Bionic Buzz® got to interview celebrity Chef Wayne Elias from Crumble Catering. The interview took place in his kitchen at the Rockwell Table and Stage where he is the executive chef.
Crumble Catering will once again be called upon to prepare thousands of dishes in a monumental feat that only the greatest chefs in North America can pull off. As the official caterers for the Steve Tyler GRAMMY Awards 2020 Viewing Party benefiting Janie’s Fund, they are tasked with serving and pleasing the taste buds of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers.
Iconic music legend and humanitarian Steven Tyler announced the return of his GRAMMY Awards® Viewing Party to benefit Janie’s Fund, presented by Live Nation, on Sunday, January 26th, 2020, at world famous Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. Hosted by Terry Crews, the exclusive gala, with a mouth-watering 3-course meal from Crumble’s Chef Wayne Elias promises to be an unforgettable sophomore year.
Featuring a can’t-miss performance by Pitbull, the gala will toast music’s biggest night with a VIP Crumble cocktail reception and dinner, live viewing of the 62st Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast, and live auction to support Janie’s Fund, Tyler’s philanthropic initiative that provides “a big voice for abused girls.”
For the event, the talented Elias and business partner Chris Diamond and their team of over 100 cooks, servers, pastry chefs, and staff, will be serving up some of the best culinary delicacies that have ever been created. Say’s Elias, “The dishes are complex, yet they appeal to a wide audience. I’m excited about incorporating some of my favorite culinary techniques and healthy ingredients to create some highly stylized plates that excite the palate and leave guests satiated.”
When it comes to crafting and serving inspired cuisine, Elias and Diamond, co-owners of Crumble Catering and the Los Feliz restaurant Rockwell: Table & Stage, know how to deliver. Diamond commented, “We are excited to support this wonderful cause with a dedicated team of professionals that recognize the importance of the mission statement and are delighted to make each fundraising moment a memorable experience.”
Guests this year will be treated to a full-course meal consisting of Heirloom Tomato, Asparagus & Burrata, Filet Mignon and Black Cod and Valrhona Chocolate Cake, and several other dish options all while big screens are broadcasting a live Grammy telecast at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.
With humble beginnings in 1915 when much of LA was still open farmland and big dreams, Raleigh Studios hosted some of Hollywood’s biggest stars since the Golden Age of film. Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford have practiced their craft on these grounds. Two Academy Award winners for Best Picture (1946’s “The Best Years of Our Lives” and 1967’s “In the Heat of the Night”) were filmed on that very lot.
Janie’s Fund is a philanthropic initiative created by Steven Tyler in partnership with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. Steven first gave voice to this cause with his hit “Janie’s Got a Gun,” and his establishment of the fund ensures that these vulnerable girls will have an enduring voice for years to come.
Steven Tyler’s annual GRAMMY Awards Viewing Party first launched in 2018 and raised more than $2.4 million dollars for Janie’s Fund, a philanthropic initiative created by Tyler in partnership with the national family services nonprofit Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls across America who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect.
Over the years, Crumble Catering has catered hundreds of A-list events from Harry Potter to Criminal Minds Beyond Borders, to Creed, Live By Night; along with cast and crew screenings for Argo, Coat of Many Colors, and Cloud Atlas.
