2015 Gilroy Garlic Festival Garlic Showdown

2015 Garlic Showdown

Last year we competed against other professional chefs in the Garlic Showdown at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. This was true iron chef-style competition - we had no idea what food we have to cook with! Plus they added secret ingredients that we had to use five minutes after we started cooking. (Spam, white cucumber, Dole fruit cocktail, & squash blossoms) The event was hosted by celebrity chef Daphne Oz, co-host of ABC-TV’s “The Chew”. It was a great experience. We did not win the competition but we gave it one hell of a try. That was the most intense one hour of cooking we ever spent. Photos from the contest here:

Opus One Dinner

In May, we were honored to host the winemaker from Opus One for a seven course wine pairing dinner. It was a great success, we sold out before we really had time to tell anyone about it! Photos from the dinner here:

The Milias Branding Party

We had a great time at Gilroy's organic garden, where we hosted our 'branding' party for all of the local ranchers and cowboys. There was a great turnout and everyone had a great time! Look for the intricate and wonderful brands as an artful piece of the restaurant decor. Be sure to check out photos from the party!
