The Buttermilk Truck & Hotel Shangri-La Sunset Soiree


Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Sunset Soiree celebration for The Buttermilk Truck's brunch partnership with Hotel Shangri-La in Santa Monica. Beloved in LA and featured on a national scale thanks to the Cooking Channel and Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine, this popular food truck has perfected the red velvet pancake. Yeah, you read that right. Red.Velvet.Pancakes. 

The collaboration between The Buttermilk Truck and Hotel Shangri-La is going to be pretty magical. Instead of following the truck to get these tasty treats (because sometimes you need an immediate sweet fix) you can enjoy them for brunch in the beautiful setting of the Santa Monica seaside hotel any time you want starting June 22. 




Don't live in LA? Don't fret! Starting Saturday you can buy their delicious red velvet pancake mix on The Buttermilk Truck's Web site or purchase it at Surfas, Bristol Farms and Sur La Table starting in August for a little over $10 a can. Great deal!

I used to nanny for my sister part-time when she lived in LA so I spent half my week in SD and half there. Whenever I could, I went to Santa Monica to walk around and soak in the coolness. What a really great place to have a party and good food.

The Buttermilk Truck and their red velvet pancakes is something I am dying to try ever since seeing it on Eat St. That's awesome that the mix is available.

Yum! I've never had red velvet anything, besides my wedding shower cake, which did not taste good. Pancakes sound amazing though. Pretty, pretty sunset picture!
