Sacramento Bloggers Gets a Taste of CPK’s Next Chapter

by Margaret on April 24, 2014

Some of our bloggers attended a “Taste the Next Chapter” event at California Pizza Kitchen’s recently renovated location at Arden Fair Mall Wednesday night to get a taste of their newest menu additions. Okay, “taste” is putting it lightly. It was a 12+ course meal!

We met and mingled with CPK’s SVP of Culinary Innovation, Brian Sullivan. And our bloggers had a great opportunity to hang out and get to know each other better.

Chef Sullivan shared their new delicious hand-crafted cocktails, flatbreads (hello, lobster!), entries such the juicy Fire-Roasted Rib eye and the Hearth Roasted Halibut, and my-oh-my, the desserts!

Kitchen Manager, Adrian, took us “behind the counter” where they taught us how to toss pizza dough – how fun is THAT!
