Foodbeast's mission is obvious—we strive to offer value to our audience via the food-centric entertainment and information we provide via our food news stories, recipe videos, miscellaneous eating adventures, and of course, #foodporn. Some people are familiar with us from a mixture of all of these, while some know us best for one single channel. Above everything, you should know our hearts and souls lie with food—it's what wakes us up in the morning, and it's what sweetly tucks us into our beds every night.
We aren't very into the idea of taking the food on our plates for granted, because at the end of the day, we know that there are individuals in this world who can hardly even pay for their groceries. These same individuals do not have the means to keep their children in school regularly. These same individuals cannot even afford a home. And even more, these individuals are living right in our own backyard.
Being based in Santa Ana, we are incredibly aware of how many are affected by homelessness in our beloved Orange County. It hurts to see your own community, your own family, in such a painful situation. Hence, this is the premise for our Foodbeast Family Dinner series—we wanted to somehow bring together our community, our family, to show support for those who are struggling each and everyday just to make ends meet. And it just so happens that food is the perfect way to bring people together.
We knew that we wanted to specifically benefit the Project Hope Alliance for our first philanthropic dinner, as the Costa Mesa-based non for profit organization has worked tirelessly to end the cycle of homelessness for children and their families in Orange County for over 25 years. We also knew that Chef Linh Nguyen would be able to create the perfect menu for the evening, one built around a comfortable, family-style palette, yet was very much "Foodbeast-worthy."
Now all that's left is bringing our community—our family—together, at the dinner table. We cordially invite you to be a part of our family too, and show your support and strength for those who need it most. See the details of the dinner below:
Korean BBQ Style 6 Minute Scotch Egg
KBBQ makes everything better, even the incredible, edible egg. Welcome to Flavor Town, y'all.
Cajun Gumbo Pot Pie
Southern Comfort, comfortably concealed within a humble pot pie. There's also just a hint of kick to keep things spicy.
Bacon Wrapped Meat Loaf Moco Loco
Grilled Peach Bread Pudding with Sticky Toffee Caramel & Toasted Meringue
Apologies for not having some visuals here, but we're pretty sure you can only imagine what this dirty ditty is going to look/taste like—HEAVEN.
