!  Photo by Pat

I had to snap a picture of the fancy water we were poured

Before I took a bite, you better believe I had to get a good shot of this work of art!! Involitini De Manzo=Pure heaven!!  Thank you Chef Victor!

Oh man this was good too!  I snapped this photo of Caponata Di Carciofi….baby artichokes, this was really good too

This was probably my favorite!  Suppli Al Telefono….. Risotto and mozzarella?  Incredible!

Here is Chef Victor Casanova, he is incredible!  Rocco asked if he’d bring out the slab of Kobe beef to show us.  That square of beef is worth a small fortune!  Photo via Amanda.

Pretty!

Kobe beef in all it’s glory
